Thanks Offered for Newspaper Delivery

March 05, 1994

Thank you, Los Angeles Times and, in particular, our Times carrier.

On that awful Monday morning of Jan. 17, frightened beyond any fright we have ever felt, afraid to go back into our house and with dirty water, mud and rocks two feet deep rushing down our street, we were sitting in our car trying to decide what to do--and who came riding by but our Times carrier? What a welcome, normal sight.

We later found out that a water tank, holding 500,000 gallons, had ruptured, causing the flood. For a week we had no electricity, water, only intermittent phone service, and of all impossible things, no mail service. Yet every morning by 5:30, there was our paper, our link with the outside world.
