Barbara Wurtzel: Two special Gazette’s carriers

Published: 7/18/2021 7:02:49 PM

Yesterday my husband and I received a major announcement from our long time Daily Hampshire Gazette carriers. Jonathan and Ellen Weinmann. They have been our carriers since 2009, and Jonathan worked by himself from 2002-2008.

In all that time, they have taken only two days off. The thousands of papers we received often came as early as 5:30 a.m.

They were delivered dry, secured with rubber bands, and were placed quite literally on our doorstep. The United States Post Office could take a lesson from them.

Next Friday, July 9 will be the last newspaper delivery from their hands. I am writing to praise and thank the Weinmanns publicly. They deserve recognition.

Though another carrier will no doubt be assigned this route, they can’t fully replace the Weinmanns.
