After a lot of talk and visits by a multitude of contractors, our newspaper is taking another step forward.
We are investing in technology that will allow us to eliminate one of the steps in getting the newspaper to you.
For many years, we have been designing the newspaper on computers, then sending those “pages” to a machine that sets them on news-page-sized film.
Then the film is used to make a thin, news-page-sized plate that attaches to the press and imprints the text and images that you see every week.
