This issue of the Cranbrook Daily Townsman and Kimberley Daily Bulletin is literally hot off the press. After months of renovations, construction and general tinkering, our new GOSS Community Web Offset Press is officially in action, printing copies of the Townsman, Bulletin, Fernie Free Press and Creston Valley Advance, with more to follow. It replaces an aging Harris V15, which had been faithfully printing your papers for more than 35 years. In this picture from Friday, February 1, press operator Dave Wendell sees to the machinery’s first run: the Free Press’s winter supplement.
