Next week, Dec. 4, the Ladysmith News will cost 50 cents more when purchased on the newsstands. “The increase has been implemented to catch up with the cost of production, including the price of newsprint, since the last increase, 13 years ago. It is only the second newsstand increase in 30 years,” said Ladysmith News publisher, Jim Bell.

But subscription prices will remain the same at $44 for local, $49.75 for out-of-county and $53.75 for out-of-state. There are also on-line only subscriptions available.

“Today, at $1.50, the price of the paper on the newsstands is at least $1 cheaper than a gallon of gas and approximately equal to the cost of a cup of coffee,” Bell said.

To sign up for a subscription to the Ladysmith News, call 715-532-5591, during normal business hours.
