Have some questions? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions for quick answers.

What is Zip06?

Zip06 is the digital news division of Shore Publishing covering the towns along the CT shoreline between New Haven and the Connecticut River. It is a community news platform that aims to not only provide up to the minute local news and information but also provides a platform for community engagement where registered users can share opinions, photos and information with their neighbors. Join in the conversation!

Are you connected to my weekly newspaper: the East Haven Courier, the North Haven Courier, The Sound, The Source, Harbor News, or the Valley Courier?

Yes! The newspaper that arrives free each Thursday in your mailbox is created by the same staff that runs Zip06!

Do you publish the Shore Line Times?

No. The Shore Line Times is published by the New Haven Register. You can contact them at 203-789-5200.

Will you publish my stories, photos, or events?

Yes! Registered members of the Zip06 community can contribute stories, photos, and events.

If I submit through Zip06 will my story, photo, or event be printed in my local newspaper?

Not yet! We're still working on making this happen. For now, if you want something to appear both online and in print you should submit to the website and also email news@shorepublishing.com

How do I submit a story or announcement?

What is 'News From You'?

'News From You' is exactly what it sounds like: It's news from you!

This is the special place on Zip06 where all of the news submitted by members of the community winds up. Do you have an article you want to publish? Are you getting married? Did your child make the honor roll? Those are all examples of news from you!

Do I need to create an account?

No. Creating an account with Zip06 is completely optional. You can read all of our stories, browse calendar items, watch videos, and browse photos without ever creating an account.

Some users, however, will want to create an account to submit events to the calendar, post stories and announcements, participate in some online contests, and comment on stories.

The choice is completely yours.

Zip06 accounts are 100% free. Signing up will only cost you a few moments of your time.

Art Exhibits/Openings

Chester Village West
317 West Main Street, Chester,

Ivoryton resident and mixed-media abstract artist Judith Barbour Osborne will showcase 14 of her iconic works in a one-woman exhibition titled "Staining the Wind" from July 16 to August 21 at the Chester Village West active retirement community, 317 West Main Street, Chester Conn. 06412.

The public is invited to attend the exhibit's opening reception on Friday, July 17 from 4 to 6 p.m., and to visit the exhibit through August 21.

Osborne's creations explore the dynamic relationship of opposites such as chance and intention to generate energies in her works. "As in all my work, the pieces in this show reflect my goal of making aspects of non-visual reality visible, as if staining the wind," she explains. Her text sources are primarily poetry and spiritual writings.
