A problem with the computer system that runs the presses at the Tribune-Review production facility in Marshall delayed the printing and delivery of the paper today.

Ralph Martin, president of the company, said when the motherboard that runs the presses had problems, the controls switched to a backup system, which had never been updated. That meant there was no communication between the presses and the company's main computer system.

The Tribune-Review eventually was printed on the smaller presses used to print USA Today.

USA Today also experienced circulation problems.

"Tonight we have lots of contingency plans," Mr. Martin said.
