Glass Issues

Help please. I am working on a product design for work. It is in most restaurants. It sits on the table has a piece of paper in between 2 pieces of acrylic. It usually shows the specials. Anyway, the modeling came out great, however when I place a white plain (paper with special on it) in between the 2 pieces of acrylic I made, the paper looks grey.

I am also getting the ground reflection real heavy in the glass which I don’t want as it makes the paper look transparent. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
