The Suburban Journals have announced that the newspaper will charge for subscriptions starting next month. The cost will be modest — about $20 a year — but it is a change that will have some callers to Town Talk squawking.
For the City, the change is generally a welcome one. Copies of the several print editions of the Sub Journal thrown here tend to end up in vacant lots, in front of empty buildings, and stuffed into dumpsters (often unread, because unsolicited). Still, free local news delivered reliably to your front door each week is a sad thing to lose.
I will be buying a subscription.
