Now Offering Early Notification to Pike County Times Readers

ZEBULON - Pike County Times is undergoing some changes for the first time in several years. Pike County Times is still going to remain FREE as it has been since 2006 when I began reporting on the Pike County Commission, and the look of the newspaper (designed by Danny Shumate from CGA Comp - 706-741-5929) will remain the same, but Pike County Times is no longer posting links to breaking news stories on Facebook or Twitter.

Instead, Pike County Times is asking readers to help support the time poured into of the articles with a yearly donation of $25 that will enable you to receive breaking news stories by email or text message as soon as those articles go online. Readers are welcome to donate more toward the ongoing monthly expenses of Pike County's only FREE online newspaper if you would like.

There is no set number of texts that will go out on a weekly or monthly basis, but you will receive a notification by text or email when these articles go online. However, please understand that there is no set time of the day when you will receive my notification so it may be early in the morning, during the day or late at night--though I usually don't post after midnight!

If you would like to support Pike County Times.com with your donation of $25 for this early notification service, please notify me at editor@pikecountytimes.com so I can email a Paypal notice to you, send a regular emailed invoice to you (also available for download by clicking here or you can click on the donate button below and type early notification on the donation line as well as your cellular number for texts or your email. To keep operating costs low, Pike County Times only accepts PayPal, check, and cash or money order-with a written receipt given to the donor. (You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay through PayPal.)

Any donations above the amount of the $25 will help with the day to day costs of Pike County’s only FREE online newspaper. Thank you for your encouragement and support!
