We can't chalk it up to a full moon or it being Friday the 13th. Suffice it to say, Wednesday was a bad day at the Peninsula Clarion.
About 4,000 Clarion subscribers received a newspaper minus the Sports section Thursday morning. That's because when the Sports pages were being printed, the press experienced meltdown complete with burning oil and a grinding gear. In 25 years of running presses, our production director has never seen anything like it. There was no quick fix to the problem, so the decision was made to deliver the newspaper complete or not.
The Sports pages are an integral part of the Clarion. If you were one of the subscribers who didn't receive that section of the paper Thursday morning, please give our circulation department a call at 283-3584 so you can receive credit for Thursday's newspaper. If you bought your Clarion from a rack or dealer and it didn't include the Sports section, we are happy to either refund your money or exchange Thursday's paper for today's. Just bring Thursday's paper by the Clarion's office, 150 Trading Bay Road in Kenai.
The press is currently undergoing repairs and the plan is to have it up and running in time to print Sunday's newspaper. Meanwhile, today's Clarion was printed in Anchorage. That means earlier than normal deadlines, so some news you might expect to see in today's paper isn't included.
Thanks for reading the Clarion, and thanks for understanding that things don't always run smoothly.
