(Minneapolis, MN) -- The U-S Postal Service announced today that it will no longer deliver mail on Saturdays. Twin Cities postal spokesman Pete Nowacki (NO-wack-ee) says the cost-cutting move has been in the works for quite some time. He says this step and reducing hours at smaller post offices, consolidating processing plants and trimming staff are related to the fact that we don't have the mail we once did. Nowacki says the post office had a deficit of 16-billion dollars last year. The new delivery schedule plan, which is set to go in effect in August, is expected to save two-billion dollars.
