No mail, no meds

A dispute with the United States Postal Service over driving conditions on Briggs Drive near Midtown has resulted in two homebound women being unable to have their medication delivered to their home.

The women and two other homes at the end of Briggs Drive were affected when the Postal Service declared the dead-end was unsafe to turn around in.

The Postal Service sent letters directing the residents to put their mailboxes at the bottom of a nearby steep hill.
