Appreciates paper carriers



Recently, I received a Christmas Card from my Augusta Chronicle news carrier. I wonder how many of us really appreciate the service they provide. They work early mornings, 365 days a year - rain, snow or sleet. Many have other jobs, so they must get up way before dawn to deliver the newspapers to their customers.

Many of them live on Social Security, and this supplements their income. If every customer would add just one extra dollar to their monthly bills, this would give them a little Christmas bonus and, for many, this extra dollar may bring joy to their families.

When we are opening our Christmas gifts on Christmas morning, these faithful men and women will be out delivering the news to you and to me. Let us show them we do appreciate their service.
