CityBeat redesigns the website

Not a moment too soon, CityBeat has given up the white-type-on-black look that made its website so difficult to read. The new design is definitely bolder. It's much easier to see what's in the paper. This week's issue includes a new media column by Mick Farren, a Q-and-A with mayoral candidate Walter Moore, and a look at the endorsement wars in the race by Dean Kuipers. The redesign also finds room for Gary Leonard's series of street photos. More features are expected to be added in coming weeks, Editor Steve Appleford says.
