Today’s front page of the Bangor Daily News is in black and white, much like the view out most of our readers’ windows. Eliminating color and performing editorial and production activities around power failures were just two steps taken Thursday to ensure the newspaper was published.
Thursday’s ice storm caused two lengthy power outages and repeatedly threatened to curtail operations at the NEWS’ Main Street offices in Bangor and its production facilities in Hampden.
Today’s edition will not be delivered by carrier or motor route or outside dealers, but copies are available at the NEWS offices on Main Street and at some newsstands in Bangor.
The NEWS apologizes for the limited availability of today’s paper and for any inconvenience it caused our readers and advertisers.
