Thursday's blizzard created all kinds of problems for travelers in northwestern Minnesota and will prevent normal delivery of Friday's print edition of the Bemidji Pioneer. The newspaper will be delivered during the day Friday as travel conditions permit. Papers that cannot be delivered on Friday will be included with Saturday's delivery, although another storm is likely as the weekend approaches. Friday's papers are expected to be available at some in-town stores by 9 a.m.
