About The
Cedar Mill News



People like local!

The Cedar Mill News continues to be successful in this age of news downsizing. We have expanded our publication from eight to twelve pages, and the circulation just keeps going up! It's because people want to know what's going on in their neighborhood, and as the Oregonian cuts local coverage, we have the opportunity to provide it.

Our rates are affordable. We offer *free layout. Every ad appears in the printed version, the downloadable PDF, and on the website.

See below for more details.
