Nationally, the USPS proposes reducing hours at 13,000 post offices to help save money. United States Postal Service Spokesperson David Walton says the two-year plan to reduce hours is an alternative to closing small branches. He says,</p><p><em>“We look at it as a win-win situation. You know, we can keep the post offices open and make the community happy but at the same time we’ll be able to reduce the hours at these locations, which will in turn save the Postal Service money as well.”</em> Tue, 13 Nov 2012 22:43:43 +0000 Whitney Jones 24479 at http://wkms.org Rural Post Offices to Reduce Hours in 2013 Kirksey Village Post Office Opens http://wkms.org/post/kirksey-village-post-office-opens <p></p><p>Kirksey residents have regained their own post office.
