News‐Register Milestone Policies

When you have a Milestone, the News‐Register's online and printed Milestones can help you convey important information, establish a permanent record and create a lasting tribute.

Milestones appear first online as soon as they clear the approval process. They remain in the News‐Register's publicly accessible and keyword‐searchable archives on a permanent basis. They subsequently are published in the next available edition of our newspaper, establishing a lasting legacy that can be shared with friends and relatives.

Our normal deadline for the newspaper is 9 a.m. Monday for Tuesday publication, and 9 a.m. Thursday for Friday publication. Milestones should be posted here, using our classified advertising system. They are a joint project of our news and advertising departments, and are billed at special Milestones advertising rates.

All Milestones should be posted in the classified advertising system, including photographs, if desired. Additional photographs for print publication must be e‐mailed or delivered as originals to the newspaper.

The principal contact for assistance is:
