The Odessa Record -

Mail delivery disruptions


Late papers and missing papers were reported to The Record in large numbers the past two weeks. Especially hard hit were the communities of Ephrata and Moses Lake. We are not sure what happened to those errant newspapers. They left our premises on Wednesday afternoon of both weeks, in time for the mail truck to take them to their next destination.

No names were removed from the database for late payment, since we ourselves have struggled to get our renewal notices out on time. We try our very best to provide ample notice to all of our subscribers before assuming that lack of payment means they don’t want to receive the paper any more.

We know the post office is extremely busy with holiday packages, greeting cards and general mail. But please call them anyway and let them know that you are missing your paper. We pay the USPS close to $200 every week to make sure you get your paper delivered to your mailbox or directly to your home. When you are dissatisfied with the service, they need to hear about it.

We have spare issues, so if you are in Odessa over the holidays for any reason, stop in and pick up your missing copy or copies.

Next week, The Record will begin running its annual synopsis of the year just past, as well as a listing of those who departed from this life in 2016.
