I can't take it anymore. Content keeps dwindling and now it doesn't get delivered till after I go to work. Is there an alternative to this monopoly?

Content is dwindling? Gee, don't you like reading about the "First Time Daddy" articles? How about Reporter C.P. writing about herself with her advanced degrees, her vacations and other utter nonsense? How many times does she use the word I or I'm in an article? How about the publisher and editor writing about their vacations? Not Interesting?
Unless you let these folks know what you want nothing will ever change. Look at the size of the Sunday paper. Do you like paying for that content? If so keep paying if not drop it.

When there's zero local completion they will never be pressed to provide the best product. They can just manipulate pricing based on subscribers to maintain their profits.
The OD is a waste

The OD is nohing more that 6 pages of advertisements. donna wants you to pay to read people's advertisements. They have no news, they copy and paste from the OD. They do like to report every DWI arrest unless it is her son and then it gets covered up.

Just an interesting tidbit. The OD is the most expensive Gannet newspaper to advertise in when you break down cost over readership.

Utica 34, the OD has not been a Gannett newspaper for several years now.

My mistake. I have been out of the area since 2006 and doing a little research it appears it hasn't been with gannet since 07. Sorry. I will say however that when I was buying advertising through the paper from 03-06 what I posted was true.

Utica Observer-Dispatch’s new food magazine Entree adds $1.00 per month to subscribers bills! Not a good deal at all.

The Utica Phoenix does a great job and actually prints guest columns without editing out the truth.
The bias in the OD is blatant, how can there be any objectivity in the reporting when their is such a lovefest for the current CE. He has brought them oin's advertising dollars, so they have to spin in one direction only.
