Faced with fewer subscribers and higher costs of delivery, home delivery of the Oregonian ceased over a year ago. For the past several months, the Oregonian has been delivered to Condon by the U.S. Mail driver on weekdays and sold at the Times-Journal. Saturday's paper was placed in the coin box at the Times-Journal, however, the coin box was being 'jimmied' and papers were being taken without leaving payment. Due to misuse of the coin box system, White has discontinued delivery of the Saturday paper. Home subscribers will still receive their Sunday Oregonian in their home paper boxes on Sunday.
