TOP STORY > >Price of paper on newsstands now 50 cents

The Leaderís newsstand price has been increased to 50 cents to help cover rising newsprint, ink and energy costs.

This is the first increase in 20 years.

The cost of newsprint has gone up about 40 percent in recent months, and energy costs, as our readers know, have increased almost as much.

But the cost of a Leader subscription still remains $18 a year and $15 for students, teachers, military and retirees ó a real bargain for 102 issues a year, or just pennies an issue and savings of at least $31 a year.

Call 982-9421 or 941-5132 for a special $15 rate to subscribe to the award-winning Leader, which was recently named the best large weekly in the state.
