Hope for a town without a post office

SOUTH BEND, Neb. (WOWT) – For most people, getting mail just means a short walk to the curb.

In the small community of South Bend, Nebraska, it means a frustrating drive.

Now, thanks to Mike McKnight and Six On Your Side, a solution is being delivered.

For one year, residents of South Bend who walk to the post office have left empty handed.

“We want to know what they’re going to do. We want some action. We want our post office back,” said South Bend resident Connie Read.

The leased building was no longer cost effective, so more than 100 customers must drive 14 hilly miles round-trip to Louisville for their mail, no matter the weather.
