By DAVID C. SULLIVAN The Star Press • June 15, 2018 11:07:23More than two decades ago, the star press started as a simple paper in the backroom of a restaurant.
It was a small print-only operation, but the concept was revolutionary: Instead of printing a few hundred papers each week, the press would instead print hundreds of pages a day.
It wasn’t a radical idea, as many people would later learn.
What’s more, it was a revolutionary way to make money.
In 1978, the Star Press was sold to a local paper publisher, and now, with the help of a generous foundation, it’s been printing more than 5,000 articles a day since.
It’s an enterprise that thrives on its small print and is constantly looking to expand its audience, and the Star’s business has become a cornerstone of the community around it.
But the story of the Star, which launched as a small-press paper in 1982, has been anything but a straightforward one.
In fact, the paper’s story has often veered into dark territory.
In 1999, it published a series of articles detailing the sexual abuse and murder of a 16-year-old girl by two high school boys.
The paper’s front-page splashline was that the boys had committed the crime because they wanted to have sex with her.
A year later, after the story had gone national, the family of the girl died in a car crash.
In 2004, the publisher was forced to shut down after a federal judge found it had engaged in “fraudulent misrepresentation” in the case.
The Star Press survived these crises.
It survived the lawsuits and public outcry that came after the girl’s death, and it thrived, publishing more than 500 articles a week.
In the years that followed, the organization built a strong community of dedicated volunteers who helped the paper expand its print operation, and over the years it has continued to grow its circulation.
In a few years, however, the stories it published would have become a story of its own, and one that would become a catalyst for many other news outlets to consider the Star.
In 2016, for instance, the local newspaper in Highland County, Texas, was forced by the owner to shut the paper down because of allegations that the paper had covered up the murders of two teenage girls.
The newspaper’s founder, Jim Johnson, was fired and his wife, Gloria, was arrested.
(Gloria Johnson pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.)
The paper’s owner, James K. Johnson, told the Star he was not interested in continuing the business of running the paper.
Instead, he would try to make a profit.
In an effort to survive, the newspaper decided to sell its print operations to a newspaper publisher called Wine Press.
Wine Press had the resources to invest in its printing operations, and Johnson agreed to help the company do so.
The business began as a local newspaper.
It had a few staffers, but they were not paid a salary, and their jobs were largely unpaid.
The owner hired a print printing staff of 10 people.
The press also employed a sales and marketing department.
But as Wine Press expanded, the business grew.
In 2014, Wine Press moved into a larger space in the same building.
Wine Pressed was a separate company, and Wine Press made $40,000 in sales that year.
The business expanded from that point on, and by 2019, Wine Pushed was the largest newspaper in the county.
The paper started out small, but by 2017, it grew to a print circulation of about 1,500,000.
The next year, it expanded again.
In 2018, WinePressed moved into its own building.
This time, the space was larger.
WinePushed’s print circulation reached 2,400,000, but its business grew even faster.
By 2020, Winepressed was the most popular newspaper in Texas.
The print circulation had grown by more than 40,000 readers a day, and its print business had grown from $2,500 to more than $30,000 a day in sales.
The newsroom had grown to a roomier one.
The staff had grown too.
But in the midst of all of this growth, WinePress faced a challenge.
Its staff, now more than 100, was only paid a small stipend.
The owners had to cut their payroll, but in order to do so, they needed to cut back on some of the other benefits that their employees had enjoyed.
To do this, they had to trim benefits and work hours.
The newsroom also faced an even bigger challenge: It needed to hire more employees.
The average number of full-time employees at Wine Press was 15.
The rest of the staff was only full-timers.
The job cuts had forced Wine Press to
