    You guys have got a great website. Did you ever get your hard copy edition out? Here’s a suggestion. Put a date on the website and put a newsfeed. It doesn’t only have to be news from Portage. I’m sure Portage residents and those on the farms and villages around Portage would be interested in what’s going on in the big world around them.
