It’s built with WordPress using a responsive design to accomodate everything from phones to tablets to desktop browsers.  There are a  few interesting plugins:

The Facebook Like Box allows visitors to share the articles with their friends on Facebook.  Getting the word out to friends and subscribers is one of the key use cases for this website.  A Google Analytics plugin allows staff to evaluate how successful social media campaigns have been in driving visitors to the site.

FlexPaper, a web-based document viewer, allows visitors to browse the PDF version of newspapers without leaving the current page they are viewing.
