Newspaper Welcomes Its New Addition

There's a new addition to a long-time East Texas newspaper.

Thursday, The Lufkin Daily News showed off its new printing press. The 2.6 million dollar machine, which includes a modernized packaging facility completed last year, replaced the press the paper had been using since 1984.

The new press means better quality and color of newsprint.

About 1,500 tons of newsprint will roll through the Lufkin Daily's new press each year.
