Our News Coverage Policy

As your hometown newspaper we welcome news of your families’ or organization’s activities, events, fundraisers, and honors. Because we have a small staff we depend on you to get information and photographs to us, although we do provide assistance through editing. We prefer e-mail. Our e-mail address is We must give preference to dated items so if your event has already happened or is more than a week away, it may be several weeks before it is published. If you want to make sure your item is in at a specific time, you may want a paid ad. Please keep your items concise and to the point, putting the most important information first in case we need to shorten your article for publishing. For more information, please check the submission guidelines. The number of pages we can print each week is dependent on the number of ads we receive to pay the cost of printing the news. We appreciate your patronage and cooperation. Thank you for supporting your “hometown” newspaper. 

Letters to the Editor are appreciated. However, because of space and subject considerations we are limited in the number of letters we can publish. Our long standing policy is that we do not publish letters that are printed free of charge on the editorial page supporting or in opposition to any candidate seeking public office or any item up for public vote in the last issue before the vote. Only paid ads can be accepted. All letters must be signed and represent the opinion of the letter writer and not necessarily that of the newspaper. The deadline for submitting a Letter to the Editor is Monday at 5 p.m. of the current week.
