Recently the Creston Valley Advance newsroom encountered a perfect storm of technical difficulties while trying to post various election stories.
Problems with central web servers caused posting problems for multiple newspapers. This resulted in many stories simply not posting. But in many other situations, the stories went online successfully but without any pictures.
Unfortunately, in Creston, the initial posting of mayoral candidate Bill Hutchinson’s story went up without his picture, although this problem was subsequently fixed.
The Creston Valley Advance posted these stories as they normally would. The issue was with website server problems outside of our control. There was no deliberate effort or conspiratorial attempt to cause any harm to any candidate’s campaign.
