The Manhattan Mercury's printing press is one of four left in the state of Kansas. Four men operate the press throughout the week, printing not only the Mercury but the Smoke Signal, the Fort Riley Post, the Junction City Daily Union and others. Most printing presses in this day and age are ran by computers and have minimal hands on maintenance. Here in Manhattan Kansas, these pressmen are working the same way pressmen did back in the 70's. “This is the old school way of printing. There is more pride in the challenge of running this press and keeping up with today’s papers," said Michael Eutsey, one of the Mercury's pressmen.
