We have a new LoHud.com opinion page that gathers all of our commentary in one place. Find it here, or type http://www.lohud.com/opinion into your address bar.
In addition to showcasing today’s best work across the top of the page, the page makes it easier to find our other content:
Editorials. The five most recent appear at the top of the first column. Today’s editorial often occupies the top position on the page.
Surveys. Weigh in on hot topics such as teacher evaluations in New York, the county budgets in Westchester and Rockland or the fiscal cliff in Washington in the middle column. Surveys change often, but you can always find previous surveys on this blog.
Editorial Spotlight videos. Every interview with The Journal News Editorial Board is conducted live on camera and webcast on LoHud.com as an “Editorial Spotlight.” We archive those videos for later replay. Find the most recent videos and links to previous videos in the third column.
Commentary. This is a mix of commentary on mostly Westchester, Rockland and Putnam county issues but also topics of New York, national and international interest. Find commentary beneath the editorials, and click the link to learn how to submit your own commentary.
Letters. Many of the most popular posts on LoHud.com are your letters to the editor. The five most recent letters are listed on the new page, and we’ve included links to other letters and directions for submitting a letter.
Columnist Phil Reisman. Reisman is a veteran journalist and native of Westchester County, and he writes at least twice weekly on local and government issues for The Journal News and LoHud.com.
Ongoing issues of importance to the board. The Editorial Board weighs in on many local and public policy issues, but a few rise above to become the most important and most deserving of your attention. Right now one of those is the project to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge crossing the Hudson River and linking Westchester and Rockland counties. The public works project, one of the largest in the nation, is expected to take five years and $5 billion.
Another new feature is its social component — a Twitter stream of various opinions and prominent links to this blog. You can follow links to articles mentioned in the Twitter feed, follow people, reply and retweet. Suggest a new person or feed to add to the list by clicking on “Suggest a feed” beneath the box to send me an email, and click on our names to follow my colleagues and me on Twitter.
