Online paper should cost less

Posted: Friday, June 02, 2000

The price of our local paper is ridiculous. There is no reason we should be getting charged so much for online subscriptions. The out-of-town subscribers pay one third less of what locals pay. Online subscribers should get a break in price since we are saving the Empire paper, ink and time as well as helping the environment by not making more garbage.

For people who have a hard time reading the paper - reading it online is much easier because you can increase the text size. Myself, and many others, currently have or had a subscription where the papers went in the trash because we always read it online. The only thing I saved was the Wednesday advertisements and the TV guide (though that can be gotten online as well).

So here sits a stack of papers that are just a waste and more garbage.
