Join the Tribune on Facebook

WILLMAR -- If you have something to say about local news, state politics or sports, the West Central Tribune wants to hear from you.

In addition to the traditional letters to the editor and the link on the website, the Tribune has a page on Facebook at

The Facebook page will give you a chance to comment on some of the top local and state stories of the day. Sometimes we'll ask a question to try to get a conversation going.

We've had some lively conversations and entertaining comments on the page in recent months, but we'd like to see even more.

Please join the more than 900 people who have already become fans of the Tribune on Facebook. Judging by their comments, many of them are typical Minnesotans -- they seem to talk about the weather more than anything else.

To become a fan, you need to be a member of Facebook. To sign up, go to; it's free.

If you already use Facebook, use the "Find us on Facebook" link on the right side of the homepage to go to the Tribune's page. Click on "Like" to become a fan. You can recommend the page to your friends, too.

If you use Twitter, you can follow the Tribune there. The address is @wctrib. Posts to the Facebook page are automatically posted on Twitter.
