Editorial, opinion

You can get Mid Rivers in your mailbox. Homes, condominiums, apartments and businesses in St. Charles County can get the paper delivered for free simply by requesting it. You can go to or mail in the subscription form found in any copy of the paper. 

If you already received this paper in your mailbox, check the front cover to make sure you are subscribed. If your name is on the mailing label (rather than the words “Current Resident”), then your subscription is active. If the label reads Current Resident, then you still need to subscribe in order to receive the paper consistently. 

We are mailing additional copies every issue to non-subscribers so that we can best explain this plan to everyone. 

A subscription is valid for three years.

You can pick up Mid Rivers at newsstands throughout the county. Every Schnucks and Dierbergs store in St. Charles County will have the paper available for free in their community periodical section, usually located near the front doors. It will also be available at dozens of other local newsstands. This option is great for occasional readers, or for subscribers who want additional physical copies to share with their friends. 

We anticipate that these pickup locations will go through their copies quickly, so make sure you are looking for them every other Wednesday.

You can read full issues online. The entire issue, including all the great information and deals from our advertising partners, is available in an easy-to-read digital version at Simply navigate to our home page and click on Current Issue.
