Due to production problems at the Statesman's remote printing plant in Nampa, delivery of the Sunday edition of the Statesman has been delayed by three hours or more.Just last week, the Idaho Statesman was bragging about their new printing arrangement:
All delivery should be complete by noon, although it could be later in outlying areas.
Because of the printing problems, some Sports and Insight pages that were intended to be in color had to be printed in black and white.
We apologize for the inconvenience. We ask for your understanding and patience as we work through the changes in the printing of the paper.
"It's great," Statesman Publisher Mi-Ai Parrish said as she studied a fresh copy.This isn't good news for The Sun News subscribers, who were just told the The Sun News will be printed in Charleston instead of Myrtle Beach.
Printing the Statesman in Nampa means better reproduction and much more color availability for readers and advertisers, Parrish said.
"It's good for everybody," she said. "It's also a newer press, so it should have much better reliability."
