Today it's $1

Sun Media's new 3-in-1 Northumberland Today newspaper, launched yesterday at $1.25, was reduced to $1 today.

Negative feedback from readers of the former Port Hope Evening Guide, Cobourg Daily Star and Colborne Chronicle was immediate.

A couple of retailers said they also complained about $1.25.

Whatever, readers and retailers are content with $1.

Meanwhile, people in the boonies are paying $1.58, including tax, for the Sun weekdays, $1.75 for the Globe and $1.50 for the Star.
