The Milnor Post Office needs our help. It will be going from 8 hours a day to only 6 hours a day. It is part of a bigger trend that’s been happening in rural towns across the country. The reduced hours will have a huge impact on the town’s business. Other communities in the area have already had their hours reduced and are feeling the effects.
What does this mean to you? The Milnor office will be open less hours for you to conduct your business. We need to SUPPORT the Milnor Post Office by buying our stamps and mailing our packages from the Milnor Post Office.
As you know if we are open less hours (6) that means less people will use the Milnor Post Office and the next time they review the office it will go down to only 4 hours and then 2 hours and then CLOSED. As the saying goes: IF YOU DON’T USE IT – YOU WILL LOSE IT!
When will this take effect? October 1, 2014
Between now and August you will receive a letter and a survey from the US Post Office. The survey will have multiple choice answers to their questions. All the answers refer to either reducing the hours or closing the post office. Please answer the survey by writing across the survey –WE LIKE THE HOURS WE HAVE NOW. DO NOT REDUCE THE HOURS IN THE MILNOR POST OFFICE. Make sure you return the survey – this is very important. If the surveys are not returned, the Post Office will assume we do not care what they do. You can also write on the survey your personal reasons why you want the hours to stay the same and how the reduced hours will cause problems for yourself, the Milnor businesses and the entire community.
Please contact your Senators and Congressman and ask them to
keep the Milnor Post Office
open 8 hours a day. We do not want a
reduction in hours.
North Dakota cracked the top 10 in a recent ranking of best states in which to retire.
Retirement should not be just sunshine and beaches, according to Chris Kahn of the financial information website Bankrate.com. North Dakota was No. 10 in Bankrate’s ranking, which considered medical care access, crime rates, cost of living - and yes, climate.
Despite North Dakota being the coldest state in the contiguous United States, Kahn’s report said the state received a high ranking because of its low crime rate, and light state and local tax burden. The report also said North Dakota has five hospital beds for every 1,000 people, tied for second best in the country.
Grand Forks Senior Center Executive Director Colette Iseminger said the state’s budget surplus allows continued funding of senior programs that other states may have needed to cut.
Much of the top 10 were outside the Sun Belt, long considered a retirement hotspot. Tennessee, Louisiana and South Dakota were Nos. 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Another Midwestern state, Nebraska, was No. 9.
