Valentine Station Post Office in Loveland, Colorado, is to stay open although there will be a few changes to help save money, reports the Coloradoan.

Some of the routes in certain zip codes will be consolidated such as selected regions north of US Highway 34 in the 80538 area, which will see its 23 routes reduced to 21, although slightly different delivery times are likely to be the only changes noticeable to residents.

In addition, some of the 105 workers will be taking early retirement to further trim costs and keep the post office running.

Jim Clausen, acting post master in Loveland, told the paper about the relief that the office will remain open: "We didn't want to lose the service to the customers in the downtown area."

In other news, eligible Texas residents are being encouraged to use the internet to renew their driver's licenses and identification cards to save time and money.

However, people needing to show address verification may still have to visit the department of public safety, reports the Waco Tribune Herald.
