I have a concern with the cape cod times delivery . The Governor has declared a state of emergency for the cape , andthe news papers ate being delivered , my daughter is a driver for the cape cod times in Hyannis , she is off the road in a ditch , cold and wet . Triple a won't help becouse the road is not plowed . Is a one dollar news paper worth risking a life ? She has been told if she did not come to work she would be fired. The drivers for cape cod times are very dedicated and she not feel like that have to risk there lives to deliver a paper in the middle of a blizzard when that paper can be delivered later in the day when it is safe to be on the roads.
