Dakotas (99.1 percent) topped the districts, while Western (98.13 percent) led the areas.

Scanning allows customers to track their packages and mail. It also helps USPS improve efficiency and network management.

Flag reminder. President Trump has ordered U.S. flags flown at half-staff Friday, March 2, to honor the late Rev. Billy Graham.

To fly the flag at half-staff, hoist the flag to the peak for an instant and then lower it to the half-staff position. The flag should be raised to the peak again before it’s lowered for the day.
