SKELETON STAFF: Lean staff produces newspaper; mass distribution curtailed

COLUMBIA CITY – Despite deep drifting snow and sub-zero temperatures, a skeleton staff of news and pressroom workers were able to produce Monday’s Post & Mail.Although most businesses in Whitley County were closed due to the severe weather conditions, Post & Mail staffers – with the help of snowplows – were able to get to the newspaper’s Connexion Way business and press facility to produce today’s edition.Distribution, however, is an entirely different matter.Although select dealers and news racks were expected to be delivered Monday, the vast majority of subscribers will not be delivered.Expectations are that Monday’s newspaper will be delivered with Tuesday’s in those cases.Meanwhile, readers can keep abreast of essential local news by visiting The Post & Mail’s website at and by keeping in contact on Facebook.
