The Booneville Democrat will be producing a special section saluting the Class 4A state champion, 15-0 Booneville Bearcat football team in the Jan. 8 edition of the paper.
Editor Glenn M. Parrish said the time delay from the championship game and running the special section is unfortunate, but unavoidable.
“With the ice storm pushing the finals back to Dec. 20, we got into the holiday season and accelerated deadlines making it impossible to add a section to an edition until Jan. 8.” said Parrish. “Plus, with the extra time it will allow us to make the product as good as it can be.”
“We also wanted to give advertisers who would like to extend congratulations to the team time to plan and or design a congratulatory ad for the section,” adds publisher Vickey Wiggins.
To reserve a spot in the section, call the Democrat office at 675-4455 and ask for Wiggins, advertising manager Manuel Mann or Christina Wharton.
