A New Start for The 109

As a Christian, I would like to comment on the Jan. 28 column “Proposed abortion law attests to loose morals” by Andrew Weatherford.

First, I would like to state that from my personal religious standpoint rather than a moral one, that abortion is wrong. Biblically there seems to be plenty of evidence to support this case with verses like Jeremiah 1:5 which states, “before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” However, the Conservative right seem to misunderstand the fact that religious morals do not necessarily translate to societal morals.

Welcome to The (new and improved) 109.
Today, we’re launching a new version of our website, the109.org. It has a new logo and a new slogan.  It’s a new look and feel altogether. The scope of our site is wider too. Although we’re still based in the zip code 76109, we’re looking beyond the boundaries of the zip code at rising areas of Fort Worth like the Cultural District, the West 7th Street area and the reinvigorated Magnolia Street corridor.
Although the website initially launched in 2010, we feel like today is our second birth. While this has always been a student-run enterprise, The 109 only gained a full-time student staff this January. We’ve tried to up the ante with our content to match this renewed commitment. Today’s launch is the culmination of that effort. With this launch, we sought to make this new site cleaner, easier to use, more interactive and more responsive to social media.
This slice of Fort Worth is our home and we’re proud to serve this community. We hope this new version of The 109 will help us do a better job for that purpose. Let us know what you think of this new website! Hit us up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
