Using an RSS reader you can have The Local's headlines delivered straight to your desktop as we update them throughout the day.
If you do not already have a reader, or aggregator, you can download one from various providers. If you're using a PC use SharpReader or FeedDemon. On a Mac try NetNewsWire & NewNewsWire Lite (free). And if you work within Outlook, you can use NewsGator. Linux users can use Straw.
Then just copy and paste the address for the newsfeed channel of your choice into your reader.
