    I work for a newspaper publisher so I get mine free every day at work. That's about the only advantage to working there nowadays (SIGH).

    Yes we subscribe to the local ..Sentinel .. USA Today..and New York Times...
    I read them vs the internet...like to get the view points of the reporters first hand...
    Not everybody has internet access..even though they have a computer...we need to keep the old ways alive..written books, newspapers..etc...if electronic gadgets go awry..communications would be non-existant...scary thought..

    Yes I still read the paper versions of the news, as well as the online ones.  I am a voratious reader and frequently send in a comment, fortunately for me most of my remarks are published. 
    I find it very rewarding that a lot of people read my missives and respond.

    yes, I get the NH Sunday news. I love to peruse it over coffee on lazy Sunday mornings and when it's read, I tackle the crossword puzzle.

    Yes, we subscribe to one of the local newspapers in the area.  Still prefer to newpapers over reading news on the web as it covers all the international, national, local events, etc  instead of having to search all of the topics individually on search engines and wasting time. Thanks for opening up this topic.  Also,  alot of people that worked for the newspapers have been layed off due to customer loss of interest in buying newspapers.  Maybe there could be a happy medium.

    Yes. Mostly to keep up with current events (good and bad) and checking for the "unusual." And, yes, I like the paper versions--ads and all (can throw them out)--esp Sun, as opposed to on-line reading
