To the editor:

For the past five years Chris Richter has faithfully delivered our Madison Courier every day the paper has been published. Chris has one up on the Postal Service for reliability and dependability. There have been days when the paper has been delayed and Chris would walk his route and tell his subscribers that the paper has been delayed and he would deliver the paper as soon as it became available. How is that for service.

If Chris would meet you he would always have a pleasant word to say. He always placed the paper on our porch sofa on the same spot closest to the door.

We will miss Chris after moving from downtown, and employees with Chris's attitude do more for goodwill for a company than anyone can imagine.

Joe and Rhea Niehaus
