All web readers given access to obituaries
Effective immediately, The Gazette has opened access to obituaries on gazettextra.com to all visitors.
A website redesign unveiled Tuesday limits access to some stories and photos to subscribers only. Initially, obituaries were included in that restricted content.
After hearing from customers and after further review, Gazette management decided that limiting access to obituaries was inappropriate. Families pay to have obituaries published in The Gazette and posted on gazettextra.com, so Gazette managers decided they should be open to all visitors to the site.
