I used to sell advertising for a newspaper such as you
describe. Ours was a freebie. I recommend only advertising
in a paper targeted at a geographical community if it is by
paid subscription only. In our case the "loyal readership"
demographics where older than you indicate except for other
local business owners and people who had lived in the town
for generations (know in New England as townies).
