A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Left angled backing in, still too weird?

Written April 9th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

It’s back! Postal convenience!

Written July 7th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

This is not the kind of breaking news that in the old days might have stopped the press, but from the standpoint of convenience it’s a big deal: The drive-up drop box outside the Albany Post Office on First Avenue has been restored.

What saving old church might cost

Written March 6th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Post office parking: The sequel

Written February 10th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Written January 31st, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Mayor Sharon Konopa would like the Albany Post Office to find another site in town, but the U.S. Postal Service has no plans to move and says it would find it difficult to do so.
