Whether on paper or online, the Beacon is there for you

With the launch of our new, user-friendly website, Beacon readers have several ways to keep abreast of the community news that affects their daily lives.
As always, the Beacon newspaper is free at racks and stacks throughout the city and surrounding areas. Many of our readers enjoy picking it up when they go out for their morning cup of coffee or run their chores.
Where carriers are available, readers can have the paper delivered directly to their doorstep. It's still free, but we encourage readers to tip their carriers, most of whom are learning responsibility and earning money on their first-ever job.
Readers who prefer to receive their newspaper in the mail are welcome to go that route. Cost is $80 per year, which just covers the cost of postage. Six-month and two-year subscriptions also are available.
Finally, readers who prefer to access their community news online can now enjoy the Beacon's new website, designed with a clean, easy-to-read look, and updated daily, at mukilteobeacon.com.
Readers are invited to try it out for free for one month. After that, it's a low $2.95 per month – about a dime a day – to keep abreast of the news that affects your lives, 24/7, from City Hall to the Police Beat to the business community, schools, youth sports and more.
"We're pleased with the new, modern look of our website, and we hope our readers are, too," Publisher Paul Archipley said. "Whether you prefer to get your news on paper or digitally, you're giving yourself the gift of knowledge about your neighbors, your city, your community.
"Social media may be fun, but newspapers are still the most reliable way to find the facts – by far.
"They're also an ideal way for advertisers to reach their customers. Both in the papers and online, companies can capture the attention of an audience that has real spending power. We welcome suggestions and ideas from readers and advertisers alike."
No matter what your preference, the Beacon is there, bringing you the most comprehensive, thorough coverage of the news that affects #your# world.
