Here at Riptide we are always thinking about how to be more useful and relevant to our readers. So we are refocusing our news stories and op-eds on the environment, wildlife, nature conservation, land use, weather, education, transportation, art and music, photography, physical and mental health, food and drink, and generally all things that make the San Mateo County Coastside a good place to live. This means not trying to compete with local media in covering crimes and traffic accidents. So let's hear from you about these editorial changes. Send us your stories and pictures of life on the coast. To submit items, click the "Email Me" link on the sidebar. To submit comments, click the "Comments" link below each post.
