The friendly rhythm of neighborhood life is losing a beat with the decision by the U.S. Postal Service to end Saturday delivery.
In a bid to cut staggering losses, the Postal Service said Wednesday that it would eliminate Saturday delivery of letters, magazines and other “flat mail.” Carriers would continue to deliver packages, including medication, on Saturdays, according to regional spokesman Brian Sperry.
