My wife would still like to get it, but we cancelled because they kept forgetting to deliver, and they don't have much except on Wed. and Sun. So we dropped it and just buy the issues we want.

Also slow delivery service. We placed a sizeable order with them back in 1992 and still waiting for delivery.

We still get the AZ Republic newspaper delivered seven days a week. Out here, they do not deliver it up to your front door. Instead it is delivered by an adult delivery contractor who does his/her route by car, and it gets tossed onto our driveway. My [special needs] brother brings it in, and my 95-year old mother is the first to read it. Since she has lost most of her hearing, she no longer watches television, so the paper is her main news source and she looks forward to seeing it each morning. After she is done with it, my brother reads it, and after him, there are three more adults who can take a look at it. My 25-year old daughter grabs the coupon section that comes in the Sunday paper and cuts out the coupons, which are an added bonus. We women always enjoy seeing the Family Circus cartoon.

When I was growing up, we never had the newspaper delivered. This is because my father worked in downtown Chicago and preferred to buy the afternoon paper hot off the press in Union Station, and board the railroad train and read the newspaper on his way home from work.

When I was a kid, we got three papers a day. One morning, one afternoon, and the WSJ in the mail every day. I spent many a Sunday morning with the comics. Loved reading all the local news too. Mom would sit at the table and cut out the coupons. We always had a box of newspapers in the garage ready to go out with the trash and we also had a burn barrel in the back yard.

I have never subscribed to the paper. I was going to subscribe here but what's available online is more updated and I have cl for all the ads so I never bothered. Plus they deliver all the ads/coupons to me in the mail every week. No dirty finger and no trash to get rid of.

Other than the WSJ, I have seem no compelling reason to subscribe to any local paper. I DID subscribe to the Chicago Tribune for a couple of years until I noticed that nearly 70% of the content was sourced from the LA Times.
