When LSJ first said it was charging for the online news I gave the same comment then as I am now.

Why would you charge for the same news I can get free?

If you had anyone in your organization that could think out of the box you would come up with a way for readers to like reading your newspaper. Krogers gives us points for cheaper gas when we shop at there store. Texas roadhouse gives free appetizers when we go to there website. If LSJ had a way to encourage people to read there news you would make more money than anyone.

So the best way LSJ can find to stay a float is to charge more money for the news I get free elsewhere???
Run a contest and ask your current readers what little you my now have and ask them what LSJ could do to encourage people to read there news!!

Think out of the box encourage people not discourage people.
