we live in the Parker, Tarrent county area of Azle and everyone talks about don"t mess with Texas. Well practice what you preach.
Every week you throw the Parker county shopper news papers up and down our street. These papers are not read nor are they picked up and after about 2 weeks the street looks like a trash can. If the wind blows which it does a lot they end up in our yard,streets flower beds etc. I called them and they stopped throwing mine but continue to litter the streets with the rest of the papers. Tarrent county puts theirs in the mail and we receive them in our mail boxes and we read them. I think it is a disgrace that Parker county can't afford the postage and would rather trash the streets with a useless newspaper. If it was picked up and read that would be different but it isn't and we see it everywhere. Please clean up your act and spend the money to put them in the mail. I am sure your subscribers and advertisers would prefer that what they pay to advertise in the paper would be read. Thanks.

I agree with the comments up above. I believe I am going to start collecting these papers and start returning them to the Shoppers front door step. If I wanted the damn thing I would ask for it.

I suggest you clean up your yard more often, encourage your neighbors to do the same. Try to teach your children not to throw their fast food trash in my front yard. Leave my news and my freedom alone.

Note to the Mayor.
How many of your constituants do you think read the shopper.
This an election year I believe!

I used to red the parker county shopper when it was placed neatly in my mail box. I no longer read it. I have been asked by my carrier if i was just too lazy to pick it up off the ground. NO, I feel if they are going to provide a service to me, It would be courteous to hand deliver or put it in my mail box. I do not want to go pick it up as i would trash on the ground. A service that a business provideds usually goes all the way not half.

I absolutely think these guys should be fined for throwing these useless papers in our yards. Half the time my dog gets it and chews it to pieces, then I have to spend a half hour cleaning it up. News Bulletin: Parker County Shopper, no one reads your paper and no one wants it.

The Parker County Shopper is ran by the Weatherford Democrat. Not City or County ran. 1. Blame the right person and 2. How hard is it to pick them up once per day? You get your mail right? Stop playing victim and do whats under your control!

I have 12 acres with a brick home for sale by owner near Millsap. The shopper certainly charges too much to run the ad.I need. With all this money, can't they afford bulk postage ?

LMAO what is even funnier is that it doesnt even come once a day...it is ONCE A WEEK! What lazy people who cant pick up a paper just once a damn week. Geez people seriously, isn't there something more worthy of a complaint?

We receive the Parker County Shopper as well. I agree with one of the gentleman who told you to just pick up your paper and go on your way. By the way, considering you live in the Tarrant County area, I suggest you learn how to spell it.

My goodness. Quit complaining, get off your rear end and pick up your free paper. I enjoy the Shopper and am glad that it is still a free service. You get junk mail in your mailbox. What do you do with that? Don't be a lazy, whiner.

I emphasize with Karla but they can't put the paper in the mailbox (US Mail Only) and it doesn't seem reasonable to expect them to hand-deliver each paper.

It appears that some people want this delivery & others do not. How do you get it stopped? I disagree with peoples comments about being lazy for not picking up what other people unwantingly throw on your property. What about people that are away for an extended period of time? Any takers on picking up for those people? Perhaps we are not lazy but just not always available.

We appreciate the shopper for delivering the weekly grocery ads, but we notice that a lot of our neighbors don't pick theirs up. If the delivery person would just skip those driveways and make a note of which ones not to throw to, that would be helpful.
