Subscriber Account Set-up Steps
Step 1: Creating a Username and your password
- Click on the Sign Up button that appears on the top of this page. This will take you to a new screen asks you to enter your preferred email address as your user name and then choose any password you like and will remember. Please note, to keep security high, your password will need to be at least 6 digits long. We suggest a password that includes letters and numbers. We do not have access to your password, so if it is forgotten, you will need to ask for a password reset. After typing in your new password and then confirming your new password a second time, then click the little box next to "I am not a robot" and then click the Create Account button.
Step 2: Linking your new username to your newspaper subscription account
- Click on the three lines just above Menu. On the left side, a new menu appears. Click on Subscribe. This takes you to a new screen. Since you already have a subscription with us, go to either the third section for the Highlands News-Sun or the fourth section for the Polk News-Sun, Free Access for Current Subscribers and click the Get Started button. This takes you to the last screen, where you enter your newspaper account number. The newspaper account number is on your printed invoice we send you and if easier, just call us at (863) 385-6155 and we will supply it to you. Once you enter the account number, click the little box next to "I am not a robot" and then click the Claim button.
Congratulations! You have now set up your online account. In the future, just click Log In and enter your email address and password and the site will be fully open for you to explore and enjoy!
