Because there is a lot going on with Hurricane Sandy, and because our website was recently down, we are keeping the news updated on The Journal's Facebook page . Check our Facebook page for current coverage and information about Sandy.
We will be back here after the paper goes to press with our usual coverage of local government, schools, etc.
We are also building a new website - so check back to check out the new redesign!
