Eight mail processing centers in Ky. to close

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The U.S. Postal Service says it is
closing eight mail processing centers around Kentucky.

In a statement released Thursday, the Postal Service said
centers in Bowling Green, Campton, Elizabethtown, Hazard,
Lexington, London, Paducah and Somerset would close. Mail processed at those centers will now be processed at facilities in other cities.

The announcement comes after five months of study as officials
with the U.S. Postal Service look to cut spending across the
nation.

Earlier this month, the Postal Service said its quarterly loss
grew to $3.3 billion amid declining mail. Postal officials have
said they need to cut $20 billion dollars by 2015 in order to stay
profitable.
