If the appearance of today’s Leader-Union in your mailbox is a surprise, it’s because this issue is being sent to every household in Fayette County.
“We’ve invested in this sampling because we want non-subscribers to see what they’re missing,” said Dave Bell, publisher. “We think it’s important for citizens to be informed about what’s going on in Fayette County – the news, the features, the sports and the advertising specials. And there’s no better way to do that than reading The Leader-Union.”
Helping to bring you this issue of the paper are three sampling sponsors: Arthur Young Inc., Harmon’s Market IGA and The Medicine Shoppe.
As an incentive for people to subscribe – or to add a year to their current subscription – the annual in-county subscription price has been reduced more than 25 percent (from $30 to $22) during this promotion. A six-month in-county subscription is only $12. A subscription signup flyer is included in this issue, and several subscription ads are printed in the paper. The offer ends at noon on Nov. 21.
At that time, all of those who responded to the offer will be entered into a drawing in which two lucky winners will receive either a 19-inch LCD flat-screen television, courtesy of Clymer TV & Appliance, or a photo package valued at $250 from Diekemper Photography.
“We work hard to produce a good community newspaper,” Bell said. “We want to expand the circle of readers who are better citizens because they’re informed about activities going on around them.”
