Effective Jan. 1, 2018 The Ponca City News monthly rate will increase by $1. This is the first rate increase in over 11 years. The cost of news print and production has increased dramatically over the years. The newspaper carriers have also not received a raise in pay during this time and they will receive a portion of the increase. The Ponca City News is still one of the lowest monthly newspaper rates in the state and surrounding areas. All subscribers also receive free access to the online edition.
The Kay County Courthouse will be closed on Dec. 25-26 and Jan. 1 for the holidays.
