The U.S. Postal Service is changing its plan to cut more than $1 billion in overhead expenses. At first, it wanted to close many post offices and processing plants, including one in White River Junction. But after a public outcry, the Postal Service has proposed instead to drastically cut back hours in rural post offices. Vermont's State Auditor says the City of Burlington has mismanaged a complicated financial tool designed to help spur economic growth, and that the City should reimburse the state education fund. Vermont State Police say a 22-year-old hiker is safe after she became trapped while hiking in Smugglers Notch in the town of Cambridge.
