Adrian Smith on USPS
Wednesday, 19 September 2012 12:50
Washington, DC – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) issued the following statement today encouraging constituents to participate in United States Postal Service (USPS) surveys on reduced retail hours at certain post office locations:
“The Postal Service is considering changes to retail hours at 13,000 post offices nationwide, including many in Nebraska’s Third District. I encourage all residents who would be impacted by these changes to complete the USPS survey. Doing so allows the Postal Service to determine the best path forward for individuals and businesses in every community. Your input will be considered in the final decision. Nebraskans can contact my office if they have questions or concerns.”
USPS will conduct an evaluation process of the proposed reduced hours at 13,000 post office locations over the next two years. The evaluation will consist of a customer survey and a public meeting. Until these meetings are complete, no changes will be made. Surveys will be mailed to affected zip codes and available at post offices.

Phone Scam Alert
Tuesday, 18 September 2012 15:14
According to the Cherry County Sheriff's Office, several residents in the area have been receiving phone calls from a person suggesting that they represent the FBI, and are installing security systems. The FBI does not conduct such operations, and this is a scam. Another version of the scam ironically states that the FBI will put a block on your phone to protect from robo-calls and telemarketers. This is also false.
As always, never give any personal information to anyone over the phone if you did not initiate the call. If you do receive one of these scam calls or any call which you think may be fraudulent, contact the Cherry County Sheriff's Office at 402-376-1890.
