The Glen Rose Reporter is now accessible ‘round the globe.

Last week, Reporter Publisher Rochelle Stidham announced that the newspaper’s online companion went live on the Internet, ushering in a new era for how the publication’s readers can access local news.

“We are pleased to announce the upstart of our newspaper’s newest outlet for local news, information and more,” said Stidham. “Our goal is to be the best source for local news and advertising by providing an online edition, our readers will have access to late-breaking news, 24-hours-a-day.”

Accessible at www.theglenrosereporter.com, the Web site allows the newspaper’s staff to provide breaking news alerts and access to much more than what appears in the weekly print edition, including headlines from the Associated Press.

Users of the Web site will be required to register and create a member ID and password before accessing complete news online. There is no charge, and absolutely no gimmicks to become a registered user of TheGlenRoseReporter.com. Simply log on and fill out the form to begin making the newspaper’s Web site a part of your daily routine.

The Reporter’s staff will routinely update the Web site with breaking news, obituaries, sports scores, public meeting notices and more, allowing our readers to stay informed in advance of the weekly print edition being published.

Other easy-to-use tools available online include access to a community calendar where local organizations and clubs can easily add their announcements and upcoming event details. Adding an event is also free of charge. The Reporter’s staff encourages all area clubs, organizations and other groups to access the Web site and post their event’s details in the community calender, listed under “My Community” on the homepage.

Web users may also submit stories and upload photos from local events to share with their neighbors at the newspaper’s new online companion.

The user-friendly Web site also allows readers to submit letters to the editor, as well as wedding, engagement and birth announcements. See “My Services” on the homepage and click “Online Forms.”

Readers will also find links to local and area advertisers‚ organizational Web sites, classifieds and legal notices, and real estate listings.

Health news and automotive reviews are also a part of the Reporter’s new Web site, as well as local weather forecasts and a stock market ticker.
