Please read if you receive the printed News-Shopper by mail...

Around the first of this month, the United States Postal Service announced there will be mailing delays and they weren't kidding. In that announcement they mentioned that Priority Mail and First Class Mail will have a priority over all other methods. With that in mind, we've been mailing the printed News-Shoppers by First Class Mail hoping they would arrive in a timely manner but in some cases there has been a 4-5 day delay.

We always mail them on Wednesdays like clockwork. They leave the Butler post office and go to Kansas City for sorting- then back to Butler for distribution. Please do not call our local post offices if they are late... the problem clearly lies in Kansas City and it doesn't look like things are going to improve any time soon.

So, after going to the expense of First Class mailing and it not being effective, we are exploring other options where we can mail through our local post offices and keep Kansas City out of the loop. Hopefully we'll have answers soon, please bear with us.

Sincerely, the Mid America Live Team
