1) Can I view everything on your website without an online subscription?
Everything is available to view for free except our e-edition and archive service. All of our other online content is monitored by a metering system. You may view 15 premium articles for free every 30 days. Once you have met that 15 article threshold you will be asked to purchase an online subscription.

Articles in the following sections are metered: front page, local news, business, prep sports, local college, community sports, Express & amateur sports, opinions, offbeat & features.
3) What is considered free, unmetered and can be viewed as much as I wish?

4) What is included in an online subscription?
A subscription includes access to all of our website content including our e-edition or archives, which is an exact replica of the newspaper in a digital format. The e-edition is formatted for your desktop computer, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire tablets (download available in the Apple App Store or Google Play). Once a subscription is purchased, the user name and password you create at that time will grant access to all of these formats.
5) How much does an online subscription cost?
An online subscription is free if you are a 7 day print subscriber. If you are not a 7 day print subscriber the cost is $12 per month. Once you sign up we will automatically charge your credit card $12 each month until you alert us to stop your service. If you are a weekend print subscriber you can sign up for an online subscription at the reduced cost of $6 per month. Again, we will automatically charge your credit card $6 each month until you alert us to stop your online service.
