Federal, post offices closed today

Sun staff reports

There will be no regular mail delivery or retail service at area post offices on Tuesday.

President George W. Bush issued an executive order directing federal government agencies to remain closed on Jan. 2 as a mark of respect for former President Gerald Ford, who died Dec. 26.

Express mail deliveries will be made on Wednesday. Regular retail and delivery service also will resume Wednesday.
