We here at The Valley News love receiving news items and photographs sent to us to place in the newspaper.
As devout readers know, we fill the paper twice a week with lots of school news, events and happenings from area nonprofit agencies, business news, city and county government news, church happenings, sports and senior news.
There also are the popular weekly columns — Hodgepodge, In and Around Hannibal, Jerry’s Journal, Bodley Bulletins, A Sportman’s World and Light in the Darkness.
For all of you who send items to us, there are some deadline changes for the coming weeks due to the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. These deadlines are for news items — retail advertising, classified advertising, etc., has different deadlines.
