If a press release is submitted in the form of a news story (see above) we will consider it for publication.

We are a small newspaper trying to survive by selling ads to provide quality local news to our readers, and 'gimmes' -- announcements of events or programs that ask for a reader response -- compete with our ad sales, therefore we are unable to publish these releases.

We do offer our free events calendar and a very reasonable paid announcement option for non-profits (see below).
