Great to get The Herald in print and online

I get The Herald delivered daily, as I have for years, along with the Seattle Times, because I have to know what is going on up here and not just down there. And I kept the paper delivery because I considered the online version less than optimal.

I got your email message about the snow possibly making delivery delayed or absent. So I decided to explore the newly updated online “print” version.

The print version shows the pages just as they are printed, so no need to winnow out older articles and wait for items to load. But in the old version, I had trouble getting the pages at the print size I needed to read well. But the new version is: wow. Once I figured it out, it was easy to get the full page, very legible, and then get to the next page or the end of an article with just a click. Bravo!

Then, as a bonus, my neighbors came over to shovel my driveway for me. They found my actual paper Herald under 8 inches of snow in the driveway. It was in plastic and secured so carefully by the delivery staff that it was completely dry.

I know it is a challenging time for newspapers, as many people now think they get “news” from social media, not realizing that vehicle is unvetted, if not outright fake. I want you to stay around, so I have already donated to the fund. Thanks for being there, and thanks for the great service!
