The County News carries a Thursday dateline, but is printed on Wednesdays and distributed on Wednesday evenings (by carrier) and Thursday morning (by mail). Retail advertising deadline is noon on Mondays. All news copy should be in The News office by noon on Tuesdays. Position requests will be followed as far as possible. For guaranteed positions we must charge an additional 25%. We can’t be financially responsible for errors in copy beyond the value of the space occupied. We will be glad to write a letter of correction for you to post. 

PRE-PRINTS should be in our office by 5 p.m. on the Friday prior to insertion date. If you have a delivery problem we will be glad to pick them up within a reasonable distance. Ask about our SELECTIVE DISTRIBUTION for pre-prints. We are able to saturate all or any part of our circulation area.
