There are thousands of articles and listings of governmental entities and community groups in our database. We recently added some new features to find and bookmark information of interest. We also made it one-click easy to connect with your local elected representatives.
Let’s dive in and explore the new stuff!
With so much local news in our database, and more being written by our team or imported from our media allies, it can be hard to keep track of the news you're intersted in.

You can sort by topic to see all the news about local community groups or local governments. Or select from one of over two dozen topics like Animals, Families & Children, Transportation, Veterans, Water, etc.
You can also use the Search News form to find articles via keywords in their title or content.
Members can now search for news, community groups or elected representatives in different counties or all of the counties in our coverage area.
