York Daily Record/Sunday News to don different, more contemporary dress, Part III

Linked in/Neat stuff: Low-flying C-17/Stewartstown station
This is the earliest known edition of the German-language Die York Gazette, ancestor of the York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News. Newspapers, indeed, have changed their look since 1796. Sometimes change is hard for readers, but if papers didn’t change, they’d still look like this. Also of interest: York Daily Record/Sunday News to don different, more contemporary dress.

More neat stuff from all over … .

Readers will notice that the York Daily Record/Sunday News’ Living section Tuesday will have a new look. That section is on the leading edge of a redesign of the newspaper that will be phased in over the next three weeks.

Readers will find a refreshed, more modern look than the design that you’ve seen for the past five years. The content – stories and photos – will be presented in a more welcoming way.

The design will allow readers to more easily find what’s on the page.

We believe you’ll like this new look. (For a sneak peek of the front page, visit: New look.)

This low-flying plane, flying over York County Friday evening causing all kinds of reactions, turned out to a pilot practicing landings and takeoffs at Harrisburg International Airport. Check out readers’ photos of the C-17.

Shutdown? Any U.S. government shutdown, deadlining today, could affect Gettysburg National Military Park and Fort Indiantown Gap.
