Frequently Asked Questions

Want to submit news, a letter or photograph?


1. How do I submit an obituary?

We print obituary notices, written by family or friends, for a $50 fee. Information about the deceased may very well need to be verified so include the name of the funeral home and a phone number where you can be reached. We are able to help you write the story. Often these stories are written and submitted with the help of a funeral director. Contact us at or for more information.
