  • Fire can ruin the best plans

    This week marks the second week that a fire has disrupted our newspaper production schedule. Regular readers of the Spencer Magnet are aware that last week, a fire at our plant in Shepherdsville required us to produce the paper several hours away in Tell City, Indiana.
    Because of the change, we were required to print only one section of the newspaper. The distance also disrupted our normal smooth delivery schedule resulting in late arrivals for most people’s newspaper last week.
