I would create a simple database to store this message. Then have a
password-protected area that has a record update form. On your front
page, dynamically fill in the "message" area with the contents of the
database field.

I am operating websites for our community youth sports. But I would like to have some kind of message box, for the team's coaches, or at least the commissioner to be able to access the box (preferably with a password, to keep any mischievous activity happening to the box) to post before a game, when their game is called off due to inclement weather. But the message in the box would need to be able to be viewed by anyone accessing the web site. I'm needing to do this to save me the time of having to sit by the phone waiting for the cancellation call to post on the web site that the game is cancelled. I really DO have a life too! ;-)
