The Searchlight readers will see a new, larger size newspaper next week as we are transitioning to a broadsheet format from the traditional tabloid format that The Searchlight has used for many years.
To accommodate the new size, The Searchlight will be printed in Great Falls Tuesday evenings and transported back to Wolf Point for the weekly mailings to subscribers on Wednesdays.
Several weeks ago, we changed the deadline to Tuesday at 9 a.m. in preparation for this change. While some last-minute submissions after 9 a.m. Tuesday may be able to be accepted for that week’s issue, we encourage everyone with news items or advertising to ensure that we have them by the deadline.
Changing to the new size will also allow The Searchlight to print full color ads for our advertisers at under half the cost.
