First class mail is in the boxes by 11:30 a.m..- The lovely lady that oversees all the activity of the Post Office is LAURA LEWIS, our Postmaster. She became Postmaster in September,1999. (The Post Office Department prefers this title regardless of gender.) Her staff includes: Amy Hollenbeck, Deborah Butts, Regina Moretti, Lisa DiPaolo, Chris Holeman and Ross Moretti is the highway contract driver. Laura keeps a watchful eye on the lobby. She does not like lines and always assists us personally and always with a cheerful attitude. Folks often wonder why there is no one at the counters in the lobby at all times and it is necessary to ring the bell for service. Laura explains that all hands are needed to handle the tremendous amount of mail and all hands are kept busy behind the scenes all day. Laura was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1962 to Judson and Linda Forsyth. She has two sisters - Patricia Cairns and Elizabeth Pennington. Her family moved to California when she Was eight years old. They lived at Warner Springs where she attended elementary school and then graduated from Julian High School in1980. She attended Mesa College, Palomar and then graduated from University of Phoenix with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Marketing. While in college, her roommate was Mad& the youngest sister of Bob Lewis of Julian. It was through Maria that Laura met Bob. They were married in 1982. " They have two children - Robert Matthew born in 1986 - 17 years old and Jennifer Leanne born in 1990 - 13 years old. They make it five generations of Julianites in the Lewis family. Mort and Marilyn Lewis are the children's grandparents. Ann Farley is great Grandma. Laura's husband had been self employed and ran an excavation company doing grading locally. He then worked at Carmel Mountain Processing Plant as a motor'vehicle operator and tractor trailer operator. He was on his way to work at the Carmel Mountain facility and while driving down the mountain at 4 a.m. on February 6,1999, he lost his life in a tragic car accident that involved a drunk driver. The driver is currently in prison serving an eleven year term. Laura has a double job - her work as our Postmaster and raising her family alone and doing well with both responsibilities. She was responsible for getting a local telephone number for our post office rather than being routed through out of town switchboards. That number is: 765-3648. A good way to remember is 3-dozen & 4 dozen. Laura began to climb the ladder of success right here in Julian. She began her postal employment as a distribution and window clerk at the Julian Post Office in 1985. In 1987, she transferred to the Santa Ysabel Post Office and later to Ramona. She earned her first promotion into supervision in 1997 when she became the customer service supervisor in Vista. Although her previous permanent assignment was at the Vista Post Office, she has been officer-in-charge at the Pine Valley Post Office during the absence of a regular postmaster. Laura's strength in managing postal operations is supported by her completion of temporary management assignments at the Borrego Springs, Jamul and Alpine post offices. While at Alpine, she was recognized for her first place performance among all other post offices of comparable size. Laura has several tips she would like to pass on to all of us. I had a situation recently that kept me on edge for a few weeks. I had mailed my check and car registration to DMV for my new registration blue sticker on July 1st and the month was over and I still had not received my new registration. Laura said others were concerned about theirs also. Finally after six weeks, it showed up. She had kept an eye on incoming mail for them and personally handed mine to me. She noticed that mine only had the street address and not my post office box number. Mail without a post office number is normally returned to sender. She suggests that we all notify our correspondents our post office box number and when ordering parcels to include the four digit post office box number after the ZP code. That will arrive here or use a four line address. In July, 1963, every address in the country was assigned a ZIP Code. ZIP stands for Zone Improvement Plan. Never guess about the ZIP Code. If you are not certain, call the Post Office to obtain the correct number. Rural and suburban mailboxes are most vulnerable to vandalism according to Postal Inspectors. Because they are usually isolated and frequently not visible to the owners from their houses. Since mailboxes are considered federal property, crimes against them are considered a federal offense. Violators can be fined or imprisoned for each act of vandalism. If you have teenagers in your home, do your best to let them know the penalties for vandalism, the inconvenience and cost to the victims, and that the Postal Service does not take any of it lightly, if you have information on mailbox vandalism or mail theft in your area, report it to the Postal Inspection Service by calling 1-800-ASR- USPS (1-800-275-8777). Laura suggests that if you are expecting certain mail or checks or packages at a certain time and they do not arrive, to be sure to let her know and they will trace. Notify the Post Office and your personal and business correspondents when you move. As a recipient of mail, make sure your mail moves with you. You can get and complete an official change of address form at the post office. Seeing a personal letter in your mail is almost like finding a treasure. Make yourself a promise this week to take a few moments out of your busy schedule, find a quiet spot and write a letter to someone special - someone across the country or just across the street. Renew old acquaintances, make a new friend. Tell your grandparents that you miss them. Let your teenage son know how you love him. See how much pleasure two people can share for just 37 cents. Laura has an awesome responsibility overseeir/g the smooth flow of mail to the residents of Julian. She said she loves her job and the people she works with. She feels it is an honor to serve our community and "it will always be that way". We are so very privileged to have Laura as our Postmaster and she is a very special lady and we all appreciate her and her staff. CAN YOU STAND BEHIND YOUR NAME?
