    I would like to put a church announcement in the paper. Is this the right place to email it to you?

    I’m trying to enter the Easter Egg Hunt classified contest, but can’t log on using the website address given in the paper and can’t find a contest button on the paper’s website. Last year I had a hard time getting on for this contest, too. Already have an account for the basketball challenge. Thanks.
