Post Offices in West Virginia Could Close

image

The United States Postal Service announced Tuesday that 3,700 small post offices, stations and branches are on the Expanded Study Access List. One-hundred and fifty of those are in West Virginia.

Postal Service spokesperson Cathy Yarosky says none of the post offices on the list will shut down immediately. The U.S.P.S. plans to take it’s time and study each post office, talk to people in the community and see where their needs lie before any decisions are made.

“It does not mean they will definitely be closed if they’re on this list,” she said. “But I would anticipate that many of them will be closed.“

Yarosky says it’s a sign of the times. More and more people are moving away from traditional postal service options.

“The Postal Service finds itself in a very dire financial situation. In just the past five years, our mail volume has declined by 43.1 billion pieces. Customer visits to our post offices have also declined by 200-million. And our retail transactions have declined by two billion dollars,“ she said.

Yarosky says more people every year are using the latest in technology, like smart phones and i-pads, to pay their bills, even buy stamps.

That’s why the Postal Service is trying a new approach, getting rid of costly brick and mortar post offices and replacing them with what the U.S.P.S. calls “Village Post Offices.“

“It’s an opportunity for a local business, such as a grocery store, a small local retailer, a mom and pop store, for them to offer Postal Service products to people in the community,” Yarosky said.

Village Post Offices wouldn’t require a postal employee. Instead, the U.S.P.S. would offer workers at those businesses specialized training to sell Postal Service products, saving money in the long run.

As for the employees of the small post offices that are slated for closure, Yarosky says there will be no layoffs.

“We will work with our employees to make sure they are either reassigned positions in local areas or in other areas in other facilities.“

As for a time line, Yarosky says the Postal Service does not plan to rush. No decisions will be made on the closure of post offices before December.

The post offices on the list from West Virginia are:

Rockefeller Statement on Potential Post Office Closings

image

Senator Jay Rockefeller released the following statement after the U.S. Postal Service announced it is studying the possibility of closing 150 post offices in West Virginia as part of a cost-cutting initiative.

“I am concerned about the impact these potential closings will have on post office customers, especially in rural communities. I want to be absolutely certain that rural states haven’t been unfairly targeted. If that’s the case, I’ll be pressing post office officials to look more closely at their criteria to make sure the process is fair. For example, West Virginia stands to lose more post offices than California. That’s a red flag for me. Rural communities must continue to have access to postal services.”

“Finally, I encourage concerned West Virginians in areas that have been identified for closure to call the Appalachian District of the Postal Service to share their concerns and have their voices heard.  The Postal Service needs to know directly how these possible closings are going to impact West Virginians.”

Manchin Statement about USPS Plans to Potentially Close 150 Post Offices in WV

image

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) issued the following statement about the U.S. Postal Service’s plans to study 150 post offices in West Virginia for potential closure as part of an effort to close a $20 billion budget gap.

“While I understand that families and businesses are facing tough financial choices in a difficult economic climate, I urge the Post Office to make every effort to maintain services to the people who need them most,” Senator Manchin said. “I grew up in the small town of Farmington – with just several hundred people – and I speak from experience when I say that rural post offices serve as a critical lifeline to communities. As an elected representative, I receive dozens – sometimes hundreds – of letters a day from my constituents, many of whom can only reach me by writing a letter. While I understand that tough choices are necessary in this difficult budget climate, I urge the Post Office to make every effort to maintain their services.

“With respect to this terrible announcement, the Post Office needs to explain why it seems that West Virginia faces a disproportionate burden of these closings when compared with other states, as well as how the post office will continue to serve rural communities. I plan to reach out to the Postmaster General and ask him to explain this decision and what steps can be taken to minimize the negative effects this action will have on our families.”


Background:

In April, officials from the United States Postal Service attended regional open meetings in West Virginia communities whose post offices are facing potential closure, and representatives from Senator Manchin’s staff were on hand to help facilitate these community workshops. There, local residents had the opportunity to communicate creative proposals that might help preserve postal service.

Senator Manchin has previously joined his colleagues in the West Virginia Congressional delegation to call on the Postmaster to explain why a disproportionate number of area mail processing studies are occurring in West Virginia.

Wilma Jean Conrad
Beloved wife and mother, Wilma Jean Conrad, age 70 of Linn, WV passed away Wednesday, May 11, 2011.  She was at her home surrounded by her devoted husband and loving children.

She was born in Copen, WV on August 07, 1940 a daughter of the late John Delaney and Lucille Nicholson Fincham and was one of six children.

Wilma fell in love and married Stacy Conrad in 1959.  The couple moved to suburban Virginia where they raised their three children. She found great satisfaction in caring for her home, family and anyone in need.  She always placed the needs of others above her own.  This was the pattern of her entire life.

Spending time with her six grandchildren was one of the greatest joys of her life and each of them adored her. She will be remembered for her gentle nature, calming voice and endearing smile.  She lifted our spirits by simply humming a beautiful melody as she tirelessly went about her day.

There are no better words to describe her than those of Proverbs 31.  She is and always will be a vision of kindness and selfless grace that blessed everyone who ever met her.  She has gone to be with her Lord and Savior.

Wilma was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, Adrian, Isaac and Robert and sister, Madeline.

She is survived by her husband, Stacy, sons,  Stacy J. Conrad and wife Melissa of Wardensville, WV; Tim M. Conrad and wife Lisa of Charlottesville, VA; daughter Nina M. Weaver and husband Michael of Garner, NC; six grandchildren:  Angela Everett, Candace Conrad, Matthew Conrad, Michael Conrad, Julia Weaver and Lauren Weaver.  Wilma is also survived by her fraternal twin sister Emma J. Hacker and several nieces and nephews.

It was Wilma’s request not to hold formal funeral services.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to Hospice Care, PO Box 760, Arthurdale, WV 26520 whose services were invaluable and greatly appreciated.

Ellyson Mortuary, Inc., Glenville assisted the family of Wilma Jean Conrad with arrangements.
