The Emmett Messenger-Index's e-edition is a replica of our print edition without the inserts. You can browse through the pages just as if you had the newspaper in your hands.
Emmett Messenger-Index — your best choice for local news and advertising — has made a portion of its news content available. But that free content doesn’t reflect the full content of the paper.
If you’re only reading what the paper posts online for free, you’re only getting part of the news and information you need to stay informed about Gem County and the greater Treasure Valley. Each month, the paper publishes far more local news items, while its website carries about 20 percent of that.
If you want online access to all the content offered in the print edition, you want to be a VIP member.

The cost of doing so is steep -- we cannot give away the product.

If you are a subscriber to the Online Messenger, articles up to 14 days old may be viewed or printed for free.
If you are not a subscriber, there will be a nominal charge to view or print all articles.
When either the time limit or the article limit expires, whichever comes first, you'll be directed to the purchase page to add more articles. The time you purchase begins counting down when you do your first search.
We, like most newspapers, now charge a fee for access to earlier articles. People may purchase one article or arrange to purchase access to a greater number of articles within a given time frame.
Our charges, which are in line with the fees charged by other newspapers for similar services, help defray the considerable cost of building and maintaining the archive database.
