The holiday season is almost here and The Sentinel is kicking it off with the biggest newspaper of the year.

Thursday’s paper will weigh in at more than 3 pounds and be packed with Black Friday deals from local and national retailers.

Here is what will be included:

20 flyers from national retailers including Target, Walmart and Kohl’s

A 12-page holiday gift guide showcasing great gift ideas from local retailers

A special 12-page Small Business Saturday section sponsored by the Downtown Carlisle Association that highlights the tremendous small businesses from communities across the county

All the local and national news and sports coverage that you have come to expect.

On top of the tremendous additions mentioned above, we are also working on our annual ThanksGIVEaway contest. One lucky winner among all Lee Enterprises newspapers will win $5,000. Locally, The Sentinel will award three $100 gift cards. Details of the contest will be included in special advertisements throughout the Thanksgiving Day edition.

If you are a digital-only subscriber to The Sentinel we would hate for you to miss out, so we will stock extra copies at local grocery and convenience stores that are open Thanksgiving Day.

If you are a print-only subscriber and haven’t signed up for digital access (included in your print subscription price), you may not realize what you are missing. Digital access allows you to connect to The Sentinel and your community anytime, anywhere with any device. Going to Grandma’s house for the holidays? No problem. We go with you on your phone, computer or tablet.

Activating your digital access is easy. Simply visit and follow the onscreen instructions.

This is an exciting time of the year and we’re thankful for the readers and businesses we serve. Best wishes from our family to yours for a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Kim Kamowski is the interim publisher of The Sentinel
