Your Views: She appreciates efforts of newspaper carriers

It was a good idea for The Gazette delivery person to invite disgruntled customers to ride along on the route (letter, Page 4A, Jan. 31).

I can imagine delivery problems: weather, early hours, car problems, eccentricities of customers and pay scale.

An older friend threatened to cancel because the paper was under the shrubs. I suggested that she make friends with the delivery person because it may pay off in more than one way—especially for older people. I am on a first-name basis with my carrier.

I send both Gazette and Wisconsin State Journal delivery people large tips in December, January and February. They have been diligent in getting the paper by the door so I don’t fall on the ice and snow.
