Note to read­ers: New look, new rates

The Glengarry News - - Front Page - -- Richard Ma­honey

As you have al­ready no­ticed, the look of The News has been tweaked.

Af­ter pre­sent­ing the same face for the last sev­eral years, we felt a “re­fresh” was timely.

Our mast­head has been mod­i­fied, we have adopted new ban­ners for our Opin­ion, Sports and Clas­si­fieds pages. The goal of this re­design, which re­tains the pop­u­lar tar­tans in our mast­head and ban­ners, is to pro­vide you with a live­lier and eas­ier to read for­mat.

At the same time, be­cause of ever-in­creas­ing oper­at­ing costs, new sub­scrip­tion and ad­ver­tis­ing rates are be­ing in­tro­duced so we can con­tinue to serve you bet­ter.

We last ad­justed our sub­scrip­tion and sin­gle copy rates in 2012.

As you well know, dur­ing that pe­riod, oper­at­ing costs, in­clud­ing taxes, hy­dro, fuel, print­ing and postage ex­penses, have con­tin­ued to rise.

In or­der to off­set some of th­ese higher ex­penses, The News is obliged to, as of Septem­ber 1, in­crease our sub­scrip­tion and sin­gle copy rates. As of that date, a sin­gle copy will cost $1.40, the one-year lo­cal sub­scrip­tion rate will be $60. For sub­scribers liv­ing out­side of the re­gion, the cost will be $80 for one year. Sub­scribers liv­ing out­side of Canada will pay $230. All of th­ese prices in­clude taxes.

Rates for clas­si­fied and dis­play ad­ver­tis­ing, which also have not been ad­justed in re­cent years, are also in­creas­ing.

What has not changed is our com­mit­ment to you, to pro­vide you with the best com­mu­nity news­pa­per pos­si­ble.

The News thanks our many loyal read­ers and ad­ver­tis­ers for your on­go­ing sup­port in this our 126th year of bring­ing you the news of Glen­garry.

We hope you like our new ap­pear­ance, and un­der­stand why we are in­creas­ing rates.

As al­ways, we would like to hear what you think of us. You can call me at 613525-2020, ex­ten­sion 23, or e-mail [email protected]­gar­, or drop by the of­fice at 3 Main St., Alexan­dria.
