Website convenient way to read the news

ALAN Brownbill has headed to the Sunshine Coast Daily website every couple of days for a couple of years now.

He still likes to get his Saturday print edition but enjoys the convenience of going online during the week.

"I like reading about all the local issues," he said.

"I don't think we need international or national stuff on there.

"I'm only interested in international stories if they impact on local people.

"But the website is like the new print way of getting local stories.

"I like a broad range of content. I like reading about local politics and sport."

Mr Brownbill, of Alexandra Headland, said he used to enjoy engaging in the online debate.

"There are a lot of other people on there expressing their points of view - I do sometimes get sick of reading the ones on the extreme left though," he quipped.

He thinks the website covers local opinions, event listings, human interest, local news and breaking news particularly well.

While he doesn't always agree with the Daily's columnist Bill Hoffman, he said he sometimes raised some fair points but that he followed some other writers and columnists on the website.

"I met Kathy Sundstrom just the other week on the dive to the HMAS Brisbane," Mr Brownbill said.

"I only met her briefly but I read her columns and follow some of the other writers."
