Don’t worry — We’re alive and well, thank you

-A A +A

Mark Twain may have said it best when he was attributed with saying, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”
For the past few weeks, readers of the Tri-County Bulletin, Chiefland Citizen, Williston Pioneer Sun News and Cedar Key Beacon have expressed concern over the lateness that these products have been arriving in their hands. Do not worry, these fine products are not going anywhere.
In fact, they are all alive and doing well.
What has happened, though, is that the printing press at the Chiefland Citizen has been mothballed. Based solely on business needs, the Chiefland Press Plant was consolidated with our sister press plant, only 45 minutes away. It just made good business sense.
This business decision was made in an effort to keep our ever-rising costs down and help prevent passing those costs along to the consumer.
It has not been an easy transition: We have lost members of our family here due to the consolidation; and there have been some bumps along the road, as our readers can attest. But do not worry, we are working diligently to improve that process every week until things return to normal.
We have worked long and hard to be the Tri-County’s No. 1 source of news and advertising – both in print and online – and we won’t let this bump in the road derail us.
