NEWPORT NEWS—The small business complex across the street from the entrance to the Stoneybrook neighborhood in Newport News has seen a lot of changes over the years. From a high-end Italian ristorante next to a Greek market, to a Mexican restaurant which is now flanked by The Original Pizza Sam, the residents in the area—and people who make the trip to get there—are certainly eating well.

Pizza Sam officially opened at 15392 Warwick Blvd. on Thursday, August 18, but was 63 years in the making. Owner Sam Schiralli, Jr. grew up in a pizza shop operated by his parents in Queens in New York that opened in 1967, but their original location in Brooklyn was established in 1959. Now Sam’s logo sports a picture of him and his father together with the words, “Like Father, Like Son.”

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
