Due to the anticipated extreme cold, this week's issue of the Ripon Commonwealth Press may reach Ripon readers late for subscribers who receive hand-delivered issues in the city.

   Out of respect to paper deliverers, they are being told they do not need to deliver papers tomorrow (Wednesday) if they do not feel safe.

   In those cases, the issues will be delivered at the earliest time possible once it becomes safer for people to be out in the cold. This could mean delivery of Wednesday's paper on either Thursday or Friday.

   The Commonwealth apologizes for the inconvenience but asks for subscribers' understanding during this unusual weather period.

   For more information, call the Ripon Commonwealth Press at 920-748-3017.
