No more home delivery update: End of Week 2 with no newspapers

Crossword puzzleBy Lynn R. Mitchell

The letter showed up with the newspaper two weeks ago: no more home delivery would be available for hard copies of the Waynesboro News-Virginian and the Richmond Times-Dispatch (see No more home newspaper delivery). Friends who live just west of us received the same notice of no more home delivery of their Richmond Times-Dispatch and Wall Street Journal.

We live five minutes west of Staunton, not even in the far western reaches of Augusta County. We were offered the choice of mail delivery or online.

SWAC Husband is deep in despair. Does he miss the news? Stock market reports? Sports? No, he misses the crossword puzzle. All those other things can be read in the online editions but there’s something about folding the paper into quarters to highlight the crossword puzzle, and then working on it throughout the day.

I miss the sales circulars from area stores.

The times, they are a-changing.
