Conejos County Citizen closing

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that the final printed edition of the Conejos County Citizen was released Wednesday, March 25, 2020 following its more than 130-year service to the community.

“Rising costs and declining circulation have forced us to make this decision,” said Keith R. Cerny, division manager in the San Luis Valley for parent company News Media Corporation. “We hope to continue to post some news to our web site at, but more than likely those updates will be at”

Current Citizen subscribers will be given a Wednesday only subscription to the Valley Courier until their subscription expires. No refunds will be offered.

If a Citizen subscriber already receives the Courier, their subscription will be extended based on the balance owed for the Citizen subscription
