Following Senior Writer Martin L. Cahn’s column about our revamped website on Friday, we thought we’d remind everyone that the last day to take advantage of free access to all our online content ends this Friday, Feb. 1.

We also want to assure everyone that just because we’re touting our new website doesn’t mean we’re leaving print behind in any way. The Chronicle-Independent and its precursors date back to the late 1800s and we have every intention to keep printing editions of the newspaper for years to come.

Every Tuesday and Friday, we bring you the real news of Kershaw County -- city council, county council, school board and other government news; feature stories about your neighbors and favorite places in our diverse communities; the best sports coverage any community newspaper could offer; business news; diverse opinions; and so much more. We update our website accordingly, in a new format featuring more and better photographs along with videos and audio clips.

There may come a day when we publish news online first, but that day is not here yet.

So, for those of you who prefer the feel of newsprint and the smell of ink (and occasional smears on your fingers), the C-I’s newspaper is here to stay. And, for those of you who like the multimedia interactivity of a website -- whether on your desktop, laptop or mobile device -- we’re here for you, too.

We have 16 different subscription packages to choose from, from print subscriptions that provide you free access to the website to online-only subscriptions for those of you who wish to be paper-free. At the top of this or any page here on the website, click on Subscribe at the very top right of the screen to check them out, or call us at (803) 432-6157. Our office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
