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 time off to honor Memorial 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 Monday, May 28.
Early deadlines go into effect Wednesday, May 23, and affect the Wednesday, May 30, editions of the Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal, Cottonwood Journal Extra, and the Friday, June 1, edition of The Scene.
Our altered deadlines for the Memorial Day holiday are as follows:
For the Wednesday, May 30, Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal and Cottonwood Journal Extra:
■ Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., Thursday, May 24
■ News items — press releases and letters to the editor — due by 8 a.m., Wednesday, May 23
For the Friday, June 1, edition of The Scene:
■ Display advertisements due by 1 p.m., on Friday, May 25
■ News items due by 5 p.m., Friday, May 25
Our offices in Camp Verde, Sedona and Cottonwood will be closed all day May 28 and reopen Tuesday, May 29.
Deadlines return to normal as of May 29.
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 Memorial Day.
