U.S. Postal Service
More than 200 irate postal workers attended a hastily-arranged rally on Wednesday in Bronzeville, and put their stamp of disapproval on Postmaster General Patrick Donohoe’s plan to eliminate Saturday mail deliveries.
It’s the end of an era at the post office.
A former mailman who figured he needed the money more than “The Servants of Mary” was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison on Tuesday, for stealing mail containing more than $275,000 in charity donations.

Time is growing short for people who want to play Santa under a program run by the U.S. Postal Service.
‘Tis the season, and we’re all in a rush to get our holiday gifts bought and shipped. That means things are running full speed at shipping facilities like UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service.
Now that the holiday season is in full swing, so is one holiday tradition that brings cheer to families in need: the U.S. Post Office’s annual “Operation Letters To Santa” program.
The mailboxes start out blue. Then, probably after some graffiti is scrawled on them, someone is painting over them in green or black paint.
A former mail carrier has pleaded guilty to stealing $275,000 in donations that had been mailed to a charity on his route in west suburban Berwyn.

If you’re heading out to the post office today to mail your Christmas cards, expect some big lines; the U.S. Postal Service expects Monday to be the busiest mailing day of the year, with more than 1.7 million cards mailed in Chicago alone.
Letters to Santa are piling up at Chicago’s Main Post Office, waiting for an attentive helper to answer them.
Members of Congress want to keep the U.S. Post Office from the deep cutbacks it’s proposing — and they will have six months to figure out how.
The Chicago post office says 8,000 letters to Santa are in the lobby of the main postal facility on Harrison Street, waiting to be answered in time for Christmas.
If you still mail a check to pay your bills, it’s going to take longer for them to get where they’re going starting in January.
With bankruptcy looming over the U.S. Postal Service, it’s possible that next-day delivery will no longer be an option.
The U.S. Postal Service says, if you’ve got mail tubs or pallets that you shouldn’t have, please bring them back, no questions asked.
