Postal workers get city thanks

        LOVELAND — Neither rain nor sleet nor anthrax scares have slowed down postal workers here, which is why they were recognized by city officials Wednesday.

        The men and women who deliver mail here and, in February, stamp Valentine's Day cards with “there is nothing in the world so sweet as love” deserve the special attention, Mayor Donna Lajcak said.

        “We're very proud of our postal workers. They do a great job for us every day. And certainly we keep them busy around Valentine's Day,” she said. The city wanted to say that “we understand what you're going through and we thank you for what you do keeping our mail going through our country.”

        About 70 postal workers are employed at the Loveland post office, 200 Loveland-Madeira Road. The mayor presented them with a creative proclamation Wednesday morning.

        Brian Abeling, the “officer in charge,” said he and his co-workers were honored.

        “The carriers were uplifted. I could tell that they appreciated it,” he said. “We feel really fortunate that we work in Loveland. It'd be scarier if we worked in New York or in the East. (But) it's always nice to have some sort of recognition other than the bad publicity we get with our stamps going up.”
