For most of my career with the Times-Gazette, until soon after we were sold to Rust Communications, many of us had to go into the back room most afternoons to stuff advertising inserts into the mail newspapers (the carriers stuffed their own papers). When the new owners took over, some things were shifted and the news staff didn't have to do that anymore.
Today, however, they needed extra help stuffing our Celebration Souvenir Edition. The supplements, packed in plastic bags, took up so much room, and several things have been moved around, that we were in quite close quarters. But we got it all done -- it was tiring work, and it leaves your hands gray with ink.
We hope you like the supplement -- a number of people, including editor René Capley and our summer intern Dustin Bowen, worked very hard on it.
