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 to celebrate the birth of our country, 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 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 take off Wednesday, July 4.
Early deadlines go into effect Tuesday, June 26, and affect the Wednesday, July 4, editions of the Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal, Cottonwood Journal Extra, and the Friday, July 6, edition of The Scene.
Our altered deadlines for the 4th of July holiday are:
For the Wednesday, July 6, Sedona Red Rock News, The Camp Verde Journal and Cottonwood Journal Extra:
■ News items — press releases and letters to the editor — due by 5 p.m., Tuesday, June 26
For the Friday, July 6, edition of The Scene:
■ News items due by 5 p.m., Friday, June 29
Our offices in Camp Verde, Sedona and Cottonwood will be closed all day July 4 and reopen Thursday, July 5.
Deadlines return to normal as of July 5.
As is always true with submissions, anything received after our deadlines won’t 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 Fourth of July.
