Deadline to reserve space for that week's paper is 2 p.m. Monday prior and design materials are due by 4 p.m. Monday. There will be a late fee of $40 for ad materials that are not turned in by this deadline. Additional charges may apply for use of clip art, photos or other graphic elements that must be purchased through our online art suppliers.
