    Why bother? The Sentinel is drivel anyway…..a clone of WFTV and the other sensational local stories.
    I can get local news every half hour on the radio, get national news on any number of radio, television or news outlets.

    Who needs ‘em?

      There are some ways to bypass the limit, such as using another browser or installing a Firefox addon. Read the following article. I think you’ll find it enlightening.

    I used the sentinel web site regularly and supported their advertisers as well… Not anymore! WAY to many free site’s to use.. Even if they go back to being free they have lost my loyalty forever… Good Luck with the whole charging thing….

    What a joke……no way in hell I am paying to view their site. I really enjoyed having access no longer living in Orlando but I feel its ridiculous that they are charging to view online.
