No Observer January 1

  • Dec. 31, 2008 11:00 a.m.

For the first time in almost 40 years, the Observer will not appear in its paper version this week. Because of serious problems with our printing press, we were unable to print the paper on Tuesday as we normally do. It was not for lack of trying. Dianne and I were here until 10 pm on the snowiest night of 2008, hoping against hope that we were just one adjustment away from being able to print. It was not to be. We ran out of time. Our solution is to post all of the news content of the paper to this web site. It’s here now and will stay until Monday. And next week, we will include the January 1 edition with the January 8, so you won’t miss a thing. We take seriously our mission to get the paper to you each week. It is a minor miracle that we have been able to do so for as long as we have. But this week, our luck ran out. We’re sorry, but we know we’ll be back to normal next week.Jeff and Dianne KingCo-PublishersThe Observer
