Euclid/St. Paul area to keep post office

The Euclid/St. Paul post office will remain open after a community effort to save it. Mayor Rick Baker and Mayor-elect Bill Foster said they worked with Rep. C.W. Bill Young's office to persuade postal officials to keep the branch. It was among hundreds nationwide slated for closure in an effort to offset $7 billion in losses. The post office has been at its current site since 1962.
