For seven-plus years, my work night ended when the first newspapers rolled off the presses.
Many nights, I had to make a quick review of headlines to make sure there were no major mistakes - or else we'd have to stop the presses.
Then I'd leave through the parking lot full of people waiting to drive copies of the paper to their home areas.
In a few months, that press will go silent.
It's happened at papers around the country, and now it's come to Bluefield.
