Exceeded monthly usage: What gives?

Every morning, I wake up and check the headlines via Sacbee.com. Last week, however, I found that once I have "exceeded my monthly usage," I cannot access the site without having to subscribe to something called The Express.

What gives? We pay our monthly delivery subscription rate and have for almost 40 years, whether we are in town or not. Now we have to pay for online news.

I understand that hard copy news is being phased out in many cities, but we love to sit together and read The Bee at breakfast. It's a lot easier to read the hard copy than try to tote a tablet or computer around. Would someone please explain why we now have to pay for online news? And what is our "allotted news amount"?
