Abstract

"North by East" piece reporting that residents of Castine are resisting attempts by the United States Postal Service to move the town's post office from the building it has occupied on Main Street since 1833 to more spacious quarters outside town. Town Manager Joe Slocum notes that town residents had defeated an earlier attempt to move the town's post office, and that they are now prepared to mount "a level of opposition like nothing they've ever seen before." Postmaster Al Rollins explains that the local post office is simply out of space. He works with two part-time assistants in a space of about 1,000 square feet, and that they handle enough mail on an average day to form a stack sixteen feet high, plus packages.
