Publisher's Note

June 27, 2022

By Robin Gregg, Publisher & Editor

It's officially SUMMER!!! The high humidity and temperatures are here and so are summer events. The County Fairs and Mark Twain Old Threshers are coming up in a week and I will be at all of them! Look for a blue canopy!!! I'm looking for advertisers to sponsor the coverage and results. I'll also be taking Thank You orders at the fairgrounds.

Just a reminder, I'm always taking recommendations for our special sections, such as Farmer spotlights, senior spotlights, and/or citizen of the month!

Like everything else right now, prices are on a rise. Due to a price increase on our printing, postage rates, and paper, unfortunately, we need to increase our advertising prices. This takes effect on July 1, 2022. As always, the more ads you run, the bigger the discount we will give you. Don't forget we have package deals as well. Our packages can include one or all (print/online, digital, and Facebook). Advertising isn't just newspaper ads anymore; we offer digital as well.

We are looking for weekly advertisers! If I haven't contacted you yet, please send me an email or call me.

I appreciate your patience with me while I am covering both counties by myself! I would like to thank everyone for their help in submissions and ideas! Keep them coming!
