With the Cape Cod Times who needs Facebook?






Good Day Readers:
Came upon the Cape Cod Times (http://capecodonline.com) recently on our internet travels - what a delightful newspaper (serving The Cape, Martha's Vineward and the Nantucket area - circulation approximately 60,000). It's online version is packed with information and exceptionally well designed. Reminds us a little of Kingston, Ontario's Whig Standard of bygone days which was an outstanding publication for a town its size - excellent writers. Have lost contact with it so can't comment on the present quality.
Seems to us newspapers such as the Winnipeg Free Press and Winnipeg Sun could learn much from studying the CCT.

One feature that caught our attention was its Court Reports covering thee Judicial Districts (Orleans, Barnstable and Falmouth). With coverage like this who needs Facebook, MySpace or Twitter to find out the latest on their "friends?"
Now why couldn't the WFP or WS with significantly larger circulations do the same?
Sincerely,
Clare L. Pieuk
