Congratulations to Tracy Moyer and all who made last weekend's Relay For Life of Hesperia a fantastic event!

It's a new day in the newspaper world, as I'm sure you've heard. Not only does the Hesperia Star publish a print edition every Tuesday, but we also have a growing online presence.

Just a few years ago, we just had our website, hesperiastar.com, but today the Hesperia Star is on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Speaking of YouTube, the Hesperia Star not only maintains a channel on the popular video website, but we are uploading videos of local news happenings and people on our website. Recently uploaded videos include cancer survivor Jim Rosa describing fast track motorcycle racing, boxing coach Louie Miranda training two young boxers, Oak Hills High School's "Every 15 Minutes" program and a truck versus train news video by contributor Jose Gonzalez.

But I would urge all Hesperia Star visitors to "like" our Facebook page, where you can get story updates before they are published in our newspaper and view photos that don't necessarily make it to print.
