We appreciate your patience and understanding as we muddle through these new challenges. Due to the sudden closure of the printing plant in Shawano, Wisconsin, The Norway Current suddenly found themselves without a printer. This information was relayed to the paper late Tuesday afternoon. Finding another printing facility, within our budget has dictated we make some changes to the size of our paper. In addition, we are certain there will be bugs that need to be ironed out as we move forward. We have had to cram days of work into a matter of hours, and therefore, ask that you try to be patient as we iron out the bumps. We would also like to state that none of the issues we may face is a reflection of our new printing facility, The Daily Globe of Ironwood, Michigan. They have been truly wonderful and accommodating, and have gone out of their way to help resolve this problem. We can’t thank them enough, especially on such short notice. In the months to come, we will make adjustments to how we format the paper, and will continue to bring you a superior product for which you are accustomed. Some of the changes will undoubtedly be well beyond anyone’s control. We are doing our level best to make lemonade out of the lemons we were handed!
