In an effort to give Greene County residents as up-to-date county news as possible, the Greene County Messenger will be updating free obituaries and news stories on its website every day.

Though the Greene County Messenger will continue to publish obituaries and updated news stories in its weekly print edition, the newspaper’s website,, will be working with the local funeral homes and their directors to post obituaries as the newspaper receives the information.

The Messenger editorial staff will also be providing information on up-to-date and late-breaking news stories online as they develop. The updated obituaries and news stories will be free of charge.

“Although the Messenger takes pride in providing updated and comprehensive Greene County news, features and sports in our print edition each and every week, we feel that offering obituaries and updated stories on our website each day at no charge will be a huge asset to our readers,” said Steve Barrett, managing editor of the Greene County Messenger.

Barrett said the initiative to offer daily obituaries and updated news stories online has already been implemented.
