Press problems delay special Tuesday paper

pinkWe had a lot of press problems last night that delayed distribution of our special edition dedicated to the start of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The newspaper was printed on unusual pink paper, which was heavier and may have contributed to the series of breakdowns that delayed the press start by several hours. Some carriers who have day jobs had to postpone deliveries until this afternoon.
It’s too bad. The paper was terrific, loaded with many tributes to the courage of women in our community who are fighting breast cancer — and winning.
Incidentally, I learned today that it is just about impossible to use an iPhone to accurately photograph a pink newspaper. The phone’s camera feature, and the other camera apps I tried, auto-correct the color, making the newsprint appear as white as usual.
If you didn’t see the actual paper, you’ll just have to take my word for it that the newsprint was as pink as could be.
