The Meadville Tribune’s free access Internet site — — is getting a new look starting Monday.

“It’s everything we have now and more,” said David Ohmer, the newspaper’s director of information technology.

“It’s a crisper, cleaner design,” said Moya Fash-Raynsford of the Tribune’s online sales and services department.

In addition to the posting of the day’s top local news and sports stories, classified advertising, listings of births and obituaries, the revamped site will feature national news from The Associated Press and entertainment news from Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., the Tribune’s parent company.

There also will be links to professional sports as well.

Ohmer said the revised site has RSS technology allowing a person to have the latest news stories on a chosen subject delivered to their Internet browser without having to visit the site.

The revised format still will allow readers to add comments via the Tribune’s online forum or at the end of a particular story.

A full gallery of local photos taken by the Tribune’s award-winning photography department also will remain accessible.

Publisher Jeanne Moore Yount said the newspaper was proud to offer the changes.

“We hope readers find our new free Web site better organized and will take advantage of our new features,” she said. “We continue to strive to provide the best in local news coverage to our readers — and better access to it.”

For those who want even more online access to the Tribune, Yount said the newspaper continues to offer subscriptions to its electronic version.

The paid electronic version is an exact digital reproduction of the Tribune’s printed version, with all the headlines, articles, pictures and ads in the same familiar format.
