Welcome to the Lighthouse, the official blog of The Northern Light newspaper. The Lighthouse is the place for smaller news items and tidbits of local information that might not make it into the print edition of The Northern Light.

Unlike the main content produce for The Northern Light, content on The Lighthouse will be less formal in nature and use first-person pronouns ("I", "we", etc.) to add a sense of personality. Content on The Lighthouse will also be not as complete as some articles in The Northern Light and may only be one or two paragraphs long. Also, content on The Lighthouse may appear rougher and less edited than articles that appear in the paper, but the blog's authors will still strive for the highest accuracy that can be obtained.

The Northern Light reporter Jeremy Schwartz will be the main contributor to The Lighthouse, but other The Northern Light staff may add items from time to time.

The Lighthouse will also give readers the chance to comment on any posts they find interesting. The Northern Light is well aware comment discussions can get heated, so we stress civility in comments left on this blog. Please refrain from personal attacks, name-calling and threats of violence. The northern Light also encourages those who leave comments to use their real names in the interest of accountability.

Finally, The Lighthouse is a work in progress and may undergo substantial changes as readers react to the content posted here. The Northern Light kindly asks for the patience of its readers as we edge ever so slightly into the world of blogging.

Thank you, and enjoy The Lighthouse Blog!
