    Hello, I would like to know why the carriers can't seem to put paper in slot under my mailbox as I requested. I have asked each one to please do this and they say that they are just filling in. My paper is toosed on porch and steps even when raining. I don't especially enjoy trying to read wet papers, Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

  • We did not recieve our newspaper today. It was for January 6th. We live on 935 Wayne Avenue.


  • Well you screwed up on the photo on your front page article of Noah Karascon the driver in the photo on the golf cart is Logen Neidhardt who is Noah's best friend and classmate. If you people don't know who someone is ask.

  • How do i put a vacation hold on the paper?

  • I didn't receive my paper yesterday 6/24

  • What were you thinking by downsizing the TV Weekly Magazine ?  My goodness, we cannot even read it, the letters are so small.  I do not know who thought that this was  a good idea, but you may as well leave  it out of the Sunday Paper, as much as I care.  I know that we are "older", but I think this would be hard to read by anyone.    I guess we will have to buy the Toledo Blade on Sunday's in order to get a decent TV Schedule.    Thanks for reading my input.
