    Need help with local newspapers

    I need to post something in newspapers in both Grinnell and Urbandale, Iowa. Does anyone know if they still have local papers, and if not, what is the predominant paper in those 2 cities. My family is from Grinnell, but I was raised in Urbandale. I think Grinnell had a paper, and Urbandale had the Urbandale News. There is a www.urbandalenews.com site, but it doesn't seem to be an actual newspaper anymore. I know I can use the DM Register for Urbandale and possibly Grinnell, but would prefer something more local if possible.

    This is somewhat time sensitive (obituary for a family member), so any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I believe they have done away with the Urbandale paper, and the only way you can get the Urbandale news is thru the Des Moines Register.

    Go with the register. It is not expensive at all to put an obituary in there. I guess this is the one case I would recommend that paper since it has such a big subscriber base.
