Not very long ago, the only way to get minute-by-minute description of an event was to watch TV or listen to the radio.

The Internet has changed all that, and while sometimes the move to using the Internet has been difficult, giving us the opportunity to keep our readers informed in new ways.

Probably the best way to keep you informed when something big happens are the live blogs we’ve started to run. Now, when Presidential candidates come to town, you can follow along with us. And, unlike TV and radio, with a live blog, it isn’t just us talking.

Take a look at our blog today from the John McCain/Sarah Palin campaign event. Not only can you read what’s happening, you can ask questions for us to answer, and you can put your opinion out there, as well.

It’s one of the ways that we’re trying move our coverage away from just ink on paper and into the digital world.

So what else do you want to see us do to keep you better informed?
