Grand Forks Gazette staff were hard at work delivering papers to businesses and residents around town as part of carrier appreciation day on Thursday.

Reporter Craig Lindsay was overheard saying: Where’s Dr. Gregory’s office? He gets two papers. He should be right next to the post office!

After much deliberation and consultation, the substitute carrier eventually found Dr. Gregory’s office, which is across the street from the post office.

“After that, it was a snap,” he said. “Except I ran out of papers. But Della (production manager Mallette) had extras so it worked out.”

After taking an hour and a half to do a 20 minute route, Lindsay, along with the other staff members, were very appreciative of the fine work that our delivery people do week in and week out, through all kinds of weather.
