Meeting will address future of Brush Valley post office
The Brush Valley Township supervisors have announced a public meeting regarding the future of the Brush Valley Post Office will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Brush Valley Fire Hall.
All box holders and anyone who uses the post office for mailing is encouraged to attend, as officials plan to discuss a possible closure or reduction of operating hours for the post office.
Repairs to six areas of Campground Road were approved by the supervisors Monday. The work will be performed by Sharp Paving, Inc. at a cost of $7,070.
The supervisors received notification from the Department of Environmental Protection that the Gillhouser Run Deep Mine has been revised, adding 711.2 underground permit acres and 713.7 subsidence control plan acres. Word was also received from the DEP that Amfire Mining Co. has submitted a request to renew its surface mine permit for the Kinter/Smith Mine.
Two upcoming community events were announced, both taking place at the Brush Valley Fire Hall. A community blood drive will take place from 1 to 7 p.m. July 24, and Brush Valley Day will be held Aug. 2.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
