Check out new 'Green Edition' of PO Independent

The Port Orchard Independent is launching an initiative that will enhance our readers’ experience online.Through the “Green Editions,” you can now access our community newspaper anytime, anywhere on our website.

The full print edition of the Independent is available on the web as soon as the paper hits the streets every Friday. Online readers can now flip through the Independent’s pages just like those who enjoy reading the newspaper in a hard-copy format.

The Green Edition includes access to all of our special sections, stories, photos, graphics, ads and classifieds. Pages will automatically link URLs found in the text and advertising. Readers can also find special offers at their local retailers by zooming in on display and classified advertisements.

Starting with September 2011, you can look through archived papers for that story you forgot to clip out of the print edition. You can print a full page, partial page, or download the entire document. You can also download the paper to a Kindle or other electronic reader.

Our new product is supported by all standard web browsers and can be accessed 24/7, free of charge.

To view the electronic pages, go to and click on Green Editions on the navigation bar.

We hope this new product will provide additional content for our online readers. We are excited to be continually evolving how we present the news to our communities.
