*New Feature for Barker- Rotating Image on the Website for $30

When you place an ad in The Barker you can purchase an additional
ad to go on the Rotating Images on the home page of the website. 
One rotating image for each full-page ad in The Barker.  Both should
be reserved at the same time

The advertiser must get their rotating images camera ready. Ad should
meet the following requirements:
