POST Plan meetings in Jewett, Scio

JEWETT – Two area post offices are the focus of upcoming meetings to determine whether they will close or alter business hours in the wake of declining mail volume and a billion-dollar deficit within the U.S. Postal Service.
Both sessions are set for Nov. 15 with the first at Scio Methodist Church at 5 p.m. and the latter at Jewett United Methodist Church at 7 p.m. to discuss results from surveys sent to local residents and answer any questions from the public. The post offices are being eyed for the POST Plan to possibly modify retail hours in order to match customer activity.

    Poor Jewett; what was a near bustling little place to my grade school eyes so many decades ago is now in danger of losing or seeing very reduced mail service at one of the last places which offered local residents a reason to drive into the village. First the grade school (I can still vividly remember the smells and sights of those rooms and hallways) and now possibly the post office.
    For a grade school student, this onetime student, that little village was the best place to be a kid, ever.
