Air tour thrills kids of all ages

     Some would say it’s the sound of the powerful engines, others would say it’s that butterfly feeling you get in your stomach when taking off, while still others might say it’s the giddy childlike feeling you get whenever you’re around one…but whatever it is, airplanes definitely invoke a youthful reaction for most of us “grown-ups.”

     On the morning of Thursday, July 16, a small crowd began to gather at the Kamiah airport in expectation of each colorful plane that would land on the soft green grass. One by one they began to circle and then approach the landing strip while airplane enthusiasts of all ages gazed upwards to watch their descent.

Progress offering online subscriptions

     The Clearwater Progress is pleased to offer a new choice in reading the local news. The Progress is now offering online newspaper subscriptions.

     So if you live in Tahiti or Texas and want to keep up on the news of the Clearwater Valley, it’s only a couple clicks away. 

     For the past six months the Progress has been looking at ways to provide better service to subscribers who live outside our immediate area. A number of readers have expressed a desire to receive the paper faster than what the Postal Service can provide.

     The new online subscription option is the solution to those requests. In brief, the entire newspaper—just as it appears in the print version—will be viewable online for those who purchase an online subscription. Well, there will be one noticeable difference. Subscribers to the online paper won’t have to wash any ink off their fingers.

     Online subscriptions include access to optimized pdf files of The Clearwater Progress print version, posted on our website www.clearwaterprogress.com that can be enlarged to the size that fits the reader’s eyesight.

     The online version of the paper will be viewable on Thursday morning, just as the print version is provided to local postal boxes on Thursday. In fact, thanks to the marvel of technology, online viewers, depending on when they log in, may be able to read the week’s news before all of the local papers hit mailboxes.

     Subscribers to this new service will have full access to our entire website. They will be able to scroll through the paper page by page online, viewing all the news as well as the advertisements. Online subscribers will access our website via a secure password. We will also be archiving our pages so if subscribers miss an article they can always go back and find it.

     Non-subscribers will have limited access to postings on our website, such as our real estate guide, Service Directory, Business Profile and brief news postings.

     Instead of repackaging the paper in some form on the website, which can be difficult for readers to find their way around and tends to be less effective for advertising, we feel it is most beneficial for readers and advertisers to post the digital newspaper pages on our website in sequential order.

     This method gives added value to advertisers because their ad remains right next to the news copy for people to see, instead of being lost in a sea of website tab options.

     Anyone is welcome to subscribe to this service. We recognize that some people prefer to read news on a computer just as some love doing so in their favorite chair in the living room, the kitchen table, or the bathroom.

     In addition to either online and print subscription options, readers may also choose to have both.

     Those who have purchased subscriptions to our print edition will continue to receive the paper until it expires. If they wish to renew the paper version, they can do so. Or, readers may choose to purchase an online subscription instead.

     Online subscription rates are $16 for six months and $27 for one year. For more information, click on Online Subscription Plans on the left side of the screen.
