What?  Doesn't matter if it's outsourced or not, they can still charge a search charge.  Internet, tape, floppy, stone tablet, whatever...  wow.
...
The original intent of the statue was that any fee charged could not be used  that would restrict the average citizen from exercising their right to be informed.  (as informed by a district judge as we walked down the hall in state capital)
He advised that the Open Records and Freedom of Information were separate acts.

Has it made a big difference on comments?  (unable to see them)

No idea, I only occasionally read TW articles, and haven't been back over there since that one, though it did seem to be really limited on posts.

The Owasso Reporter is now behind a paywall too.  I'd assume that all the Neighbor News community papers are similar.  Given their tiny markets, I can't see how this will add to their subscriber base.  I thought it was the advertisers who really paid the bills, and they want as many eyes as possible on those ads.

Also, the New York Times has reduced the number of free articles to 10.  Previously, it was 20.  Apparently they're now modeling the paper on the Tulsa World!
