Residents may have questions about information appearing in the newspaper – for example, “Is there a charge to place an announcement or obituary?” or “How do I submit a picture for Photo of the Week or Near and Far with The Friday Flyer?” Here are some helpful tips:
- Submission for Photos of the Week are encouraged. Please send the largest file possible, at least 1 MB. Photos should be of Canyon Lake scenery. Other photos of people and activities are filed for an occasional feature called “Out and About in Canyon Lake.” Submitted photos also may be posted on The Friday Flyer’s Facebook page.
- There is no charge to place announcements, obituaries, news briefs and club news, with or without pictures.
- Residents are encouraged to share announcements of the special events in their lives, along with photos. Photos will be returned if a self-addressed envelope is included. Announcements should be limited to two to three paragraphs.
- News briefs are printed as space allows, with preference given to those items of most interest to Canyon Lake residents.
- Club news is reserved for the use of Canyon Lake clubs. Pictures are welcome and will be used as space and photo quality permit.
- As a service to residents, obituaries with photos are printed for no charge; however, the deceased person should have been a resident or property owner. Space constraints prohibit accepting obituaries for relatives of residents.
- The paper relies on parents and teachers to provide information about events at school, as well as awards and accomplishments (academic, athletic or artistic) of their children.
- Residents and groups are invited to take The Friday Flyer with them on any trip, near or far, and send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include details like who, what, when, where and other highlights.
- Letters to the Editor are welcome; however, neighbor complaints and business testimonials (good or bad) will not be printed. Residents may send letters no more frequently than once a month and all letters must be signed. No anonymous letters, for example: “a concerned neighbor” or a “thankful resident,” will be printed.
Letters and other information may be e-mailed to Editor Donna Ritchie at email@example.com or faxed to 951-244-2748. For those who prefer to mail or drop off news, the office address is 31558 Railroad Canyon Rd.
