  • USPS woes starting to hit close to home

    By Todd Martin, Landmark News Service

    The United States Postal Service says it is in dire financial straights.

    Late last year it announced the closing of nearly 500 post offices and now nearly 2,000 more could be lost.

    A Wall Street Journal report was picked up by several other national media outlets as the news spread early this week.
    “It’s a scary thought, but I don’t have any more information than what they said on the radio,” Finchville Postmaster Sharadon Snowden said.

With the need for family and children mental health services at maximum capacity, this new location provides for expansion of services and allows for more consumers to be served. At any one time, the Taylorsville center serves more than 100 children and their families.
