We always welcome news tips!

A couple of days ago, one of our readers alerted us that the AOL Hometown web page for our “CBN contact info for news tips” link on the right hand side had been taken down. We immediately clicked on the link and saw an announcement that all AOL web pages were discontinued this past November without notice to their users. Over the weekend we set up another web page for the link with our email address for readers who want to reach us.

We apologize for this not-so-little glitch, but we also want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who sends us community-related news that we and many of our readers would not otherwise know about. All of you help make our content more relevant and a whole heckuva lot more interesting. Many of our contributors tell us they get good response from our readers, especially when it comes to things like volunteer opportunities, fundraisers, and other special events.

We invite all our readers to send us news items. They can pertain to what your church, school, charity or civic organization is doing; local government and school issues; even lost pets (we’ve covered two instances so far). We treat each email we receive with urgency, so you can generally expect a reply from us within hours and likely see your news published within a day or two, sometimes same day. Let us hear from you!
