GUIDELINES TO OBITUARIES
The deadline for obituaries is noon Monday for the Wednesday paper, and noon Thursday for the Saturday paper. Deadlines are subject to change during holidays. The obituary must tell where the person is from -- the city where they lived. If the deceased lived in Hood County, a standard obituary, under 200 words, is free in the Hood County News. A fee is applied for expanded or additional information. A black and white picture is included for no extra charge. A color picture is available for a fee of $100. Obituaries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
