Winter weather may delay newspaper delivery

February 20, 2013

In case of icy road conditions, Poteau Daily News carriers will attempt to deliver to subscribers. However, we do not ask our carriers to risk wrecking their vehicles and getting stranded in freezing temperatures.

If they can safely get down a subscriber's road, they will deliver the paper. If not, we ask that subscribers be patient. We will get the paper delivered as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Circulation Director
