    I have tried several times to get used to the new format of your website and I cannot. It is LAME to say the least. There are only a dozen stories (give or take) on your home page. I have been forced to go back to WOODTV for my local news. Sucks to be you. This is why nobody is commenting because nobody is getting their news here anymore. I'm surprised you have any advertisers.
