American Press resumes printing; blog will go on

The American Press resumed publication today with a free, 12-page limited-circulation edition.

It is being printed out-of-town and placed in selected high-traffic dropoff points in our readership area.

This blog, and the American Press’ emergency site,, will continue.

The print edition of the paper is being printed via special arrangement with The Daily Advertiser of Lafayette.

An American Press crew is producing the paper at a temporary news bureau in the Advertiser’s conference room, printing it at noon and trucking it in the afternoon to various locations in Southwest Louisiana.

There also will be editions Friday and Sunday. There will be no Saturday edition. The future publication schedule has not been determined.

American Press reporters and photographers continue to cover the news throughout the area, with bureau chiefs and editors working in Lafayette, Jennings and DeRidder.

The American Press building on U.S. 90 is being repaired for roof holes and is still without power. For that reason, the advertising, classified, accounting and circulation departments remain closed. Their operations, and home delivery of the American Press, will resume as power and access permit. The regular Web site,, also is down.

The Beauregard News Bureau (462-1213) and Jeff Davis Bureau (821-5309) are open and staffed.

Readers are invited to post news, photos and comments here or send them to special e-mail address,

Display advertising questions may be directed to the Louisiana Press Association in Baton Rouge, (225) 344-9309, which is handling insertion orders and billing until the American Press business office reopens.
