J-W carriers still trying to deliver newspapers

December 26, 2009

As the snow continues to fall, many Lawrence Journal-World newspaper subscribers are still without Friday and Saturday newspaper.

Chris Bell, J-W circulation manager, said many carriers were still attempting to make deliveries as of Saturday afternoon.

"Although some streets are cleared, our carriers and employees have become stuck on other city and county roads," he explained. "In addition, some carriers have had difficulties getting to the LJW to deliver."

Bell apologized for the inconvenience and said more routes were completed today than yesterday and he expected that pattern to continue into Sunday.

I would rather read the news online than have my carrier risk injury or frostbite. I can wait.

Is beginning to wonder if we will get a paper at all. Friday - I completely understand. Saturday - Ok I'll give you that one. But still no paper on Sunday. Our road and the surrounding roads have been plowed since early Saturday morning. I know there are some bad roads out there, we were out Friday and yesterday. It wasn't easy but we were able to get around.

We couldn't get out of our own driveway on Saturday because our street wasn't plowed until after noon. But man it was nice to get out for awhile then.
