Be alert for newspaper scammers
The News and Tribune has received multiple calls about a subject going door-to-door selling subscriptions to the News and Tribune.
The News and Tribune does not solicit door-to-door and anyone doing so offering subscriptions to the newspaper is participating in an attempted scam. Do not give them money or personal information. Instead, call the local police.
Anyone with questions can call the newspaper at 812-206-2107 or 812-206-2108.
