Our View: There’s more to the Light online

Last week a reader asked us a question that we think deserves an answer. He asked why we didn’t print a story detailing the blow-by-blow City Council action on the Whitney project in La Jolla Shores and instead wrote about the Whitneys’ options in the face of the vote requiring an environmental report.

The answer is simple and one that we hope will draw more people to our ever-expanding presence at lajollaight.com. We wrote about the decision and posted it on our website as soon as the council voted that Tuesday — which was after press time for the May 5 edition. Because the decision came after our deadline we did not have the story in print that week so we felt a more informative story for May 12 was to find out what’s next.

You will see us doing more of that kind of reporting: Getting the news out as quickly as we can online and often writing from a different perspective for the printed edition. We hope that encourages you to watch the website daily — even more than once a day — to see what we’ve added.

Besides the news, features and photos we post online, our site brings you an opportunity to comment on stories. You can add to the coverage, give your view or even give us a tip on where to look for more information on a story. We encourage people to use the comment feature at the end of the story and will strive to uphold standards of civility in some of the more heated debates.

Go beyond our home page to find new elements like our feature recipes from area restaurants, sponsored columns from our advertisers, our photo contests (Watch for the Mother-Daughter lookalike winners next week), and updated Open House listings if you’re looking for a new home.

The Light wants to be your source for La Jolla news, sports, features, good deals — not just in print but online. So be part of our online community. Sign up for our weekly newsletters at www.lajollalight.com/newsletter/.
