Subscriber Gets Front-Porch Surprise

Alameda Sun publisher Dennis Evanosky looks with wonder at the six boxes with some 1,200 newspapers that the post office delivered to the same address last Friday. A subscriber called the Sun office to say that she had all these newspapers on her front porch. The computer program that prints the address labels had the names of all the subscribers correct but addressed all 1,200 papers to one home on San Antonio Avenue. The press did a fresh print run on Saturday and delivered the correctly addressed newspapers to the post office on Monday. Alameda Sun subscribers will receive two newspapers this week, the corrected July 23 paper and this week’s July 30 edition. Evanosky is considering whether to contact the folks at Guinness World Records to see if this SNAFU might qualify for an entry in the record books.
