  • Press problems delay Friday edition of TLN

    There is a good reason your copy of The Lancaster News was late Friday morning.
    The press broke down Thursday night, so the Friday, Feb. 5, 2016, edition was printed in Greensboro, N.C.
    Some paper routes were run as scheduled, but some carrier deliveries were delayed by some four hours. The TLN circulation staff will be delivering papers throughout Friday afternoon.
