few clouds


Laguna Beach

Welcome to the new Stu News layout…

We are excited to unveil our new layout today. We’ve attempted to make a few changes to improve your enjoyment.

First off, you’ll probably notice the slightly larger font sizes. We hope your eyes will appreciate it.

Secondly, we’ve eliminated the left “sidebar” as we call it. You would notice it as the column running down the left side of our page. We’ll now run a two-column vs. three-column style to make your mobile reading more complete.

Thirdly, we have combined our Front Page I and II back together again into one stream, and added some “read more” links on longer stories.

Special thanks to our webmaster Michael Sterling for working diligently to bring our ideas to fruition.

And to all of our advertisers, who help keep the whole thing going.

We dedicate today’s new edition to our founder Stu Saffer, who inspires us every day to be the best local news publishers we can be, and who left us too soon.

This year marks 10 years of Stu News; we look forward to the next 10 with you, Laguna!
