  • Competition Comment: The Macleod Gazette has a welcoming look and feel to it. It makes good use of its template to create a reliable, familiar formula so readers know where to find things. Readers should be drawn in by the colourful front page, excellent use of people photos in the teaser box. Frank made some hay out of the trip to the toboggan hill. It's a nice well-rounded, general-interest paper.
