Regular Ad Plans:

To keep things simple we have one ad size – a 12 by 3 banner, with low-cost six month or one year plans. Save money by selecting a one year plan.

Banner ads are hand-placed into stories with attention paid to placements that are best for our advertisers. The number of ad placements varies per month based on the number of stories, length of stories, etc.  The min. numbers are just a starting point, as we often give bonus placements.

Single Share – min. of 10 ads per month

$1,500/one year (six month trial – $875)

Double Share – min. of 20 ads per month

$3,000/one year

Triple Share – min. of 30 ads per month

$4,500/one year


Short Term Advertising

We also offer short term advertising. This is a great option for advertising special events, candidates for office, ballot initiative ads, hiring ads, etc.  The cost is $250 per month for single level placement.  The cost is higher than our longer term ads because of set up time involved.

Special Section Sponsorships

Our special section sponsors bring stable funding to our website while supporting work in a specific area. Potential sections include:  Explore!, Jobs, Community Groups, Event Page, Art and Music, or other ideas you may have that would be of interest to our readers. Details vary based on section.


To make a payment, use PayPal.
