I cancelled my subscription to the OD and I will not pay to read their online articles, but they have every right to charge for use of their web-site. They are a privately owned business and have no obligation to pass along info to you for free.

Contact the City of Utica to get your information. The City of Utica has a website...why can't you go there? Complain to them if you do not get the info you need.

If the OD continues in the same direction, they won't be around in a few years anyways.

Free sources of news: UPD, NHPD, DA Facebook pages, WKTV.com , WIBX.com , Uticaphoenix.net , UCTangerine.com , etc.

Loading with annoying advertisements and then charging online subscribers feels like double dipping

Exactly what i posted, you notice a criminals face on the OD for a second then they block it. You must pay to see it. Good move OD, you suck.
