They added a lot of Ravens coverage a few years ago, apparently, which is something, but, apart from that, the CC Times is something that I can't imagine would interest too many people for free -- let alone behind a pay wall. Part of it is because it's a really really local paper in a small city (Really almost a suburb of the suburbs), but I live in a similar area in southern Pennsylvania these days and the local paper up here does a much better job. Not a great job, mind you, but the local paper up here at least gets all the relevant "big" local news, such as it is -- new shop openings, crime, etc..
I remember growing up having a family friend who knew someone who worked for the Times saying they categorically refused to cover stories that seemed negative or that some people would find disturbing, even if it was the biggest stuff going on in the area. They cited some guy who hung himself as an example of things that happened and would never make the paper.
I don't know, maybe there is someone, somewhere out there, who will pay for the Carroll County Times, but it won't be anyone I know. A paper like the Baltimore Sun going behind a pay wall is annoying, the Carroll County Times going behind one is just funny.
There are way too many credible sources of news, so no need to pay for this liberal, leftist dribble!!
Truth is... it would almost be worth the price of admission just to see which posters here are foolish enough to pay for the new on-line program.
Guess I'll never know.

Terrible idea unless their goal was to drive away their remaining readers. bye sunpaper...
It appears the digital subscription experiment has ended. The free market prevailed
The experiment continues here. But I still think the free market prevailed.
