Page 8-The Journal Opinion-September 1, 1982 N ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY FOUR YEARS OF SERVICE--- The South Newbury Post Office closed its doors after 144 years of postal service to the community. The Post Office was established in 1838. August 20th was its last day of business before de-commissioning. S. NEWBURY The Maarten Smit family went camping last weekend, the first whole weekend all summer that the family has been able to get together. Selenda Grow drove John to Worcester, Mass., early Sunday morning where he will attend Worcester Polytechnic. Ryan accompanied them. Mrs. May Cole and Mrs. Persis Johnson from Pomfret stayed overnight Saturday with Charles and Nancy Cole. Mrs. Johnson spent Sunday with her niece, Isabel Whit- ney. Final Day Friday, August 20, was the final day of business for the South Newbury Post Office, At 9:00 a.m., a pickup truck with two demolition men arrived from White River Sectional Center. They demanded the large items that customers have come to associate with a post office, Le., the collection box and the nest of lock boxes (unused by the customers because the wooden ones are free. ) The moment of realization came at 4:50 p.m. when Jack Thomas arrived with a very large package to mail. The customer, finance examiner and postmaster all stared at each other blankly. Finally the awful words were uttered: "The scales have gone." Jack scratched his head and next morning betook himself bright and early to the Newbury Post Office. Where he discovered something, S. Newbury with its few boxholders was required to be open for business Saturday mornings the same number of hours that are required on week-days up to a certain amount of hours per week, whereas the Newbury Post Office with a much heavier population is only allowed to be open for three hours on Saturday.

CORINTH-- It was reported to village residents recently by our new ambassador to Zim- babwe, Orin Sherwood, that the manager of the Salisbury airport is trying to find alternative em- ployment for a toilet supervisor after it was found that she was allergic to a scouring powder being used at the airport. Sherwood said in a telex communique this was the first news he stumbled upon after arriving on a long flight from Miami and promises to have more interesting reports after he gets settled. He also noted the buses are crowded and cheap. The long hot dry spoil that settled in after the 4th of July weekend has cur- tailed much activity here lately. Villagers have been quietly tending to their gardens and to their af- fairs, mostly about the time of sunset. Corinth Industries. the Corinth Industrial Park, and the South End Market of Bradford recently joined in a rare experiment in intermunicipality cooperation in placing a collective zymurgy order from a firm in Detroit.

The girls spent small amounts of time touring the village on foot, picking ild flowers and barries, and generally basking in our rarefied rural air. Tom Watkin recently received a "145-pound" Irish Setter on "temporary loan" from relatives. The dog, named Barnabus, is 13 and spends his afternoons sitting under shade trees or wading in the cool basin just below Free Will Falls. He spends his mornings sleeping late, a practice admirable for its simplicity and not far removed from what this columnist would choose to do if he had the. option. his parents' home here last week. Each day was filled with new sights and country ex- periences for the children. They climbed Cannon Mt. in Franconia Notch which the five-year old twin grandsons accomplished in amazing style. Homeward-bound, they visited Great Grandmother Klein of Scotch Plains, N.J. and also spent a day on the surf at Sandy Hook. N.J.

Another day took them to Amish Country in Penn- sylvania to view an entirely different way of life. These are most interesting people who do not allow pictures of themselves but do not mind others observing their mode of working and living. They have no cars or tractors for per- sonal use or in their work but instead, ride in horse drawn carriages and employ the use of mules and horses for far- ming. One more trip took them to Crystal Cave in Reading, Pa.; very interesting and educational. Rain, seeping in from cracks and crevices, forms, many unusual and beautiful colored shapes.

CORINTH-- It was reported to village residents recently by our new ambassador to Zim- babwe, Orin Sherwood, that the manager of the Salisbury airport is trying to find alternative em- ployment for a toilet supervisor after it was found that she was allergic to a scouring powder being used at the airport. Sherwood said in a telex communique this was the first news he stumbled upon after arriving on a long flight from Miami and promises to have more interesting reports after he gets settled. He also noted the buses are crowded and cheap. The long hot dry spoil that settled in after the 4th of July weekend has cur- tailed much activity here lately.

The dog, named Barnabus, is 13 and spends his afternoons sitting under shade trees or wading in the cool basin just below Free Will Falls.
