Meet The Sentinel´s Carriers : Preston Briseno

 

Jess Macinko

Preston Briseno covers a lot of ground for The Sentinel. After bagging his papers at the office, Preston walks over half a mile to the corner of East Court and Roosevelt, where Route F begins. Then he delivers a total of 39 papers to the neighborhoods around the hospital. Preston says he used to carry the papers in a sack like most carriers, but switched to a wagon when the load started to make his shoulders ache.

We don't blame him. When he isn't working, Preston enjoys video games, chess and math. "It's easier than almost anything else I do at school." Preston says winter weather is the most challenging part of the job. When there's ice and snow on the ground, "it's hard to get up the hill on Roe [Drive]." He has also been chased by a boxer dog. Again with the dogs, people!
