To reduce risks to our employees, The Banner-Independent office in Booneville will be closed to the public beginning March 19, 2020

Our employees will continue their work to get important information out to the community, and customers can reach our office by phone and email. We will continue to publish a paper weekly and provide our readers with news and information just like we have done since 1898. Our coverage of COVID-19 will be posted on our website,, as soon as possible and updated throughout the day.

It is never easy to deny access to our business, a community business, but these are unprecedented times and require unprecedented decisions.

To reach our office, call 662-728-6214

For subscription or delivery service, call 662-728-6214, or email

News tips can be emailed to

Thank you for continued support of the Banner-Independent.
