[SUPER=03-Roanoke;]


The Heidelberg Mainstream press has actually produced the Neighbors section for the last four weeks. Sunday night the new equipment will "go live" to produce the Monday morning edition.
The new paper will be slightly smaller, with more color and sharper images... and editor Mike Riley also promises a redesign.

((MIKE RILEY/ROANOKE TIMES EDITOR; THE PRESS IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME DEAL. WHAT'S GOING TO BE INTERESTING TO SEE IS WHAT HAPPENS AND EVOLVES FROM THIS IN TERMS OF WHAT'S IN THE NEWSPAPER, AND I THINK THAT'S ONGOING AND EVOLUTIONARY AND THAT'S THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.))

The new press can produce 80- thousand copies an hour. Eventually, that should allow later deadlines to accomodate breaking news, and give editors more time to put the newspaper together. (------------)
