- ‘He’s an angel’
Letter Carrier Branch 120 President Joseph Murone in Paterson, N.J., was walking his route one morning just before 6 a.m. when he saw a fire erupt from a home. He ran up the steps and started pounding on the door, right in the face of the fire. “I was doing everything I could to wake people up — yelling and screaming and banging on the windows,” he said. It worked. Waleska Morales, her sister-in-law and three children woke up and escaped. “I’m starting to believe he’s an angel,” Morales said of Murone. “I mean, what’s a mailman doing around at that hour anyway?”

- Bush - Clueless on Postal Reform?
  PostCom report:
As the Washington Post has noted, when he appeared to speak before the National Newspaper Association, President Bush got a question from the audience on postal reform. Here is the question and the President's response:

QUESTION: Postal reform, which has been going on in Congress for about 10 years, was really pushed forward by a commission that you appointed. And it was passed overwhelmingly by both houses and we have this bill going to conference in April or May.
QUESTION: There's some concern that the administration may want to oppose this bill or veto it; it's so-called not favorable to the federal budget. But there are things in that bill that are very important to the newspaper industry. And part of that is the funding that keeps rates fair because of some overpayment of military pensions that we don't think should be put on to the taxpayers, the ratepayers. So we would ask your support on behalf of us and Bonnie Mullins... (LAUGHTER) ... to support that bill as it's in the Congress, if it comes to your desk, sir.
BUSH: As you know, we did support postal reform. And as you accurately noted, we got the process started. And we look forward to working with Congress on an acceptable bill. Frankly, this issue hadn't made it to my desk prior to me arriving at this meeting. I'm mindful of the bill. I need to know more about the particulars before I make you a commitment one way or the other.

- Postal Carrier Delivers Life Back to Elderly Man
Veteran postal carrier Gene Kahl knew something wasn't right. He paused in front of a home on Kingsport Avenue Monday morning, a regular stop on his Warrington route. Newspapers had piled up. Mail was jammed inside the mailbox. Kahl studied the car parked in the driveway and drew a chalk line on a back tire. When the chalk was intact two days later, he knew it was time to check on the older couple who lived there.

- No mail is an island
  24-hour clock keeps USPS linked
"There are no islands in the Postal Service. All of our processes are linked. If you do one well, you’re going to do well in another, and another, and another.” That’s how Deputy PMG Pat Donahoe illustrates the importance of the 24-hour clock to our mail operations — to better manage our time, keep the mail moving and give our customers the service they depend on. Meeting commitments by deadline helps the next shift — or the next plant or Post Office further down the mailstream — meet its deadlines too. Key indicators to help us use the 24-hour clock are:

- All carriers back by 1800 (6 p.m.)
- Cancel 80% of collection mail by 2000 (8 p.m.)
- Process outgoing primary-sort mail by 2300 (11 p.m.)
- Process outgoing secondary-sort mail by 2400 (midnight)
- Clear MMP mail by 2400. Zero MMP at 2400 (midnight)
- Assign commercial/FedEx outgoing mail by 0230 (2:30 a.m.)
- Process all DPS 2nd-pass mail by 0700 (7 a.m.)
- Dispatch mail on time from plants to delivery units 0400-0900 (4-9 a.m.)
