Sierra Sun Times celebrates 12 years of digital publishing in 2016.

The Sierra Sun Times/ was first published in February 2004 as a seven-day, online only local news source.

It is the only media source based in Mariposa that publishes 24/7 and that has a local emergency scanner online and a weather station that updates continuously. The site covers Mariposa and the surrounding Sierra Foothill areas.

Billed as the local “original news source,” Sierra Sun Times offers real-time information for residents on area news, events and emergency fire updates. Readers also will find letters to the editor, daily sheriff and booking reports, California news, obituaries, U.S. and world news, political articles and senior news.

Because the site is updated and viewed round the clock, the Sierra Sun Times boasts that its ads can be viewed 365 days a year, giving advertisers 24/7 exposure.
