Easily find more local news coverage at your fingertips with our new look

April 21, 2009 

The newspaper you’re holding looks a bit different from the one you’re used to reading.

We’ve redesigned The Olympian to offer a bolder look on Page One and to pack more news and information into the paper.

About the changes:

 • A new column down the left side of Page One features quick-read items and highlights of what’s inside.

 • Stories that continue from Page One now “jump” to the back of the A section so you can flip the section over and continue reading.

 • The daily Business page moves inside the A section.

 • A full-size Living section replaces the OlyInside tabloid on Sunday. The TV Book will be a separate section.

 • The daily and Sunday Living sections still include all of the features you’ve come to expect, along with expanded coverage of Food on Wednesday, Outdoors on Friday and Home and Garden on Saturday.

 • John Dodge’s Soundings column will move to Page One on Sundays.

What’s not changing is our commitment to local news and information. The Olympian has the largest news-gathering staff in Thurston County and will continue to provide comprehensive coverage of our communities and people, state government, the environment, the outdoors and much more.

Thanks for reading The Olympian.
