While the news never sleeps, takes a holiday or goes on vacation, those who bring it to you do.
Larson Newspapers will give its busy employees a time off to celebrate Labor Day, which means we’ll be working double-time beforehand to make that possible.
As the pace in our newsroom pushes full-steam ahead, we ask the public to do its best to keep up with us.
We’ve moved our display advertising and news deadlines up to make sure we get your advertisement or news item well before we are ready to put the paper together.
Our staff will be off and our offices closed Monday, Sept. 3.
Early deadlines go into effect Thursday, Aug. 30, and affect the Wednesday, Sept. 5, editions of the Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal, Cottonwood Journal Extra, and the Friday, Sept. 7, edition of The Scene.
Our altered deadlines for the Labor Day holiday are:
For the Wednesday, Sept. 5, Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal and Cottonwood Journal Extra
■ News items — press releases and letters to the editor — due by 8 a.m., Wednesday, Aug. 29
■ Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 30
■ Classified advertisements due by 3 p.m., Friday, Aug. 31
For the Friday, Sept. 7, edition of The Scene
■ Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., Friday, Aug. 31
■ News items due by 5 p.m., Friday, Aug. 31
Our offices in Camp Verde, Sedona and Cottonwood will be closed all day Sept. 3 and reopen Tuesday, Sept. 4.
Deadlines return to normal as of Wednesday, Sept. 5.
As is always true with submissions, anything received after our deadlines will likely not appear in the newspaper.
Around a holiday more than ever it’s important to get your advertisements, press releases and letters to the editor in early so they have a better chance of making it into print.
We thank you for your cooperation and wish you a happy and safe Labor Day.
