No matter how low the temperature drops or how much snow or ice covers the region, one group of folks are guaranteed to not get a day off – newspaper carriers.
“Carriers never get a snow day,” said Margaret Gotschall, circulation director for Record Publishing Co., noting this past winter was a tough one for delivery personnel.
Gotschall oversees 245 routes covered by 97 carriers for RPC’s eight weekly papers. Each carrier has a deadline which must be met, depending on the day the paper comes out.
