The comment section has been updated and your positive input is welcome.
Last week the comment section of this journal was turned off for 5 days due to an overwhelming amount of rude and hateful comments directed toward myself and one city council member who was the subject of last weeks article’s.
Letters to the editor and op-eds are always welcome. Your comments need to be on point and to the subject matter. Remember there is somebody on this end who must read and approve those comments. And it is draining to read such hateful rhetoric.
Advertisers have requested we remove the comment section, so it’s up to you to provide concrete, cohesive thoughts in a concise manner. This is not a troll farm for couch potatoes. Your comments should be limited to one or two paragraphs maximum. Nonsense thoughts like “oh yeah…” will not be posted. Please stay on the topic.
Last week one commenter called my phone close to midnight. They were screaming on the phone that their comment did not post. I was just trying to sleep after a long day.
While we took possession of this site on April 1, the sale did not complete and close until April 15… just a few days ago.
In those two weeks WEHOville got the scoop that Mayor Horvath was planning her announcement that she was running for County Supervisor.
John Heilman shared his epic Op-Ed looking back over 36 years of West Hollywood history and how we have grown up.
Jerome Cleary’s Op-Ed “the Urban Blight of the Sunset Spectacular” attracted CBS News and Orange Barrel Media committed to working closer with residents.
And Manny Rodriguez presented his case against the closure of Robertson Blvd in his first opinion piece that attracted multiple stories and news organizations.
The transition has not been smooth but we are moving forward. Every day is a small step forward to clean up the mess that was left behind. One day I hope to share the real story behind keeping WEHOville alive.
As we move forward, WEHOville will be shifting away from traditional news coverage and repositioning our platform to serve as a local publication focusing on stories that spotlight emerging small businesses, historical community achievements, breaking news, local people and points of discussion, community events, as well as hotel, restaurant, and nightlife guides.
We would love for you to be a part of the brand-new team of West Hollywood professionals running WEHOville. We are currently looking to hire editors and writers who have a passion for the exceptional qualities that make up West Hollywood. Please e-mail your resume to info@WEHOville.com
We are greatly looking forward to using this platform to celebrate the uniqueness of our community.
Thank you from the new WEHOville team.
