A message on reads: The Northeast Times Web site has joined the online family. Please visit to catch the latest online version of the Northeast Times. Northeast Times archives up to and including the issue of Jan. 8, 2009 remain on our Web site. A visit to’s My Community page yields a cluttered blog…and the Northeast Times is way at the bottom! Don’t bother clicking on the “more news” link, you’ll only get a “Page Not Found” message. It appears only a small percentage of the paper is online.

Once again, Northeast news has been pushed to the bottom.
