Loss of free online access upsets former resident

As a former Maui resident, having lived and worked on Maui for more than 15 years, I am also very upset with The Maui News limiting access to online local news.

Many of the stories and features have involved prior clients/friends who make Maui the greatest. I can’t believe the Cameron family (prior owner of this paper) would have pulled this stunt for the few additional dollars it might generate. I also can’t believe that advertisers are going along with this ploy, as many of us are return visitors who will leave the website disenchanted.

I ask that The Maui News reconsider.
