I have been a subscriber to our city newspaper, which was called the St. Petersburg Times when I moved here from Pensacola in 1965. I gradually reduced my subscription from every day to Thursday through Sunday. At present, I have a Sunday subscription only and might not have that were it not for coupons and a desire to help continue print media. Most of my current news I get from TV and internet. In this day of declining newspaper subscriptions, one would think that subscribers would be praised for renewing one’s subscription. It made me wonder what was going on when my paper was not delivered on March 26th. I waited until 8:00 before notifying the Times regarding my missing paper. When I returned home from church and still had no paper, I called customer service and complained. I asked if they would deliver me a paper. They said that they had no more Sunday papers. Imagine my frustration when the same thing happened again on April 2nd and April 9th–again no newspaper. I have now called the Times three times and complained. I have been told that they are renegotiating deliveries. I would hope so or this wonderful newspaper is going to be out-of-business.
