Very impressive.

Could we have the names and articles of each winner, for all newspapers? As well as all others who were entered.

Thanks a lot of very good work.

Sorry. That last sentence should read:

Thanks a lot for very good work.

I wonder how they scored on home delivery reliability or quality?? Hmmmmmm??

I will say that LJW has usually been pretty quick to respond to my requests regarding customer service, however their latest move to raise the cost of home delivery by $5 a month to "guarantee porch delivery" is a bad move in my opinion. This past Friday my paper was delivered to the sidewalk per their new policy, and due to the heavy winds, it got blown across the street. Had it been delivered next to the house (I don't care to have it delivered to the porch) this would not have happened. Can't wait for the wind to take it further down the street as well...

All this looks like to me is creating a generation of paper carriers who don't give a damn where the paper is delivered or take a little pride in their work.

Paper touts paper. Nice. The LJW like many companies haven't figured out that company marketers or the industry club houses don't decide if they are good or have world class service. The customers decide that. Seems to me that in light of the long list of fowl ups and poor business moves including how they roll out those moves to their customers means they have their work cut out for them. It is very hard to impress customers when the ones that needed impressed the most are no long doing business with them.
