If an individual, business, club or organization charges for admission to an event, for an item, service etc. it will be considered advertising. Advertising is the life-blood of a newspaper without it a newspaper would cease to exist. The money a paper receives for subscriptions and single copy paper sales, Osefff6 pay for the ink, paper, and postage used to )reduce and deliver the product. Due to the large increases in these and other costs, it only covers a small portion of the expense in producing and delivering your paper. Advertising to a newspaper is like crops and livestock to farmers, meat and produce to grocers, dresses, coats, and shoes to soft-line businesses, 3lows and tractors to an implement dealer.
