Sophie Delivers Greenbelt News Review

with 2 comments

December 21

Every Tuesday night, staff members of the Greenbelt News Review meet at their office in the Greenbelt Community Center to make final selections on this week’s paper. All articles, photos, and ads are sent to the paper’s layout contractor Lynn Eppard. On Wednesday night, the layout is checked and corrections are made. The final version of the paper is sent electronically to the printer, and on Thursday morning it is posted to the paper’s public website. On Thursday afternoon, the print copies are delivered to Greenbelt, and the paper’s circulation manager Ian Tuckman delivers the paper to each carrier’s home. The carriers are supposed to deliver the paper to residences by Friday night. Last Friday, I followed Sophie as she delivered the Greenbelt News Review to GHI homes.

Sophie is a freshman at Eleanor Roosevelt High School. Her route includes 9 and 12 courts of Ridge Road, Westway, and all GHI homes west of Westway. Here she is at 8 Ridge Road.
