U.S. Postal Service Keeps Saturday Mail Delivery for NowNo changes will be made by the Wharton Journal-Spectator in its delivery service after the U. S. Postal Service announced to keep Saturday mail delivery for now.

Publisher of the Wharton Journal-Spectator, Bill Wallace, said that the same newspaper delivery will be continued by the newspaper. For many subscribers it is done through e-mail, whereas home delivery is also available for some subscribers in certain areas.

Wallace added, "We welcomed the decision by the U. S. Postal Service to continue Saturday mail delivery. For years we have had a great working relationship with the Wharton post office, and we look forward to working with them in the future".

The U. S Postal Service made an announcement earlier this year to call off the Saturday mail deliver from Aug 5 because of cost saving reasons.

However, on Tuesday U. S. Postal Service Board of Governors announced to postpone the implementation of its new delivery schedule till the time a legislation to provide the Postal Service an authority of implementing a financially appropriate and responsible delivery schedule is passed.

The board also considered the Continuing Resolution, which was recently passed by Congress to fund government operations. According to a statement, the board has not been left with any choice by the Congress then to delay the implementation at this point of time.
