FYI: The link to the Gleaner in the first line of this post goes nowhere.

Still not fixed. That's how I was able to get this very valuable piece of info and save myself the aded stress in trying to open the CURRENT page for today 30th Jan only to keep seeing the date of Feb 28 popping up. I kept changing my bookmark and wondering if I had added the wrong link and not realizing that in fact the current day's news had not actually been updated YET. Please work on correcting it as this is the first thing I do on my pc every morning...READ THE GLEANER so I'll be really happy when you get it working right. Thanks anyway for the most times when it is updated.

Thank you for the very informative info on why the Jamaica gleaner web site doesn't open to the current page . Seems the problem is still not fixed since today's page still opens at 28Jan even after three days old. Well It sure helped my wasting so much time to try to change and rearrange my browser entry thinking I was entering it wrong. Thank you again for your review and comment section and it seems the OBSERVER is doing a much better job in getting their site work correctly.
