Business News and Press Releases

We are a complimentary newspaper published once a month for Kennesaw/Acworth and Marietta/Powder Springs and mailed FREE to homeowners. The publications are paid for by our display advertisers. Without their support - there would be no community newspaper. If you have a story about your business you wish to share with our readers, we invite you to join our advertising family. Our advertising package includes a brief "welcome new advertiser" your first month (this includes a photo with cutline of your ribbon cutting, if you are having one). We also publish a story about your business if you advertise three months in a row in the same zone. Due to space constraints you must be an advertiser to have your press release or article published.
