While knowledge of current events gives you something to talk about at parties, knowledge of future events puts you on the fast track to a gruelling career writing fortune-cookie messages. Revel in the present with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a one-year subscription to the electronic edition of The Kingston Whig-Standard (a $54.10 value, including HST).
The Whig-Standard ’s e-edition delivers the newspaper’s complete coverage of local, national, and world news to subscribers' designated email inboxes each morning Monday–Saturday. The virtual paper, an exact digital replica of the ink-printed version, fills readers' visual fields with a surfeit of local and international news, sports scores, and real-estate listings, all without emptying forests of their leafy inhabitants or depleting strategic ink reserves. Subscribers can stay abreast of trends in driving and decorating with weekly sections devoted to homes and autos or broaden their interests with more than 40 other special sections throughout the year. The e-edition's easy-to-use customization tools let readers zoom in for larger print or for closer photo gazing, establish RSS feeds, and share favourite stories via social media or town crier. The option to download, save, and print individual pages or the whole paper allows for offline reading, tactile crossword solving, and refrigerator comics posting.
Since 1926, the Kingston Whig-Standard has regaled its readers with the latest happenings in their community and around the world. The skilled writers of Canada’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper craft news and opinion pieces, as well as reviews of neighbourhood restaurants, health updates, and consumer advice, all complemented by striking photography and design. The paper’s sports coverage runs the gamut from high-school teams to local hockey to professional hockey, baseball, and snipe-hunting teams.
