NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For July 2

SOUTHERN INDIANA

Be alert for newspaper scammers

The News and Tribune has received multiple calls about a subject going door-to-door selling subscriptions to the News and Tribune.

The News and Tribune does not solicit door-to-door and anyone doing so offering subscriptions to the newspaper is participating in an attempted scam. Do not give them money or personal information. Instead, call the local police.

Anyone with questions can call the newspaper at 812-206-2107 or 812-206-2108.

 

Post offices closed July 4

Post offices throughout Southern Indiana will be closed Thursday, July 4, and customers are encouraged to call ahead about modified hours July 5 because of the long holiday weekend. 

Many Southern Indiana post offices will have modified hours on July 5, with many closing at noon. Regular mail delivery will be unaffected. All post offices will resume regular retail hours on Saturday, July 6. There will be no mail delivery on July 4. 

Customers can take advantage of Automated Postal Centers, or APCs, at select locations. APCs are available 24/7 and provide easy access to postal products and services. Using credit and debit cards, the APC enables customers to purchase stamps, send items via Express Mail, Priority Mail, First-Class Mail and Parcel Post, as well as look up ZIP codes. 

Customers are asked to call 1-800-ASK-USPS (1-800-275-8777) or visit usps.gov for additional information.
