I don't get our local newspaper delivered. My mailbox is down at the foot of the mountain and that's where they would put the newspaper box. So I would have to go down to get it or wait until I leave for work .I stop at a Sheetz convenient store every morning before work and buy it so I know it will be dry. The newspaper boxes are open on the front.

It cost 50 cents through the week and the weekend paper is $1.25. I believe that's a fair price. They rely heavily on advertising to help cover costs.

I get my news online. I have subscriptions to a couple of prominent sources that cost less in sum than the cost of a newspaper.

I’m also sensitive to the paper waste issue.

The only paper I get is a neighborhood newspaper that comes once a week through the mail. It tells about happenings around my town and surrounding areas. It’s free but you have to sign up to receive it.
