During the holiday, which begins this week, A.M. Costa Rica staffers will be keeping a close eye on news developments to keep readers informed. News takes no holiday, nor does A.M. Costa Rica.
For example, in 2003 a major earthquake took place in the southern zone early Christmas Day, and readers need to know someone is keeping a lookout.
The paper will be published next week Monday through Thursday and resume five-day-a-week publication Jan. 2.
Most staffers will be off Friday, Dec. 23, and Friday, Dec. 30, and no newspaper will be published those days in order to conform to the established 257-day advertising commitment. The newspaper offices will be closed those days and frequently during the coming week. Internet and telephone messages will be monitored.
Coverage will include the Zapote festival all next week, the Tope Nacional that will fill San José with horses Monday and police and emergency activities.
In the event of a major news development, readers will be alerted via the daily digest and the newspaper’s Twitter account as well as the daily newspaper. Readers may sign up for the daily digest HERE and for Twitter messages HERE!
