Good-bye Wednesday editions of the Valley Record

Everything changes, eventually, but this week, everything really is changing at the Valley Record. We have published our last Wednesday edition — the one you’re reading right now — and are about to embark on the adventure of Friday publishing.

With luck, this won’t seem like a momentous change at all to you, but to us, it will mean new deadlines, new hours, and a whole new vocabulary. Mondays have always been production days in the almost seven years I’ve been at the Record, the day we build the bulk of the paper. Long holiday weekends and early deadlines have usually meant that Fridays were our production days (Mondays). Now, though, Tuesday is going to be our Monday, and this change will be permanent. You can see how it’s going to be confusing for a while.

Our readers won’t have to worry about such niggling details, though. All you, dear readers, have to do is what you’ve always done, just a day or so later.

Look for your paper Thursday evening instead of Wednesday morning; most papers should be delivered Thursday, although our official publication date will be Friday.

Send in your news items or advertising on Mondays instead of Fridays. The new deadlines are 10 a.m. for ads, noon for press releases, calendar items, sports scores, and so on.

If you have a question, story idea, complaint or even a compliment, don’t wait for a deadline, just give us a call at 425-888-2311, send me an email at, or stop by our office, 8124 Falls Avenue, across River Street from Carmichaels.

And whenever you want to see what we’ve been doing, no matter what day of the week it is, check out our website,

Happy reading.
