Lincoln News Puts out First Issue Since Fire 

Folks waiting for their weekly issue of the Lincoln News can expect to have it in their hands by late afternoon or early evening Thursday.Publisher Kevin Tenggren says even though fire destroyed their building last week, there was never a doubt they wouldn’t put an issue out for this week.Tenggren says they have had a few problems with the computer system, but have been able to pull through.They have sent the paper digitally to the Ellsworth American, where the paper will continue to be published until a new Lincoln News building is up and running.” Oh it means a lot to us. We’ve put a lot of work into this. It’s been a nonstop working since last Thursday to this Thursday. We worked all weekend, countless hours. A lot of thanks to my staff. They’ve done a great job.”Tenggren says as soon as the insurance is settled, they’ll demolish the burned out building, and rebuild in the same spot.
