Hear yea, Hear yea! La Jolla Voices is the place to be heard

A

ll through the ages, communities had the need to get the word out about stuff.

In the 1700s, they used town criers and nailed notices on posts in the village square.

In the 1800s, they used newspapers and journals.

In the 1900s, they had radio and TV.

In the 2000s, we have La Jolla Voices.com

La Jolla Voices.com is a free and fun community bulletin board in the form of a website powered by the La Jolla Light. It is NOT our vetted local news site (lajollalight.com), but a separate non-edited social site where the community posts and monitors the content.

Why should you check it out?

• If you’re a business owner you can announce daily discounts or upcoming specials.

• If you’re a resident you can share your concerns or insights about issues of the day.

• If you’re part of a sport team or civic group you can connect with members about meetings and aftermaths.

• Committee chairs will find a place to post events and photos.

• And just for kicks, there’s a live chat room, aka the Buzz Board.

To entice La Jollans to log on and explore lajollavoices.com, we’ve created a spot on the site to post your thoughts on an issue that affects us all, a proposed Welcome to La Jolla sign. (See the related Welcome Sign story on Page 1A of the March 1 issue).

Please weigh-in. We will print some of the comments in an upcoming edition of The La Jolla Light..
