Press problems plague Post Independent |

Press problems plague Post Independent

Due to a major problem with our printing press in Gypsum, there were major problems with today’s Post Independent ” as you probably noticed.

With the way the press is configured, when the problems occurred very early this morning ” between 1-4 a.m. ” the decision was made to remove eight pages from today’s PI. The largest the PI could be with the press problems was 24 pages.

This led to a very strange paper that was missing our weekly Education page, our daily opinion page, and our Community pages, which included several obituaries announcing service times. The comics, puzzles and horoscope also were eliminated to meet the 24 page limit.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this situation created.

The story headlined “EnCana fined for contaminating water wells” was also cut off and will run in its entirety tomorrow. The related story, “COGCC delays moratorium decision,” that was supposed to run on page 2, also was cut due to the press problems. Both stories appear in full on this Web site.

The situation was a mess, and the press crew in Gypsum did the best job possible under very difficult circumstances. Unfortunately, the result was a very ugly paper missing some vital things.

At this time we are still waiting to see if the press is repaired and back to full capacity allowing us to print more than 24 pages.

Our plan is to include in Wednesday’s PI all the things that were missing today.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact 945-8515, ext. 517;

Thanks for you patience.
