ONLINE: How do I make this web site my home page?
Programs vary, but in Microsoft Internet Explorer click on “Tools” at the top of the page, then click on “Internet Options.” In the tab named “General” you will find a data entry field for “Home Page” where you type the following: http://www.gallatinnorthmissourian.com.
ONLINE: How far back does your electronic archive go?
Our electronic archive began in 2000. There are photos and articles prior to that time, but randomly. You can do a word search within the photo album to check specific results. There are several reunion photographs but nothing comprehensive during the 1970s. Microfilm of all previous editions are available at the Daviess County Library in Gallatin.
PRINT EDITION: Our event is not-for-profit. Is there a charge?
Generally, and regardless of whether your organization is not-for-profit, if admission is charged then publicity is charged. Expenses for paper, ink and postage apply — even as we donate our labor for your non-profit group. So, if you charge, we charge.
PRINT EDITION: There is no admission charged to our event. What kind of publicity will you provide?
We will publish a news article about your event no more than two times, once well in advance and again the week of the event. If a business, organization or individual wants an article published more than twice, they must pay to have the article published as an advertisement.
PRINT EDITION: Do you charge for birthday and anniversary announcements?
Basic information concerning anniversaries, reunions or other celebrations can be printed free of charge. However, birthday messages of a personal nature must be paid advertisements. News articles are not intended to be invitations to attend an event and, thus, should not include such statements as “Friends and family are invited to attend.” Invitations and such statements as “The couple requests no gifts, please” are advertising statements.
PRINT EDITION: Can I get a copy of an old newspaper?
Approximately 25 copies of each edition are available on file for the previous 52 weeks. These may be purchased while supplies last. Thereafter, a single copy is bound in an annual hardback book for posterity. These archive books as well as microfilm of many older editions are available for public use at the Daviess County Library in Gallatin.
