What do I get as a Premium Member?

The news is important. It’s something that impacts our lives every day. Staying informed is a priority to us all.

As a Premium Member, you get access to all of our content, old and new. You get the news you care about. You’ll know all about what’s happening with the schools, the military, the city, and more.

Your news is important to you, and it’s important to us to bring you quality journalism seven days a week.

But our site isn’t just about the news. It’s about our entire community. It’s about bringing people together, and it’s about everything that happens, from the smallest to the biggest things.

Premium Membership means so much more than just news. Here’s what our Premium Members receive:


As a premium member you get complete access to all of the daily news and features that we print. You can read the news at your leisure, download the pages, and keep the stories that are important to you.

We do not include the Sunday Color Comics, USA Weekend, or advertising inserts in the iPaper due to licensing restrictions

Create Social Groups

Any registered user can join a social group, but only Premium Members can create groups for their church, club, or general discussions.

Social groups are a great way to discuss important events and topics, connect with other members of the community, or just share ideas.

Multimedia Gallery

As a Premium Member, you can still watch our exclusive videos up to one year
old, but even better, you can download them to keep forever.

Premium Access

Get complete unrestricted access to all of our premium stories, obituaries, letters to the editor, On Your Mind and more.

Every day we deliver valuable news about our community, from schools to military, to city issues, and as a premium member, you get access to our best stories, the stories that effect you.

Unrestricted Archive Access

Get unlimited access to all of our archives. Any story older than 14 days is
archived, but as a Premium Member, you can still read them all.

Additional Reader Reward Points

Every member of our website can earn Reader Reward points by commenting on
stories, uploading videos and photos, adding events to our calendar, and
more. Only Premium Members gain extra Reader Reward points every month just
for being a member. Those points can be redeemed for great gift cards on our
site from a wide variety of local businesses.
