If you're a regular reader of the Duluth News Tribune, you likely noticed the big change atop the front page the moment the paper hit your doorstep or you picked it up at the gas station this morning — well before you read the first big headline. Today is the debut of the News Tribune's brand-new flag. It's bigger, more colorful and better represents our news organization today.

Most newspaper readers wouldn’t know the difference between a Nimrod font and a Merriweather font. They’re more concerned with the content — stories, photos, breaking news, last night’s big sports score, maybe the day’s horoscope. That’s fine. We’re always concerned with the content, too. But by the time you’re reading this column, you’ve probably noticed something a little different about your News Tribune today.

Filling out a NCAA men's basketball tournament bracket or two — and then watching them implode shortly afterward — used to be the extent of March Madness. But thanks to social media and our culture's addiction to brackets, you can fill out tournament brackets for just about everything — from "Star Wars" characters and classic rock guitar riffs to top adult beverages or a battle royale among feisty mammals. The best part of all these alternative brackets? They're less apt to bust.
