HEPHZIBAH, GA (WRDW)– An entire neighborhood could soon lose mail service if they don’t change their mailboxes. The local post master claims nearly a hundred mailboxes in the Saddlebrook neighborhood are too short for mail delivery. The U.S. Post Office has been delivering mail to those homes for twenty-five years.
Alfred Hunt isn’t usually loss for words. “Okay. Okay. What else can I say?” he said. Hunt didn’t know what to think when he pulled a letter from the U.S.P.S. out of what he believes is his perfectly good mailbox.
“I’ve been informed by the Hephzibah Post Office that I have to raise it six to nine inches.” Hunt said. Raise his mailbox or else. “Or my mail will be discontinued,” he said.
