It’s newspaper carrier appreciation week and The NEWS appreciates Giuseppi Bochek and his little helpers.

You may have seen Giuseppi Bochek delivering The NEWS during the last year and a half around Parksville, and you may have noticed his two little helpers.

“It’s pretty good (having the helpers), when they’re not nuisances…” the 14-year-old NEWS carrier said about his two sisters Dru and Jaymi, 6 and 8 years old.

Giuseppi often babysits the girls after school, and that means bringing  them along on NEWS delivery days. Giuseppi’s mom Samantha said several of the businesses that Giuseppi delivers to give the girls sweet treats and one mentioned to her that she particularly likes getting The NEWS because of the three great deliverers.

After making their deliveries, Giuseppi might  show his appreciation by getting the girls ice cream or another treat, he said.

Giuseppi attends Ballenas Secondary School and said his favourite subject is science.

“It applies to life better than other things we learn,” he said. He also bowls in a local league and enjoys reading and playing video games.

 

“All the good work we do at The NEWS, all the great deals advertised by our clients, don’t get to our readers without the hard work of our carriers,” said NEWS Publisher Peter McCully. “We offer our thanks, admiration and appreciation to them all.”
