Advertise in the Bulletin



Letter of the Week

This week's top letter comes from Jim Anderson, the sage of Sisters, who laments the proliferation of litter from free shoppers circulated by our local daily to pump up its circulation numbers. The blue bags truly are an eye sore, Jim. But we're not talking trash when we say that you can cash in your gripe for a $20 gift certificate from Dinner's Ready for being our letter of the week. Bon Appetite!

    If you are looking for the best bang for your buck in advertising, do it with the Bulletin; they really spread the word! The Bulletin doesn't only "spread the word," they litter the countryside with it.
    And they're not hard to locate either; you can probably find a rotting Bulletin in someone's driveway, front yard, or even out in the middle of the road. Moreover, don't worry, you will get your money's worth advertising in the Bulletin, they wrap their "Central Oregon Market Place" in a blue plastic bag before it is thrown on your property, that way it litters longer.

According to the sheriff's office, you cannot legally stop a business from leaving litter on your lawn, under your mailbox or driveway with their advertising - that's interrupting Free Enterprise. Even if you don't want it, you'll get it, and it's up to you to clean up the litter even if you never asked for in the first place. Now that's advertising!
    Yes siree, the Bulletin works for you! They keep tossing their advertising around so you will never lack for something to do - or buy. So be a good citizen, help keep your neighbors busy cleaning up litter by purchasing space in the Bulletin's advertising section, you can find them lying around anywhere...

Jim Anderson, Sisters
