Malone Telegram delivery problems being addressed following “Perfect Storm” series of events

A series of “storms,” or problems, has resulted in delivery issues and many subscribers not getting a newspaper for several days.

Sometimes a perfect storm strikes and several weather systems merge into one area to create one bad situation. That has been the case with the Malone Telegram in recent weeks. A series of “storms,” or problems, has resulted in delivery issues and many subscribers not getting a newspaper for several days. It is a problem that is frustrating for loyal readers of the Telegram, and twice as frustrating for the dedicated staff that works at the office of the hometown paper.

The perfect storm began with major problems with the printing press in Massena where the Telegram was being printed. Those issues led to delays in getting the paper shipped out to Malone in time for delivery to the local post office, which is the manner of delivery for the paper. There was a time when the paper could rely on a reliable individual, many times a teenager, who would have a delivery route and make sure papers were delivered in a timely fashion. But those days are long gone.
