Starting Aug. 1, you will notice a change in this website that will require an online subscription in order for you to have full access to every story. You will still have free access to several stories, including breaking news that informs the public of a safety threat, public notices, classified notices, and other general news items. But for full access to every story, including local coverage of schools, city government and sports, which will be denoted by a gold check mark next to the headline, a membership will be required.

You have several different options when it comes to a membership, but essentially we are offering three levels: a one-day pass, $2.99; a one-month membership, $4.99; or an annual membership for $29.99, giving you full access to every story.

We hope you will choose some level of membership and thank you in advance for your continued support. It helps us provide the news and information that is so important to residents in our communities.

If you have a print subscription and you receive the paper in the mail, nothing changes with that. You will still receive that paper in your mailbox each week at no charge.

We recognize that you have many options when it comes to choosing online websites and how you stay informed. But for truly local content that is focused on the people of this community, we hope you see the value in helping support a product that keeps us all connected, not just now, but well into the future.

For additional questions about membership, contact our service center at 763-712-3544.
