Welcome to the new ...
Saugeen Times, Kincardine Times & The Walkerton News
We're independent and we're green!
In a time and place where the amalgamation of 'newsprint' resources seems to be prevalent, we wanted to establish a local, alternative, objective news source that would be available to everyone.
We are also appreciative that much of the area's population travels to warmer climes during the winter. Therefore, this news source has been designed to keep them abreast of 'happenings at home' while they are away. So, tune in Snowbirds!
Just as the New York Times and CNN have seen their on-line popularity soar, the Saugeen Times, Kincardine Times & The Walkerton News have become part of that explosive trend in electronic news media.
The 'paper' has been designed for you, the reader, who desires both a current and in-depth look at local news as well as a forum where your views can be expressed (see Letters to the Editor).We are also going to delve into the sciences, technology, education and the environment with guest columns by various experts.
Living on the Great Lakes also gives us the advantage of a rich heritage in history and marine folklore, so there will be 'tales from the deep' and 'Harbour Lights' throughout the summer months.
The Saugeen Times, Kincardine & The Walkerton News are being offered free to our readership thanks to the support of local advertisers. Also, unlike print, the electronic media has no geographic boundaries, therefore, those placing classified ads will reach the widest markets possible
We are local and we want to make a difference!
With the area we feel that this is entirely possible. We have attempted to cover those topics in which people have expressed they would have an interest. However, if YOU have any suggestions or would like to see coverage in an area that we may have overlooked, please email us .

Tips for Reading our online news source
The screen is divided into three frames, the Banner, the Contents and the Main frame as shown below.
The Banner is constant except for ads in each 'edition'.
There are prominent coloured buttons that can be used at any time to get back to the 'feature frame'. It looks like one of the buttons above and is in the Banner frame. The Contents frame holds all the categories that the reader can access. If any one of these is selected what's 'behind it' is put into the main frame. The idea behind this simple layout is to make all the portions of the Saugeen, Kincardine Times & The Walkerton News versions accessible at all times as well as World News from CCNews.
Sometimes we produce an index on a page to help the user navigate from a long list of options to where they want to go. Once you click the index item, you can always get back to where you came from by using the back button, but sometimes we assist you with an orange arrow
We put the Home Buttons at the bottom of all our web pages so that if you read to the end, you don't have to move your mouse much to get back quickly. You can always use the Banner Home Button, however.
All the web pages that we control from our sites will appear inside the Main frame. If you perform successive links to web sites that are linked to by some of our customers or areas of interest, you may find a page coming up not in the Main frame. You can always get back to us by using the back arrow or device in your browser.
Enjoy your reading.
