Carrier 101: How the paper gets to you, and how to make for a great delivery experience
Jan 02 2013, 10:59 AM
When the bad weather starts to really hit home, that’s when nailing the newspaper porch delivery gets even more important.
This week marks the second anniversary of the Valley Record’s switch to home delivery. We used to go through U.S. mail, and the change brought new benefits and connections but also the occasional headache.
Ever wondered how newspaper delivery works? Consider this a brief lesson. Right now, the Record relies on 38 youth routes and 22 motor routes to get the paper to some 12,000 addresses. Every week, a small army of grown-ups and children, age 12 and up, form up on the Ridge and haul papers in Snoqualmie, Carnation and North Bend.

This is the 13th year for the club, advised by Peggy Filer. The seeds of the CHS RAK Club were planted in 1997 when then-teacher Kerry Gould shared a video on the dramatic impact people made by choosing to "pay it forward" with random acts of kindness.
