Small Post Offices' Days Are Numbered
Reporter Tony Barboza pens, "But even as the Postal Service weighs public reaction, small communities worry that they'll lose a needed service. And in places like San Juan Capistrano, officials are fighting to save their post offices."
According to Barboza, "Closing the facility would force residents to trek to a larger one 10 miles away in Mission Viejo. And it wouldn't be much consolation that that office, founded before the neighboring suburb had incorporated, still bears the name San Juan.City leaders are united in opposition to the possible shuttering of the sole post office in the community of 36,000."
