The Zachary Plainsman-News enters a new era today as it joins The Advocate family of newspapers.

The Zachary Advocate and Plainsman will continue to cover happenings in Zachary and Baker.

With its own reporters and through reader-submitted announcements, news items and photos, The Zachary Advocate and Plainsman will keep the community informed about area schools, local government, fairs and festivals, high school and youth sports, and other community meetings and events.

The new publication is available in several ways:

  • Plainsman-News subscribers who received the weekly newspaper by mail and who live in a deliverable area are getting the daily Advocate, which includes The Zachary Advocate and Plainsman as a separate section on Thursdays, for two months. Afterward, they will have the option to continue The Advocate at its regular price.
  • Plainsman-News readers who are already daily Advocate subscribers are getting The Zachary Advocate and Plainsman delivered to their homes as a separate section in their Thursday paper.
  • The Zachary Advocate and Plainsman is available in stores on Thursdays inside the daily Advocate.
