UNHAPPY CAMPERS: In Milwaukee, Don Walker noted some fans who purchased shares of Packers stock “have complained that the stock certificates either didn't arrive at all, didn't arrive on time, or were damaged in some way.” Packers Assistant Dir of PR & Corporate Communications Aaron Popkey estimated that “less than one-half percent of orders had problems,” which would be “roughly in the neighborhood of 1,100 orders.” Popkey acknowledged that there were “some problems, but said the team and its partners, including Wells Fargo, which handles the Packers' shareholders services, were committed to fixing the problems” (JSONLINE.com, 12/28).
