LAKEWOOD -- The daily paper means different things to different people in Northeast Ohio. Today, we found a lot of mixed reaction to the Plain Dealer's cut in home delivery.

The thump of the paper at the door is how many people start their morning. But now, daily news readers like Joe Yaro will have to go in search of the Plain Dealer certain days a week.

"It's really unfortunate, sometimes I don't have time to stop in the morning. I start so early and I work two jobs, so I don't have time to stop, so if I have to make that extra stop a few days a week, I don't know if I'm going to be able to do it," says Yaro.

The black and white pages of information have been the source of world news for decades for both young and old.

April Kingcannon doesn't get a daily paper, but at the nursing home where she works, it's a necessity.

"And everyday they have their papers delivered and that's like the highlight of their day. They have to read their papers and the ones that can't no longer do it, we read it to them," says Kingcannon.

But for the industry that keeps track of the changing times, customers like Wes Sanderson started changing their habits.

"The paper was getting thinner and thinner and I remember the days when the Sunday paper used to be about two inches thick. Now I can get more information quicker on my phone."
