“We know there are going to be delays,” said News-Gazette Circulation Director Pete Jones. “We will do the best we can. The weather assures that many of our deliveries will be behind schedule.”
Jones said he is asking his carriers and drivers to be safe as they bring newspapers to homes and businesses across Central Illinois.
“We want our carries and drivers to be safe, and we are asking for everyone’s patience,” Jones said. “It is challenging to get to places under these conditions, and it is no different for the newspaper carriers. Deliveries will be made as soon as weather conditions permit.”
