    Hey all. I am working on this newspaper's site and I would like some feedback to give to them. It is located at http://wp.medina-gazette.com/
    Any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.

    I like it, it has a good layout. The banners at the top are a little distracting.

    How did you make the scrolling Associated Press Video widget?

    I added it to WP Site category on http://www.chimp-simple.com

    I like the design, very functional, when you increase the font size of the page though, the content seems to shrink, I'm guessing the sidebar width is in em's?

    You are obviously still working on the validation.

    How'd you get the different post to load for the different categories?

    I like it. The newspapery header with the WordPress-ish calendar and Date and Weather is teriffic - every newspaper would want approximately that header, even personal blogs and launchpads would be good with that kind of functional / dynamic header instead of just a banner going all the way across.

    That's interesting however you did the fluid action in the center column. It works fine in Firefox, down to a certain point. It looks the better maximized on a 1024x screen, seems to get hairy down around 850 so I'm not sure how it works on an 800 px screen (which could be just 5% of viewers, these days).

    Suggestion:
    In the left nav column, change the word "Categories" to "Sections". Those appear to be the sections of the newspaper (although, granted, also sub-sections and columns). Most folks call 'em sections in a newspaper, and Categories seems like a forced WordPress Word in that spot, to me.

    Wow you're a wordpress pro! I'm definitely going to bookmark this site for inspiration on future wordpress sites I do. You did a fantastic job - though the only thing I would change is the first thing you see is that top ad banner. Bumping it down below the header might be better in my opinion.
