We have the advantage of being able to deliver the local content that other news media often lack. As newspapers around the world struggle to stay afloat.

Advertising with the PRT is your opportunity to showcase your business, but it is also a way to contribute to this valuable community resource. The continued success of this free, non-profit newspaper is the result of the hard work of many people: an amazing, supportive board of directors; the dedicated staff, our volunteer editorial team and, of course, our generous donors and advertisers, the real heroes who enable us to continue to produce this wonderful community paper.

The mission of the PRT can be summed up in two words: Partnership and Trust. The staff, board and volunteers collaborate to put out the paper each month but our community, and our readers are equally important partners in this venture. Our primary responsibility is to serve the interests of our readers by providing news that they can trust is accurate and unbiased and providing a forum for the civil ex- change of ideas.
