UPDATE: We've added even more online destinations to the Stuff To Do page -- in case you need some amusement, education, virtual travel or just a reason to stay inside where it's cooler.
She may not make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but the Sistersville Ferry handles the run from Sistersville to Fly, Ohio, and back, just fine! The ferry is slated to resume operations Thursday, July 2.
We've put our Victory Garden: Then and Now series from digital Issue 7 under the All-Access page. Click on the first link to go directly to the page or detour to All-Access first. 🙂 The posts contain live links to help you with your research on that garden you want / need to start, just in case.
We here at The INNformer have a few changes in store for you!
Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.
First is the name change. We will now be known as the Mid Ohio Valley Informer. The new name stems from our expanded coverage as well as making it easier to remember for the second change: this website where we are The MOV Informer.
As you should realize by now, we're not a typical newspaper. Consequently this won't be a typical newspaper website. We currently have no plans to post stories here ... or even breaking news. However, we DO post breaking news on our INNformer Facebook page -- and those posts are fed here [see sidebar at right on our homepage if you're on a desktop/laptop. For tablets and phones, scroll down, down, down. To get there from here, click on HOME or in the black menu bar above.]
This website will primarily function as a repository of our print editions -- all the way back to Volume 1 Issue 1. While there is some free content -- and we do plan to add to that over time -- we do charge a small annual fee to park here, put your feet up and read our paper. The fee is $25 a year or a lifetime fee of $100. There is no charge to keep those feet up and work through our 7 daily crossword puzzles or send a link of your work published in an Arts Supplement to family and friends worldwide. Those may be viewed at any time without a "parking fee."
In one respect we are following the digital first mantra of other publications, but with our own unusual twist. The editions are typically posted after being sent to the printer Wednesday evening. Thus with your subscription you may read the paper before it even runs on the press.
Feel free to let us know what else you would like to see here. Perhaps a form to fill out for events to be listed in our print edition event calendar? An actual event calendar? Community forums? A job board? Post a comment below or send an email to web dot movinformer at gmail dot com or to support at movinformer dot com. In a probably futile effort to avoid spam, please remove spaces and replace "dot" and "at" with the appropriate symbols.
