     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A leading news magazine for Native Americans is dropping its print version to focus on its website, and some readers worry that could mean less access to news for older tribal members and those on remote reservations.
     This Week From Indian Country Today will become an online newsletter starting with the July 17 issue. The national weekly magazine based in New York City has been a leading source for news coverage for rural and urban Native Americans since 1981.
     Publisher Ray Halbritter says readers want to get news quickly, and the digital newsletter will help with that.
     Federal data show far fewer Native Americans have broadband Internet than the general population.
