Little Argus

The Carlsbad Current-Argus offers the Little Argus as a complimentary service to nonprofits and community organizations for the purpose of running public service announcements and/or publicizing community activities. Little Argus submissions may be sent to at least 24 hours in advance of the first day the announcement is desired to run.
