Is WickedLocalNewton, the online version of Newton TAB, now behind a paywall? I just tried clicking on a story and got a pop-up asking me to subscribe for the content (screenshot attached). If this is true, it would be a major shift for the publication, which, as a free community paper and website for decades, had relied mostly on advertising revenue. 

Of course, issues with both the Gatehouse business model and the news model, in general, are well documented. 

Is the TAB content worth $80/ year for you? Is anyone else getting the same paywall pop-up? Also, will this translate into a subscription model for the print publication?
