Please note: We prefer to receive all ads in writing when possible. We discourage phoned-in copy because, even when it's read back, errors frequently creep in. Because of this, we do not accept responsibility for errors in those ads. If it's impossible for you to mail, fax, or e-mail your ad, then go ahead and call us. The phone number is 520-387-7688.
