The holidays mean KPA and KPS will be adjusting schedules over the next couple of weeks.
KPA CENTRAL OFFICE SCHEDULE
KPA Central Offices will be closed Friday, December 22 and Monday, December 25 for Christmas. Then the following week, KPA will close by noon on Friday, December 29, and will be closed all day Monday, January 1. We’ll reopen on Tuesday, January 2, just in time to welcome the 2018 Kentucky General Assembly (not really).
KENTUCKY PRESS NEWS SERVICE
KPNS will be taking a holiday Christmas week. There will be one budget on Sunday, December 24 and then KPNS will be dark until Sunday, December 31, with one budget scheduled. There will be no stories or editorials posted during the week. It will return to a normal schedule the first week of January.
STATEWIDE CLASSIFIEDS AND ARK NETWORK

ON SECOND THOUGHT
Your early Christmas present is a Friday without On Second Thought on December 22. The office is closed and I could do it in advance but I need to focus next week on getting all the contest results in a format that I can notify newspapers of staff winners. And then there’s assigning times to specific programs for the 2018 KPA Winter Convention.
So unless something major develops, you’ll get a respite until Friday, December 29, from On Second Thought. Enjoy!!
