It's time to take the reins

This week marks the my first official week as managing editor for Larson Newspapers, which encompasses the Sedona Red Rock News, Camp Verde Journal and Cottonwood Journal Extra.

I've spent the last six months learning the ropes from Publisher Bob Larson, and now the time has come for me to take the reins.

I grew up in small town in Wyoming, similar to Sedona, just south of Jackson Hole. I spent the first 18 years of my life in Lander, Wyo.; so I know what a small-town life is all about and what residents expect from their newspaper.

Readers want to see their children and neighbors in the paper alongside the local news.

As times have changed, we know people also want access to local news items on the Internet, which is why our Web sites are getting an overhaul.

From now on, if you want breaking news in Cottonwood or Camp Verde, be sure to check our Web site first for photos and up-to-date information. We've also added new features, including this blog, which are available only on the site.

At redrocknews.com, look for the addition of video to enhance our coverage on the site in the coming months.

And don't forget to use the site to submit your press releases, letters to the editor and photos you take around the communities. Part of being a community newspaper is inviting the residents to help us tell the story of our communities.

Feel free to contact me with any suggestions you have to help us bring the news to you, our loyal readers.
