If The Herald wants me to read their print edition, this is the only way it will happen

From The Herald's web site:
The Herald, Johnston County’s oldest and largest community newspaper, is expanding its distribution to reach more homes in the county.

Starting March 5, The Herald will switch from paid to free home delivery and will increase its distribution from nearly 14,000 to about 47,000 copies. At the same time, the newspaper will end its twice-weekly printing cycle and will begin publishing once a week on Wednesday.

With these changes, The Herald — and its advertisers — will reach about 75 percent of all single-family homes in the county.

The Herald still owes the ex-wife and I about $125 for delivering their rag back in 2001 (we stopped delivering after just one month since we were getting hosed financially and the psycho ex would not pay attention sufficiently to her route. When she quit, the Herald refused to pay the rest of the money owed to us) so I refuse to pay for a subscription. That is just plain bad business. They refused to pay $125 that they legitimately owed and in turn lost many times more than that in subscription fees. Stupid.
