Schedule change for Guttenberg Press

By Shelia Tomkins

Press readers who are accustomed to picking up their weekly issue on Tuesday morning or early afternoon will now have to wait until late Tuesday afternoon to catch up on the news.

Effective with last week's issue, The Press began being printed at Graphics, Inc. in Calmar. Since 1999 The Press has been printed at Mississippi Valley Printers, Inc., in Prairie du Chien, Wis., but the closing of that plant has necessitated the move.
