Why the free offer now? Because tighter security measures for the Democratic National Convention could, at times, delay the delivery of the printed Observer.
Our offices are within blocks of the convention. That’s great for news coverage. But we’ve also learned that our delivery trucks will be slowed by security checkpoints next Tuesday through Friday. As a result, some papers may arrive later than usual those days.
We apologize for this inconvenience. As a help, we are offering all readers free access to our printed newspaper, via the Web.
The free access remains in effect daily through Friday. (To report e-edition problems, please call 704-358-5980.)
When you link to the e-edition, you will read the latest possible edition of the newspaper. This could be especially helpful during DNC week because much of the convention will unfold after our early edition deadlines.
So, if either the paper or the news is late, we hope this helps.
