About us

WinCity News & Views is a new web­site ded­i­cat­ed to shar­ing insight­ful com­men­tary and curat­ed news from var­i­ous sources — with the occa­sion­al orig­i­nal news sto­ry. We may also include cre­ative works of fic­tion, poet­ry, pho­tog­ra­phy, and oth­er cre­ative works by local contributors.

Who are we? We are a group of Clark County friends bound by a love of this com­mu­ni­ty and a desire to pro­vide a dynam­ic source of local news and commentary.

We want to empha­size that we’re not try­ing to com­pete with exist­ing local media. On the con­trary, we will curate news items of inter­est to our vis­i­tors from media around the region and point them to the source websites.

We will also fea­ture orig­i­nal pieces rang­ing from opin­ion and com­men­tary to fic­tion, local fea­tures, and oth­er con­tent. We will wel­come con­tri­bu­tions from our neigh­bors as well, although we will be selec­tive. We want to present high-qual­i­ty local con­tent, both orig­i­nal and sourced from around the region.

WinCity will nev­er have a “pay­wall.” All con­tent will be freely avail­able, although some links to exter­nal news sources may require a sub­scrip­tion. This is, of course, beyond our control.

This is an all-vol­un­teer oper­a­tion — no one is get­ting paid to work for us. This project is a labor of love, because we rec­og­nize the need for high-qual­i­ty, curat­ed local news that goes beyond what large social media com­pa­nies and chain media con­glom­er­ates can offer a small town such as ours.

So please bear with us through ear­ly stum­bles and fail­ures — they are sure to come. If this exper­i­ment suc­ceeds, we will learn and grow and become an impor­tant part of Winchester and Clark County.
