Do you remember the days when you used to have to pay for home delivery for your newspaper? Or when you had to feed coins into a vending box to get your news?
Things are very different now – just one click or tap of a screen and you’ve got news and information right at your fingertips. People have gotten used to having everything free on the internet, and it’s caused huge problems for media companies. Some do have a good advertiser base, but often those sites are cluttered and hard to read, and load slowly.
We want to offer a good experience for our readers, most of whom read 70 West Sentinel on mobile devices, so we limit our advertising space, and that limits the resources we have available to cover the news.
70 West Sentinel strives to provide complete and unbiased coverage of news, events and issues of importance to Western St. Charles County – particularly the cities of O’Fallon, Lake Saint Louis and Wentzville. We love our communities and we love the work, but there’s a lot to cover, and we’re spread pretty thin. Would you consider spending just $5 a month – the cost of a coffee and donut – to support our work?
That’s all it costs for a voluntary subscription. Just select a monthly or yearly subscription and click the link to subscribe. (Voluntary subscriptions are not tax-deductible.)
It’s less than the cost of a Netflix subscription, and you’ll be helping to ensure the availability of your favorite 70 West Sentinel features: objective news and community information like upcoming events, police blotters, restaurant inspections and more!
