Barriere's Star/Journal printed edition subscribers also have easy access to our online edition

To the editor;

In a recent editorial the on-line version of the newspaper was discussed.  Being interested in this concept, and traveling quite a bit – I think that it would be great to have this option.

I am, however, a lover of the physical item – flipping the pages, taking the news with me to the back yard or porch to enjoy with my morning coffee.

I am wondering, therefore, if those of us who prefer to purchase the paper are able to access the on-line version when we are ‘out of town’ and need to see the news.

Thank you.
