A few readers have reached out to ask “What’s with the lines in the newsprint lately?” We want you to know we’re working to fix the problem and apologize that your paper has sometimes been harder to read.
Times-News President Matt Sandberg told me Thursday that staff has worked through a process of elimination and discovered the lines are caused by a problem with our plating system, and we’re working with Kodak to get it fixed.
Plating machines use lasers, and we can’t fix it ourselves because of safety and warranty issues.
The good news is, it is fixable. We just have to wait a week or two for someone from Kodak to come to Twin Falls to fix it for us. Until then, we’re working to minimize the issue as best we can.
We appreciate your patience.
