Let the sun shine in with Sunshine Week

Today begins Sunshine Week, the week that the journalism community uses to shine the spotlight on government transparency, the challenges we all face in maintaining open government, and some of the good work being done on the citizens' behalf to keep government open and accessible.

Throughout the week on our Opinion page, and in newspapers throughout the country, we'll be publishing columns from experts and advocates in the field to provide readers with information and perspective on the challenges we face.

In today's Daily Gazette editorial, we write about some of the new and growing challenges we face to keep government open.

We hope you'll take some time this week to read this blog and the columns, and we hope they'll educate you and inspire you to fight for your right to know.
