tools-clip-art-18From NIT Publisher Matt Marquardt –

Spring cleaning has arrived early at NIT.

As with any business, there comes a time when expansion is at hand.

After three years, NIT has reached that point.

Readers, please bear with us this week as much-needed improvements to NIT servers, equipment, offices, and more are completed. We hope to have the bulk of the work done by early next week. Once complete, we will deliver even more news on a daily basis.

Matt Marquardt, NIT Publisher

I want to thank all the new subscribers that are coming on board since November of last year. Due to your decision to subscribe, NIT is now able to work through this growth period and is positioned to become bigger and better. As more people from our immediate area and around the country subscribe, our ability to grow is enhanced. I predict NIT will have well over 1000 paid subscribers by the end of 2014. We will try to keep the monthly cost at $2.00 for as long as possible.  If you have not already done so, please become a paid subscriber now.

Of course, I would also like to thank the loyal advertisers on NIT. Your vision in recognizing that NIT brings thousands of readers here each day – who see your ads – has been mutually beneficial to your businesses and NIT. We will be working extremely hard after this brief upgrade period to grow our audience with you in mind.  If you are a business owner and would like a great rate on an ad for your business, please call our office at 515-897-1144 or send an email to discuss options.

A re-design of may also be in the works. Stay tuned for more on that.

Last but not least, NIT is seeking freelance writers, photographers and tipsters.  If you have an interest, please write to

      Thank you Mary. The changes will be evident in increased news stories and a potential re-design of the site. It’s a lot of work but it will be worth it. Hope all is well 🙂
