The post office at St. John's University has a new name. President Barack Obama has signed into law a bill that designates the Collegeville Post Office in Guild Hall as the "Eugene J. McCarthy Post Office".
Duluth's main post office has reopened after a woman wearing a military gas mask walked into the building with a duffel bag and package. Police closed the post office for much of the day Monday after taking the woman into custody. It took authorities several hours to determine the bag and package were harmless.
The post office is raising its rates starting Sunday but don't worry, mailing that recipe to Aunt Mary or the birthday card to Uncle Joe won't cost any more. That's because the 44-cent price for sending a basic first-class letter will stay the same.
