As of Fri­day morn­ing,

has in­tro­duced the beta ver­sion of its new web­site. This beta site can be found at anvil.cov­news.com.

Why beta? Well, as it is with any­thing, there may be kinks that need to be worked out. We want to make sure our web­site has ev­ery­thing worked out be­fore it is com­pletely live.

This is where you come in.

Visit the site and take a look around. We want to hear what you think. Did you have trou­ble log­ging in? Were you un­able to find some­thing you were look­ing for? Th­ese are things we need to know.

Our read­ers have been beg­ging for a web­site since I’ve been with this news­pa­per. It is long over­due.

What’s dif­fer­ent? So much! The new web­site of­fers a re­spon­sive de­sign, which al­lows desk­top, tablet and mo­bile view­ers to have the same great ex­pe­ri­ence. The new web­site also al­lows you to log in straight from Face­book, which should elim­i­nate some of the is­sues we’ve seen pre­vi­ously.

With the launch of the new web­site,

is of­fer­ing a spe­cial sub­scrip­tion deal so you have the chance to check ev­ery­thing out. With four free weeks, you are able to take a look around and check ev­ery­thing out and of­fer feed­back be­fore get­ting charged. As the ed­i­tor of

I would like to thank you for your pa­tience as we have been work­ing our way through this process. We have heard your cries for an up­dated web­site and we hope you are happy with what we are pro­vid­ing.

Any­one with sug­ges­tions, com­ments or ques­tions about the new web­site can email news@ cov­news.com.

So, af­ter a few days on the beta site we hope to have all of the kinks worked out. We will then switch ev­ery­thing over and of­fi­cially be­come the Cov­News.com you are used to.

Up­dat­ing the web­site is just one of the many changes that have taken place at

in re­cent weeks. As many of you have no­ticed, we are in the process of get­ting this up­dated in our print pub­li­ca­tion as well.

We hope you are not only en­joy­ing the changes, but un­der­stand our thought process. As your com­mu­nity news­pa­per we are con­stantly work­ing to cre­ate the prod­uct you want.

Thank you for your con­tin­ued sup­port.
