Today we are unveiling an enhanced website design with new, exciting features and much faster load times.

The website was developed in partnership with world-renowned design firm Garcia Media. The goal of the redesign is to improve the experience for our readers and advertisers. We think it does just that and hope you agree!

“We want everyone to be able to read the local news, and we believe our readers deserve the best possible experience, whether they’re reading the physical paper or browsing our website,” said Ellis Smith, general manager and editor of The Hawk Eye. “With more people accessing their local news through a mobile device, this transition will allow The Hawk Eye to present our award-winning local stories in a format that works at every screen size and on every device.”

You will see many new features, including:

Faster loading of content and advertising on all pages An infinite scroll feature that allows you to breeze easily through articles More images and larger presentation of videos and photo galleries A mobile experience similar to desktop for easy navigation no matter the device

We welcome your feedback, and hope you will take a few minutes to add your comments below.

Thank you, and we hope you enjoy the site.
