We have a small grace window that our software allows where you will get the paper, but then it will automatically cut you off without a payment. It’s something I hate to do, but it does cost us money to print and mail the paper so subscriptions are vital to our operations. You can certainly send your payment of $49 in county or $51.50 for out of Chisago County to: PO Box 748, Lindstrom MN 55045. You can simply call us at 651-257-5115 or sign up online at And again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading!
