FTLComm - Tisdale - September 11, 1998

The Tisdale Record has transferred its operations to the Commercial Block across from the Medical and Dental offices in Downtown Tisdale. The premise formerly occupied by the regional college is spacious and provides this busy operation a whole new work environment. The newspaper business is driven by deadlines and the move and development of the new facility will take time as plans are to replace the web printing press with a new one, but for now the old one seen at the bottom of this page will keep doing its duty until is replacement is installed in the new building.

For now it is work as usual with no special grand opening party planned.

Some of the older equipment is being shuffled off as seen below.
The competition in our area is extreme with Melfort, Tisdale and Nipawin all vying for the market place and having to deal with Prince Albert's Booster and the St. Brieux publication. Weekly news papers in Saskatchewan have become the only real news source available since the major dailies are all owned by major chains. The once reliable dailies now have only skeleton staffs and rely heavily upon their national feed of news to fill their pages. This means the burden of getting Saskatchewan's story out rests on the scores of great Saskatchewan weeklies. This expansion of the Recorder is a positive move for Tisdale and the Recorder subscribers.
