Sometime in the middle of the night the McKinleyville Press rolled off the presses at Western Web, a company owned by the pressmen who operate the machinery and sweep the floors out near the old pulp mill in Fairhaven. The papers were stacked on a pallet, ready for the morning crew.
Right now the paper is going through the ink jet machine that puts the addresses on the subscriber copies. If all g…oes well, and the mighty McK Press doesn’t jam up the machinery, the paper will be ready for delivery in about an hour.
I’ll pick them up and deliver papers to locations in Eureka. Then subscriber copies will be dropped at the Arcata Post Office for next-day delivery. I’ll wind my way through Arcata, dropping off papers at retail locations and filling newspaper racks.
Then I’ll make my way to McKinleyville, dart out to Fieldbrook, then go up to Trinidad. If all goes well, by 4 p.m. the McK Press will be available at the locations on this link. – Jack
