Letter to the Editor: Post Office Concerns

September 25, 2013

I know that our U.S Postal Service is having a hard time with money like everyone else, but have you noticed the state of our U.S. Post Office in Lucerne Valley?
Grass that hasn’t been mowed, which is approximately a foot high, handrails that are bent. There are a lot of messy places in Lucerne Valley, but our post office? Shame.
