As editor of ThisWeek Community Newspapers in Delaware County, it is my pleasure to introduce a new feature on our award-winning Web site, ThisWeekNews.com.

This new link to "YourDelawareCounty" provides a portal to all things Delaware, Powell and Sunbury, as well as Liberty, Orange, Genoa and Berlin townships. Residents and business owners are encouraged to sign up and meet old friends, make new friends and share opinions, ideas, pictures, videos, etc.

YourDelawareCounty will include the latest news and sports stories, as reported by ThisWeek staff.

Delaware County has come a long way in the past decade, and ThisWeek has followed its progress. Rapid growth in population, housing and business have changed the appearance of the county's most heavily traveled routes and many of its lesser traveled ones. Construction of new school buildings has become almost routine in the Olentangy school district and is at hand in the Big Walnut school district. Local governments are faced with the challenge of meeting the increased demand for services in today's uncertain economic climate.

ThisWeekNews.com's YourDelawareCounty aims to continue its role in the community by providing residents and business owners with a central location to not only meet up and make new friends, but also to voice their opinions and share their ideas on their community.

Just a few house rules, though -- and they're listed on the site: Be civil and on topic and refrain from profanity. We might miss some violators, so we need your help to police these comments. E-mail pcomstock@thisweeknews.com if you read a comment you think is objectionable.

Please visit yourDelawareCounty at yourdelawarecounty. thisweeknews.com.

Join and enjoy.

Paul Comstock is community editor of ThisWeek Community Newspapers Delaware, Olentangy and Big Walnut.
