Welcome to Home in Henderson: A user’s guide

Links to campaign articles are in this guide!

For readers who are visiting for the first time, here’s a quick and dirty tutorial to help you find your way around the site.

The first thing you need to do is to click on (more…) link in blue right underneath this paragraph.

Congratulations! You’ve taken your first step into the world of blogging.

Navigating the site is relatively easy. To read a feature, simply click on the underlined headline or the blue (more…) link under the first sentence of the article. To see all of the article posts on the front page, scroll down to the bottom of the screen with your mouse. As you scroll towards the bottom of the page, you’ll see articles from the past few days.

The news articles are vetted for accuracy and we stand by the information that they contain. Comment posts, however, are a different matter.

Underneath the blue (more…) link is an underlined link in gray that says Comments with a number next to it. This will take you directly to comments that readers have made under each article post “thread”. As with any publicly available information source, you’ll have to decide for yourself if the information the comment posts contain is accurate, credible, incredible, weird, biased, or straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth.

To look at articles posted earlier than the last few days, you have two options: you can click the blue link at the bottom of the page that says Next Page >>, or you can use the links in the right-hand column of the page to go back to a specific month. A Google search engine is also provided in the right-hand column to reference specific items. You can choose to do a global search of the whole World Wide Web or a site-specific Home in Henderson search.

The left-hand column contains a variety of links, including weather from The Weather Channel, links to articles by category, pages containing additional information about Home in Henderson, and a wealth of links by category to sites that are important to residents of Vance County and the City of Henderson.

If you’ve found us from our ad in today’s Daily Dispatch, then you’re probably interested in articles pertaining to this year’s election. Please find links to the most relevant articles below arranged from earliest to most recent. When you’re done reading each article, you can return to this guide by clicking the Back button on your browser.

These articles are only a taste of what Home in Henderson has to offer. Poke around and explore the links. Nothing is breakable, and our links won’t take you anywhere you wouldn’t want to go. There are opinion pieces from various contributors, video of City Council and County Commission meetings (a fairly new offering), photographs of Henderson events, and, of course, the opportunity to state your views about anything and everything anonymously or using your real name.

Making a comment post is easy. Just scroll down to the bottom of any given article. Underneath the last comment post you’ll find a place to enter a name (which need not be your own, but must not be anyone else’s, either), a valid email address, an optional link to your website or another website, and then the text of your comment. Comments should be in good taste, be free of vulgar language and obscenity, without racial bias, and should not attempt to libel individuals. Home in Henderson reserves the right to delete or edit any comment post that does not meet its editorial standards without notice.

If you have any problems, feel free to contact us at homeinhenderson@nc.rr.com.
