    Raising rates Again? It’s been quite a number of years since the last increase. If you lose the local press, a community will lose an irreplaceable news source.

      The Times-News will go the route of many, many other dailies. It will become an online subscription service only. No physical paper.>

    Well if people can spend 4.99 for a pint of ice cream the paper is a bargain. One town I know has 1 paper a week. The CTNews is a blessing especially to those who do not have a computer. Yes there are people who don’t. I am concerned that not only our paper but many papers will go like the Dinosaur. Very sad.
