Birth announcements are run on a "space available" basis. The Gatesville Messenger & Star-Forum will not guarantee which edition of the paper the announcement will appear. Any special request or change from this form will be charged at regular advertising rates. Late announcements (30 days or more after the birth) that still follow this form will carry a $12 publication fee. Please print or write in a legible manner and fill out as completely as possible. Incomplete forms will be edited at the discretion of the editor. Errors on the part of the newspaper will be corrected by re-running the birth. Omissions or errors on the part of the person who fills out the form will be re-run only as paid advertising. You may include one photo of the newborn for a $10 handling fee. If you wish to have anyone else included in the photo, you will be charged regular advertising rate. While we strive for accuracy, sometimes mistakes occur. If it is the mistake of the newspaper, the photo and accompanying information in its corrected form but without additional changes, will be re-run at no charge. Mistakes, however, must be of a signifcant nature as determined by management and have a significant bearing on the event. The publisher also reserves the right to edit this information for length and/or content.
