Hol­i­day al­most here as Santa ready for mid­night ride this com­ing week

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff re­ports

Christ­mas is al­most here in Polk County, which means that last minute prepa­ra­tions are hap­pen­ing all over to get ready for the gath­er­ing of fam­ily and friends, and for Santa’s big ride.

So once again this week, read­ers in­clud­ing St. Nick up at the North Pole are able to find out what Polk County’s lit­tle ones want this hol­i­day sea­son. Those can be found on Page A8 this week as last minute let­ters were turned in as late as last Fri­day to be pub­lished in the Stan­dard Jour­nal.

Ad­di­tion­ally, take note that this week dead­lines are a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. We’re ask­ing all our le­gal and clas­si­fied cus­tomers to please have in­for­ma­tion and pay­ment into the Stan­dard Jour­nal of­fice by to­day at noon if they want it in the fi­nal edi­tion of 2018 to come out on Christ­mas Day for most of our cus­tomers, and the fol­low­ing day for the rest who get the pa­per by mail.

For those who need to run ad­ver­tis­ing on Jan­uary 2, 2019, we’re also ask­ing they please come in on Dec. 26 to place an ad­ver­tise­ment. Of­fice hours on Christ­mas Eve will be lim­ited from 8 to noon, and we won’t open again un­til Dec. 26 at 10 a.m.

Also please note that af­ter New Year’s Day, we won’t open again un­til 10 a.m. on Jan. 2. We ask all those who want to get an item into the pa­per to plan ac­cord­ingly, and get in touch with us in the of­fice as soon as pos­si­ble.

Next Tues­day will also see city and county of­fices closed, the courts closed, most of the stores around town and much more.

Also take note that this week­end’s Christ­mas Back Home con­cert is com­ing up in Cedar­town on Satur­day start­ing at 7 p.m., along with plenty of other events and ser­vices through the hol­i­days at lo­cal churches. Check our com­mu­nity cal­en­dar on Page A12 for a fuller list­ing of what ser­vices are hap­pen­ing and when.

We thank all of our read­ers for their con­tin­ued sup­port dur­ing the hol­i­days, and wish all a Merry Christ­mas and Happy New Year.
