Fire destroyed the building and everything inside.Thanks to some dedicated employees, they’ve managed to keep the paper going, even without a building. They’ve had the paper printed in Ellsworth.”Everybody’s done a wonderful job it’s been a great team effort.”Now they’re close to getting things back to normal.
