Milton Courier

First, for those of you haven’t heard, the building at 513 Vernal Ave. is no longer the home of the Milton Courier. Today (Feb. 28) is our moving day. We are setting up desks at the Daily Jefferson County Union in Fort Atkinson. News and sports editors will be there on Tuesdays for production, and otherwise, out and about in Milton.

Chances are good there will be many questions as we go through this transition.

Managing Editor Rebecca Kanable will be at The Gathering Place, 715 Campus St., at 2 p.m. Thursday, March 7, for “Ask the Editor.” Bring your questions. In the meantime, here are the answers to some of the more common questions.

The Milton Courier is part of Hometown News. When talking about subscriptions, classified ads, or legal notices, please specify that your call or email is about the — Milton — Courier. (Another Hometown News publication is called The Courier and covers Waterloo and Marshall.)

Subscriptions — Most of the calls that come in to the Milton Courier are about subscriptions and address changes. As many of you know, we do not handle those in Milton. We transfer you to Christine at 608-764-0299. Please call that number directly or email
