Postal Service proposes again
to cut services

    The Postal Service is studying the closure of 3,700 post offices.  Ironically, the Postal Service is spinning the study of the firing of employees and the lowering of public service as an "Expanded Access study."

    The proposal highlights the shifting of some functions to local stores.

    That's the bad news.  The silver lining is that the Newberry Springs post office is not on the chopping list.  At least not this year.

    In the past four years, the Postal Service has terminated 110,000 jobs for an estimated savings of $12 billion.

    The Postal Service is also asking lawmakers for permission to terminate Saturday mail deliveries.
