Guam rethinks curtailing home mail delivery

Pacific News Center reports the United States Postal Service may put on hold its plan to stop home delivery to some routes on Guam after local postal employees filed a grievance with the agency.

According to the report, Honolulu Postal Services Spokesman Duke Gonzales, however, declined to discuss the specifics of the grievance.

The US Postal Service recently ordered home delivery stopped on some routes because the condition of the roads on the island were not acceptable to federal standards.

Shown above, 10c brown from the 1899 issue overprinted GUAM by the U.S. Navy for use in Guam when it was a territory.
