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 day off to celebrate Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 24, 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, press release and column deadlines up to make sure we get your advertisement or news item before we are ready to put the paper together.

Thanksgiving represents our longest stretch of early deadlines extending throughout an entire week and affecting nearly every person who contributes to the newspaper.

Early deadlines go into effect Wednesday, Nov. 16, and affect the Wednesday, Nov. 23, editions of the Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal, Cottonwood Journal Extra, and the Friday, Nov. 25, edition of The Scene and the Sedona Red Rock News.

Our altered deadlines for Thanksgiving are:

For the Wednesday, Nov. 23, Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal and Cottonwood Journal Extra

  • Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 17

  • Classified advertisements due by 3 p.m., Friday, Nov. 18

  • News items — press releases, columns and letters to the editor — due by 8 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 16

For the Friday, Nov. 25, edition of The Scene

  • Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 18
  • News items due by 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 18

For the Friday, Nov. 25, edition of the Sedona Red Rock News

  • Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., Monday, Nov. 21
  • Classified advertisements due by 3 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 22
  • News items due by Monday, Nov. 21, at 8 a.m.

Our offices in Camp Verde, Sedona and Cottonwood will be closed all day Thursday, Nov. 24, and reopen Friday, Nov. 25.

Deadlines return to normal as of Nov. 25.

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, columns, 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 Thanksgiving.
