A letter from the publisher

Dear readers,

For more than 150 years The Suffolk Times has prided itself on being your trusted source for local news.
Over the last 10 years, the way we deliver that news has changed greatly. We have spent significant time trying to find a balance in how to best serve our readers in a new digital age.
It is with great pleasure that we announce our recent decision to make our website free for all to enjoy.
It’s a simple fact that you, our readers, have changed the way you consume news. While you have remained loyal to our weekly print product, we understand there is a daily need to keep up with what is going on in our constantly evolving communities.
That’s why we are making a strong commitment to expand our presence on the web. We recently began publishing daily newsletters that serve as mini-newspapers for our online readership to enjoy.
We’ve also revamped our commenting and social networking software to make our site more interactive, so you, too, can share your voice with the community. We are planning many more updates and improvements in the coming weeks.
Now by giving you the ability to access our sites free of charge, we hope you continue to enjoy The Suffolk Times in ways never before possible.
We look forward to being your trusted source for local news for the next 150 years and beyond.

Andrew Olsen, Publisher
