Tempory office at JEMC

Mainstreet Newspapers staff are working from a room at Jackson EMC in Jefferson following a fire at the newspaper office on Lee St. that happened the night of Feb. 8. 

The phone call last Thursday was one that nobody wants to get.

"There's a fire in the office!"

So sorry for this unnecessary disruption and safety infraction. Seems like the company that made the mistake needs to pay for the whole fiasco. That is what insurance is for. And you shouldn't have to sue them to get restitution; they should just pay willingly.
