With windchills forecast to be a dangerous minus 55 to minus 65 degrees, Swift County Monitor-News Publisher Reed Anfinson notified carriers for delivery of the Monitor-News and Monitor Extra in Benson that delivery would be delayed.

This was the first time in the 25 years that the Monitor-News has delivered the two publications in Benson with its own carriers that it has halted distribution due to extreme and dangerous cold.

Some carriers may have chosen to deliver limited copies in Benson, however, we encouraged them to wait for warmer weather.

Counter sale deliveries will be made to stores and gas stations in Benson and the area, and subscribers can stop by the Monitor-News office to pick up their copy if they decide to venture out.

As soon as the weather improves enough not to endanger the health of the young carriers who distribute the Monitor-News and Monitor Extra in Benson, delivery will be completed.
