Reporter for The Post-Star, covering the city of Glens Falls, town and village of Lake George and northern Warren County communities.

It is popular in the news business to do countdowns of the top stories. The Post-Star will be publishing recaps of some of the top stories of the year. Starting today and continuing until the end of 2017, I will be counting down the top stories on the city beat.

No: 10. End of an era:

This story hits close to home. The Post-Star presses went silent after the Oct. 23 was printed. After repeated mechanical breakdowns, the management of the Lee Enterprises-owned publication decided to start printing off site. It entered into a contract with The Daily Gazette in Schenectady

It has been a little bit of a learning curve. Printing the paper in Schenectady has meant earlier deadlines for news copy and a tighter time frame for the carriers to deliver the paper. The transition has not been entirely smooth.

Among the advantages is the newer press of the Gazette allows for a crisper print product and color photographs on every page.

The Post-Star began in 1909 when The Morning Post acquired The Morning Star.

The Iowa-based Lee Enterprises acquired the paper after merging with Howard Publications.
