    Condense this:

    © 2006 GastonCounty.info. Hosted by HyperActive-Media.com

    GastonCounty.info is not directly associated with, or makes claims to be associated with, any government office/ personnel in Gaston County nor the Gaston County's official website. GastonCounty.info is a website that is independent of itself that is continuously striving to bring about community and information about Gaston County, NC. Any other associations will only be deducted assumptions and may or may not be confirmed by this site's administrator.

    It seems to take up all of the page!

    I agree with filmn about the disclaimer. I also think the whole header layout is a bit bulky. I'd tighten that up as well, so that visitors can get right at the information rather than being told that they may find it further down. My first thought is to use a subtler image, one that can be used as background for the header and navigation rather than just sit below it.

    although i did not condense the information, i did reduce the size of the font.

    does it look any better?

    thanks guys & gals

    Reducing the font size may help a little, but I think it's more that you really don't need it in all caps, or need all of it. If it were me, I'd cut it into the two seperate blocks that it is:

    Disclaimer: GastonCounty.info is not directly associated with, or makes claims to be associated with, any government office/ personnel in Gaston County nor the Gaston County's official website.

    And then have a mission statement or about page where you would put the following:
    GastonCounty.info is a website that is independent of itself that is continuously striving to bring about community and information about Gaston County, NC.

    The last portion of the legal notice thingy really makes very little sense to me and I would not use it at all.

    Then again, if you want all of it, just put a simle statement like what I mentioned above for the disclaimer and then put something like "For our full legal disclaimer, click here." and then have a link.

    As the other poster mentioned, I'd try to find an image that you could use as a header background for your Title at the top of the page. This puts the info at the readers fingertips instead of forcing them to scroll. Just my opinion though.

    Looks like a great resource and I wish you the best of luck!
