Printing Problems Delay The Eagle Deliveries

By  | 

A printing problem was to blame Sunday for late home deliveries of The Eagle.

The newspaper says it experienced press difficulties overnight when the drive on the printing press stopped working.

Copies of the newspaper had to be printed in Temple, delaying home deliveries.

"You never want it to happen, but on election night when you've done so well with meeting your deadlines and your proud of the product," said The Eagle Editor-in-Chief Donnis Baggett. "It's Mother's Day on top of that so your carriers are running late, it was not a good time for it to happen if there is ever a good time for such things to happen."

All copies were delivered by Sunday afternoon.

The Eagle says everything should be running smoothly on Monday.
