The Kansas City Chiefs parted ways with Andy Reid today.  The firing comes just more than seven months after he was hired to be the team’s head coach and after just two exhibition games.

“Andy was hired to make us a winner,” said Chiefs president Mark Donovan.  “We weren’t looking to rebuild here for a few years.  We feel we have the talent to win now.  We made that very clear to Andy and he understood that an 0-2 record simply wasn’t in line with our goals.”

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo today, two days after the team blew another fourth-quarter lead, and replaced him with secondary coach Todd Bowles.

The team announced the move a day after Reid said he would “look at everything” following a 26-23 overtime loss to Detroit, when Philadelphia (3-3) couldn’t hold at 10-point lead in the final five minutes of regulation.

The United States Postal Service has released its “closure list” but it’s copyrighted and I am not allowed to post it 😦  However, I can report that no post offices in the Greater Pottstown area are on the list.

Fourteen post offices in Philadelphia are on the list and a Wayne location.  Those were the only 19xxx zip codes.

Most of the locations are small offices in Central, Northern or Western Pennsylvania.  There are a few exceptions but mostly more rural areas.

Here is a link to the list but it appears to be in no particular order.  I copy pasted into Excel and sorted by zip code or alphabetically to make it easier!
