Hello Arcata Eyedvertiser!

The vastly popular April Fools’ edition of the Arcata Eye will appear on Wednesday, April 3 this year!

This time, we are harkening back to the past and producing the Arcata Eye circa 1953, but 1953 as seen by the Eye: imagine what the local newspaper of a twisted Pleasantville might look like…

And, as in previous years, the actual newspaper will appear on the reverse of the April Fools’ edition. As usual, we will be printing and distributing additional copies; this edition always sells out and gets passed around and preserved for future generations.

It’s not too late to design an alternate April Fools’ ad, or to have us work one up for you. If you would like us to design an ad for you, please send us your ideas by Wednesday, March 27, and if you are designing your own ad, we need it by 5 p.m., Friday, March 29. If I don’t hear from you, and you’re scheduled to run an ad that week, we’ll use your regularly scheduled ad.

Thank you for your ongoing patronage, and best wishes on this most festive time of the year!
