  1. PO was closed today, because of a Federal holiday. I’m guessing someone left the parcel in hopes of despatching it tomorrow…not thinking it would cause such a stir. Ah, well. Good to know it was harmless.

  2. I have a comment.
    first- so, that’s what was going on when we drive by on Monday,at least it
    wasn’t anything more serious than a twit.
    second- Columbus Day,while it may be a federal holiday, and your bank was closed along with the post office, and I’m not sure what else- wait for it…
    Oregon doesn’t recognize Columbus Day, I found this out when I was complaining to the “planning” commision about the Olivia Beach subdivision working on this Federally recognized holiday, a condition which when their
    endless phases reached the number 3, agreed to not work on Saturdays,
    Sundays, or legal holidays. I have a copy of this agreement, and was present
    at the city counci lmeeting when the developer agreed to this. Now, wonder of wonders, “legal holiday” isn’t defined, so it’s clearly up to the interpretation of
    the twit now running the planning Dept. I saw the guy a a council meeting, and Townsend sounded like a dork then, he’s also the same guy that let my neighbors stack up 18 inches of dirt in a line so they could build a “6 foot”
    I’m glad no was was blown up at the post office.
    high fence, which is actually 7.5′ high. I’m off topic…

  3. written article wrong,the post office did not reopen at 5:30, It was never opened Monday,a Holiday.Writter of article needs to get facts correct first.

  4. Well, apparently the lobby was open, another thing some of us weren’t aware
    of. Actually, it’s helpful to know, the next time I’m there, I’ll ask about the
    other holidays, you know, the ones that the state recognizes.
