The United States Postal Services has a problem. The organization is losing money, lots and lots of money.
One solution presented last year was to close some of the rural post offices. The residents of the local communities spoke up, and the U.S. Postal Service listened.
Area post offices listed for closure on the first go around included: Comstock, Mason City, Sumner, Oconto and Purdum. Every indication at the time was that more were to be added. Public hearings were conducted and residents were asked to provide reasons why their post office should stay open.
In a special meeting of the Broken Bow Board of Education Wednesday, David Glendy was appointed to fill the seat vacated by the resignation of Don Davis, effective April 30. There are two years left on that term.

Glendy received a unanimous vote of approval from the five board members - Michelle Zlomke, Matthew Haumont, Tracy Popp, John Evans and Ken Myers.
