The Courier’s website,, is freshly redesigned and temporarily offering unlimited free access.

The new site’s clean, modern layout emphasizes local news, sports and features that you can’t get anywhere else, over Associated Press content.

Because most readers now visit on smartphones and tablets, the updated website is more mobile-friendly. It should load faster and be easier to read on smaller screens.

Look for an increase in multimedia offerings like photos, videos and podcasts. That also means new opportunities for advertisers.

Amid all the changes, local favorites like the Courier Cam, the docket, and flooding information will always be available.

The new website was created by Findlay Digital Design, the internet arm of Findlay Publishing Co.
