When a heavy storm passed through DuBois, Pa. this summer, many streets and homes were damaged from floodwaters, but that didn’t stop Courier-Express carrier Ralph Anders from doing his job. Publisher Devin Hamilton said a subscriber sent a photo of Anders delivering papers in knee-length water with a note that she was surprised to get the paper that day. “I saw a lot of teamwork that day,” Hamilton said. “Ralph was a great example of that.” According to circulation manager James Nestlerode, Anders delivers 70 papers on his route and has been delivering the paper for the publication for six years.
