When linking to a story behind a paywall, how about providing enough information for us to at least get the gist of the story?

Well, they didn't until a few weeks ago. They bought Nat Sherman (which, if you aren't familiar, makes cigars and fancy cigarettes). Their cigars are Dominican, but they make cigarettes in a facility near PTI. I'm paywalled out of the the Biz Journal, but I take it they're opting to keep that facility open, so that's a good thing!

Here's the acquisition release:

Paywall huh? So that's what it's called.
Yeah, I'm paywalled too but, who knew there was another tobacco producer in Gboro.

Yep: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paywall


I didn't know Nat Sherman had a factory in G'boro either. of course, it only employs 30 people, so there are probably lots of small places like that aren't widely known.

Just happen to think about this. You can bypass pay walls by going into incognito mode if you have Google Chrome, delete cookies or use multiple different web browsers

Incognito mode works for me. I reached my monthly limit on a news site, went into incognito mode and was able to see the article. If you are using other browsers like Safari, its called private browsing mode. These modes tell websites you are a new user which means no pay wall ever.

The Triad Business Journal is another story. While you can see many articles for free, some articles you have to have a subscription to see and typically they are articles of great interest such as those related to downtown development projects. They tease you with headlines. You can't get around that. I don't read the Business Journal on a regular basis so im certainly not going to purchase a subscription just to read one or two interesting articles a month. At one time you could go to a book store like Barnes and Noble and buy weekly issues off the rack or get them from newspaper vending machines in the downtown area but no longer. They want to force you into a long term subscription. They lose money when people like myself purchase by the issue. Not to mention you could grab more than one paper from the vending machine an issue news paper companies have not resolved because of the way the vending machines are designed. Its like paying 75 cent for a snack in a vending machine and being able to get as many snacks as you want for free once its open. I have access to other peoples business journal papers if there is something I want to read.
