Wow…that was a long one. A record of sorts. Eight hours of no News Lincoln County! We, like any other website, rely on a web server…our’s based in Orange County in Southern California.
They had a massive power failure in the area at 3:15 Tuesday afternoon. Although they got their power back within an hour, the outage caused internal damage to the server farm’s system. That’s what took the other six hours.

Stories are being written and will be posted in time for the morning review.
