UPDATE: We anticipate our official launch coming tomorrow, Sept. 3.
This site is the future home of a brand new online news site serving Wyoming County, N.Y.
The Wyoming County Free Press will be a sister site of The Batavian. The Batavian has served Genesee County since May, 2008, and has become the most popular news source and the top business promotion vehicle in Genesee County.
The Wyoming County Free Press will operate much the same, with the same philosophy as The Batavian. We will cover news of Wyoming County and only news of Wyoming County. The businesses that promote their goods and services through the Free Press will all be Wyoming County businesses.
We will concentrate on breaking news and community news, from the minor (sometimes very minor happenings) to the big stories.
We will provide a forum for community discussion (and just like The Batavian, real names will be required to participate).
This site right now is in what developers call "beta." That means it's under development. Links are broken, or point to the wrong place and some information is merely copied over from The Batavian and hasn't been updated for the new site yet. We're planning to officially launch the Free Press on Sept. 1. So long as you see this post at the top of the home page, it means we're still in "beta."
Feel free to poke around. If you have questions or comments, e-mail Publisher Howard Owens at email@example.com.
We look forward to serving this community with an eye toward seeing Wyoming County thrive and residents becoming more connected and involved. We hope you will support us by supporting our sponsors and telling your friends about the new Wyoming County Free Press.
