S. Dakota residents: Keep mail delivery on Saturdays
Published 06/24/2010, The Associated Press
Eliminating Saturday mail delivery would devastate people in rural states such as South Dakota, according to the head of a statewide letter carriers association.
Postal officials have sought congressional approval to drop mail deliveries on Saturdays after the Postal Service lost $3.8 billion last year. Its losses are expected to increase this year as people do more business on the Internet and the recession discourages business mail.
