Serving a mainly rural area, the website contains stories that are sent in from municipalities, local agencies, school boards, local health unit and include provincial and federal press releases. Eventually, it hopes to solicit news from citizens interested in writing about local events. These are put into sections including news, entertainment, homeview, lifeview and sport.
