Were you surprised to see the smaller size Addison Independent on newsstands Thursday? We sure were.
Unfortunately the press that normally prints the Addison Independent has been having mechanical problems off and on for the past two weeks. We had the newspaper printed at a different shop this week and, despite our best efforts, it was printed on the wrong size paper — and the normal 21-inch page was shrunk to fit. Good grief.
We knew most of our devoted readers would still want to see the paper so we distributed it as usual, though we weren’t happy with the way it looks either.
Thank you for hanging with us as we work out our printing problems. We apologize for the way it looks today, but promise to do everything we can to make sure the Addison Independent is available in its normal size next Thursday.
