The staff at Kaechele Publications, Inc. is proud to introduce our revamped website, ALLEGAN CO NEWS, and three new products-electronic editions of our three community newspapers (e-editions)-debuting April 1! The new site is designed to provide more information and breaking news updates. To be sure you’re included, go to the bottom right on the home page. In the black information box, subscribe to our email notifications so each time we update our site, you will get an email. We are continuing to refine these products, so pardon our dust as we work to make the site easy to navigate and ever more informative.

First, a tour.

Beneath the logo for our domain name, “ALLEGAN CO NEWS,” is a grey band of links to help preview the news you want to read.

News: If you want all the headlines we’ve posted, this is for you. Here, you’ll find previews of stories from each of our three newspapers.

Sports: Want to skip right to the scores from the latest games? Here we’ll preview stories from high school sports throughout the county.

Opinion: Read previews of what our editors and columnists are writing about this week, from Ryan Lewis’ “Out of the Basement Office” to Dan Pepper’s “State of the Union (Enterprise)” to Scott Sullivan’s “Blue Star” and more.

Obituaries: We post obituaries online as soon as we receive them to better help loved ones and families pass along word of upcoming services.
