This is a very cool site. I like that it is honest reporting without a slant either way. And we can comment on stories!

Awesome job, this is what Big Lake and the area needs.

I love that i can get the news and stuff from my phone, i dont have internet. Dont need it. You folks rock! Some news sites want me to pay or play games and by the time the paper comes out its not news. Old news is not news its history. And they have all kinds of scripts for their ads.
