Some of you readers have already noticed. We’ve changed our name. We are now officially “News Lincoln County.” On the web, NewsLincolnCounty.com.
Why the change?
Well, for one, LincolnCountyToday.com was a wee bit too close to the name of another publication here on the Oregon Coast, a publication we admire and respect for what they do and how they do it. Oregon Coast Today. (We weren’t aware of OCT before we moved here.) Dave and Nikki Rice have been “full out and full in” with their excellent publication that covers what’s fun on the coast in a creative, lively way.
That’s one reason.
Another reason is that we want to be known by our name for what we do. THE NEWS. Readers who have been shopping the site for local news and information know that’s exactly what we provide. Wide ranging. Well written. And with a sense of what the news means and how events and decisions fit into a longer range view of the community.
As of last week, those who go to LincolnCountyToday.com as a major news source are automatically switched to the new site, NewsLincolnCounty, without having to do anything different. And it will remain this way for the foreseeable future. But for those who want to have the correct name in their “Bookmarks” or “Favorites” just make NewsLincolnCounty.com a “Bookmark or Favorite.”
Simple as that.
Now back to the news of the day….
