The following email message came from our friend Rick Nicholson on lower Denison, near the Brooklyn Centre Burying Grounds, or Denison Cemetery. We plan on being there:

Here’s a new online presence from our friend Frank Mestnik over at Liberty News, covering local events in Brooklyn, Old Brooklyn, and now Brooklyn Centre. See the May issue for the picture of our West 39th Street “forest trail in the city,” a really neat picture of the stone wall apprentice artisans, my article “ReImaging Cleveland,” and the ad for the June 13th Riverside Cemetery tour. This newspaper is fun, and now online. We also ordered mail delivery using the convenience of PayPal.
May paper available
Update- The May paper was printed 4/29, to the USPS 4/30, public area distribution began 4/30, and is available in the download section as of 5/1. The next issue will be available for the first week in June.
The new website is up and mostly functional. I expect to see a few crashes and coding clashes, so please post in the support forum with any functionality that does not appear to be working properly. I’ll try to address those items as quickly as I can. Also, kindly post any improvements in functionality you would like to see. I would like to start integrating and modifying while it’s new.
Majority of the site features requires you to be logged in. This is to help prevent spam and site security. To create an account, click on the "Social" tab. Please note- there are privacy setting under profile options.
Classifieds – residential classifieds are free and should be working properly.
Forum – There’s only a few forum categories for the launch, and will add more as needed/requested.
Blog – This should be working properly.
Mail Delivery – Online payment system to have Liberty News delivered to your home or business. Please note, if your mailing address is different than your billing address, please specify that under "Special Instructions" while on the PayPal link.
Content – You’re seeing the basic shell of the website. Content will be added as time goes on. I don’t anticipate having many of the same items on both the website and printed paper. Articles which were in the paper that do appear online may have additional content added, photos, downloadable attachments, etc.
Planned – Chat feature under the profile options, a few other options/features, better submission form for paper mail delivery (there isn’t one), a lot of window dressing.
I expect it to take a little time to have everything close to where I would like it, so I thank you ahead of time for the patience. It’s my hope the site can fill a few communication voids in the community within a month. Thanks – Frank Mestnik
