A few POSTAL changes locally

There are a few new faces and a few changes at the local post offices.

According to Floodwood Postmaster Marvin Pirila, USPS dropped overnight service of first class letters. “This was effective January 5, 2015, and there was no change for Priority and Express mail,” said Marvin. “This was a nationwide change and had nothing to do with the plant closing in Duluth on April 19.”
