Set up database to send email to staff member before deadline

I am completely stuck! I have created a Notes database that is a client tracker so staff can see deadlines for the client. However, I want to setup the database so it sends an e-mail to a staff member a week before the deadline.
You could either use an agent using the Notes Newsletter feature in Simple Actions, or write a LotusScript agent like the following... If you have access to create scheduled agents on your mail-enabled server, you can create an agent that will perhaps get a NotesDocumentCollection using NotesDatabase.Search([date]). You can then iterate through that collection and for each document you want to send a reminder, create a new NotesDocument object and call its send method using the username of the recipient for that document.
