Some of you may have noticed that the Pioneer Journal website got a face lift this week. Similar to the Perham Focus, Park Rapids Enterprise and Detroit Lakes Newspapers, which are all owned by Fargo-based Forum Communications Company, the Pioneer Journal now features a cleaner look, as well as other improvements. Unlike the old website, the new platform is more accessible. The front page immediately features a sizeable featured content scroll area, which is placed at the top of the page, giving our town’s stories easier access and better visual representation.
