    Did you draw the art?
    The representation you posted is either shown at very low resolution or you have some serious jpg artifacting in your source material.

    And as for the design there...

    The light gray drop shadow isn't doing anything for the design.
    The green color may be just on the edge of printable in CMYK. It may appear muddier than a spot color usage.
    Is the dot supposed...

          How does it look? Is there a lot of filling of type? Are pictures muddy? If the piece looks fine, I don't see what the problem is. If it has a lot of ink coverage, the ink will come off on your fingertips. It's just the way newspapers work. How long has it been since the piece was printed?

            Newsprint is very porious paper. With alot of coverage you'll get alot of dot gain as Sience04 stated. Find out what their dpi is. It should not be more than 110dpi. If it is, then this could be the problem. It also could be why they want you to cut back your density. But maybe not. Newsprint is about the worst paper out there. Their dpi could be correct but the problem is the newsprint.

              so if their dpi is more than 110, what can i do on my end to solve the problem?

                The printer should lower their dpi (dots per inch). Which they can do either to film or plate through their imagesetters. This has nothing to do with you such as lpi or resolution etc. When looking closely at your paper, do you see a pronounced dot pattern? Does it look more like a magazine dot pattern (harder to see) or like most newspapers (larger dots)?
