Customer Service

The Reporter & Farmer will strive to serve its readers and advertisers throughout the Day County area. Our newspaper will be politically independent, issue driven, and fair. We will offer readers a balanced view and historic record of the week. We provide a public forum, through letters to the editor, where subscribers and readers can express their views and opinions. Our employees are encouraged to provide customers with excellent service and to play an active role in the community in which they live.
