Stop the presses

Amid the frenzy of closures and cancellations of everyday life, the Telegraph has found it increasingly hard to weather the coronastorm.

Despite the support of our many awesome advertisers, who have helped keep us afloat in these difficult times, we will be taking a hiatus next week (April 2), with plans to print again April 9. Although it was a hard decision to make, it is the right thing to do considering current “stay-at-home” recommendations and the health risks to our sole delivery person (who is no spring chicken, but still looks pretty damn good for her age, if we don’t say).

But fear not faithful readers. During our week off, we will continue to update our website, www. durangotelegraph.com, regularly – probably even more so now that we’re stuck at home with nothing to do but sit around in the same ratty sweats and yell at the kids. We would also like to make a shameless plug right now for web advertising, which is dirt cheap – and talk about a captive audience!

For more information on web ads, contact our most amazing ad-itorialista, Lainie Maxson, at lainie@duranogtelegraph.com. For all other inquiries, email missy@duranogtelegraph.com.

Rest assured – the Telegraph is not going away, and we’ll see you soon. In the meantime, keep those coloring page submissions coming!

The year was 2004. George W. was president, Janet Jackson malfunctioned on TV, Lance Armstrong won his sixth Tour, Thomas the Tank rolled onto American screens and “Friends” called it a night. And FLC grad Lainie Maxson bravely stepped up to sell ads at a fledgling alt weekly, The Durango Telegraph.
