Today’s newspaper is the last one this week that will be produced on a regular schedule. Friday’s and Monday’s papers will be produced early. The reason for this hurry-up schedule is that we are moving Thursday and Friday.

At 2 p.m Thursday the computers and phones will be shut down and will be moved to our new office at 2889 Ray Lawyer Dr.
The plan is to have the phones back on Friday, some time in the afternoon. Our photographers will likely be out and about long before the phones are back on — once they get their studio and photo desk moved and set up in the new building.
Without landline phones and e-mail, everyone will be taking advantage of the news blackout to move and set up their desks, set up the library, collection of old bound copies and microfilm, rain gauge, film and photo CD files, clip files and myriad other valuable and historical files.
There’s a lot to a newspaper operation, from ad sales reps to graphics, to accounting and circulation, plus the publisher, who has to know about every department and has planned the new building.
You can reach us Thursday until 2 p.m. After that, as they used to say on the long-running TV series MASH, “It’s time to bug out.”
