News Press sports a new look and contents


STILLWATER, Okla. — New community voices

A new feature on the front of today’s paper and most days going forward is called a “Q5.” It stands for five questions, or quick five, and is a question-and-answer format with members of the community about community issues and events.

Other new features in future editions will include an Education Spotlight on Wednesdays, To Do This Weekend on Thursdays, a Church Profile on Fridays and Making a Difference in the Community — highlighting local volunteer efforts — on Saturdays.

The Your News page and other specialty pages throughout the week will feature of a variety of new columnists. Today’s paper features a new business column by Stillwater Chamber of Commerce president Lisa Navrkal, and new sports column by former longtime sports editor Ron Holt, which will be published each Tuesday.

Look for new columns from community experts on various subjects and pages throughout the week.

Charlie Brown is back

The Comics page has been redesigned today with several changes. The Bridge column has been removed — it will now appear just once a week on Sunday in the Lifestyle section — and the Dear Abby advice column has been added to the page.

Five new comics have been added, including Classic Peanuts, the most popular comic strip of all time and winner of the New Press’s comic poll in 2010. Also added were Pearls Before Swine, Arlo & Janis, Tundra and Non-Sequiter. For Better or For Worse, which is no longer producing new strips, was removed.
