It is with heavy hearts we continue our coverage today of the horrific shootings Friday in Newtown, Conn. Especially for the survivors, the families of those lost and the members of that community, it is an innocence lost, a sense of security shattered.
In this, the season of giving, here are three new offerings from The News Tribune to you.
On Tuesday, we plan to launch our latest redesign of The News Tribune. Brace yourselves. We’re about to do something radical.
On Monday, Joint Base Lewis-McChord lost another soldier overseas. At 19, Pfc. Brandon Buttry was among the youngest of the 306 Lewis-McChord soldiers killed since the wars began in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have received about equal amounts of coverage overall this year by the mainstream media and neither has received much of an advantage over the other, according to a study released Friday.

I recently gave a talk for a local nonprofit on the theme: “10 Things You May Not Know about The News Tribune.” It generated a pretty good conversation, so I’m sharing those 10 Things here.
The News Tribune is made up of more than just ink and paper; it’s made up of people.
We’ve been experimenting with this Facebook requirement for one reason only: Our hope it would clean up the conversations people have with one another on our website. At least so far, it has.
Writing a thorough story about the Pierce County assessor-treasurer – the last of a three-part series on today’s front page – was a no-brainer.
My first week as executive editor after three years as managing editor included some milestone meetings, some little surprises and a growing sense of what’s different about my new job.
