From time to time, youâ€™ll notice a small star at the top of some pages of The Eagle, such as Thursdayâ€™s 1A. On the chance that youâ€™re wondering why itâ€™s there, Iâ€™ll solve the mystery for you: The star means that the page changed after it first went to press.
In the case of the Thursday edition, one of the people checking the first papers off the press noticed that the Rev. Titus Jamesâ€™ first and last names were transposed in one place.
We fixed the error and sent a new page, with the star, to the press. Thatâ€™s where the starâ€™s true purpose comes into play.
When we make new pages, what has changed often isnâ€™t obvious. The star tells the press operators which page is the most current.
