Welcome to FYI Northwoods

The FYI Northwoods originated in Presque Isle in October, 1996. The focus of the tabloid style paper is to bring the news and views of the Northwoods to all the residents and visitors of the area. The paper is delivered free to every mailbox or post office box in Boulder Junction, Manitowish Waters, Presque Isle and Winchester.  The paper is also dropped off at the businesses in these towns as well as Mercer, Wisconsin, Bessemer, Michigan, and Marenisco, Michigan. Circulation is 4000 in the summer months and 3000 during the winter months. Subscriptions are available at the cost of $35 per year. The paper is published on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.


FYI Northwoods depends on display ads to pay for the publishing of the paper.  We highly encourage readers to let advertisers know they saw their ad in the FYI Northwoods.


The paper's policy is to report local events and happenings of the area. Each month features recipes, Classified Ads, school and town government issues, a monthly calendar of events for the area, business profiles, and tidbits about this and that.


I am eager to publish your story (pertaining to the area) when submitted.  Please contact me, Publisher/Owner Eric Johnson with your sale items, stories or poems, letter to the editor or advertising ads or inquiries.
