Okay - well, guess I've been busy, but just noticed that the 4-week subscription price for the Express News has jumped to $35!!

Reckon it's time to switch to the Austin American-Statesman. Our E/N was soaked last Sunday, so I searched all over here in NB for a dry copy for my better half. The AAS was in abundance, but all the local places were telling me that they only get like 4-6 copies of the E/N any more. Guess they've given up on the New Braunfels market.

That's interesting. I saw a ton of Express News papers at an HEB in San Marcos, but it was on a Sunday. We also get local San Antonio channels, so maybe San Marcos sees itself as more in between the two metros even though it's officially a part of one.

Yeah - we used to see a lot of them here, as well - but obviously, something has changed. And the wet paper replacement hunt was just last week - maybe I should've gone to San Marcos to get it!

The Express News is a lost cause IMHO. Just recycles stories carried by the news services and no hard journalism. That is why I read the New York Tines. So few real newspapers left.

And the online version uses Google WAY too much. Let the reporters hit the street and take their own pictures instead of composing their stories at the computer.

Not going to join in on the thread hi-jack discussion about the quality of reporters or local news, but I will say that I stopped subscribing to the Express News newspaper years ago. It is just too much money to pay for what they offer now.

Default Yep,

The computer home page has settings for the New York Times as the home page.

Have you looked at some of their other subscription options? You can get the All Digital access for $2.50/week. It gives you access to ExpressNews.com, which includes pretty much of all the content, including online versions of the puzzles. It is a much better site than mysa.com, because it doesn't have ads and all the crap content like "Top 10 this" and "Top 20 that." It is still missing things like comics and some of the syndicated things like Dear Abby, but you can view those with the e-edition replica of the physical paper. If you want the Sunday coupons, they also have Sunday and Wednesday delivery for $3.50/wk which also includes the 7 day All Digital access. It seems that the with the rate at which they are increasing the home delivery prices, they are pushing everyone to digital access only.

Default But...but...they keep winning awards. Doh!

The San Antonio Express-News won first place Sunday at the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors Convention for the newspapers in-depth coverage of the environmental effects of fracking in the Eagle Ford Shale.
Reporters Jennifer Hiller and John Tedesco and database editor Joseph Kokenge shared top honors for "Up in Flames." The multi-part series examined the impact of natural gas burned and wasted by companies drilling in the Eagle Ford Shale.
Kevin Armstrong, who judged the series, said it "represents the best journalism has to offer."
