Terms & Conditions
Advertising is payable in full upon receipt of invoice, but in no case are ads payable any later than the deadline for the next issue unless other arrangements have been made. Fees of 1.5% per month (min. $20.00) are assessed on accounts older than 30 days. A $30.00 charge is levied for each returned check. Production charges, if any, are quoted per job. Any advertising may be rejected or cancelled at any time by the publisher without prior notice, and any unused prepaid revenues refunded to the advertiser. Advertising rates are subject to change upon 30 days notice from the publisher. Verbal extensions to written contracts are made under the same terms as the written agreements they amend.

Cancellations 
Ads may be canceled by the advertiser prior to the space reservation deadline for the issue in which they were to appear, subject at the publisher's discretion to a cancellation charge of one-third of the total price due as contracted, plus actual production costs incurred, if any. (See also Frequency Discounts below.)

Color 
Color is available on select pages. 

Frequency Discounts 
Multiple ad placements (more than three) of any size qualify for discounts as shown above, including ads smaller than 1/8 page. Ads need not run in consecutive issues, but must run within a number of issues no larger than twice the number of ad insertions to qualify. (Example: 10 ads must run within no more than 20 consecutive issues to qualify for 20% discount.) Advertising billed at a discounted frequency rate which is then cancelled by the advertiser prior to the agreed upon number of insertions will be billed retroactively at a corrected rate on the final billing.

Classified advertising 
Accepted by mail or online (not by phone) 25¢ per word per issue, pre-paid, non-refundable. Inserts: Call or e-mail for quote.
