     Saturday mail service may have been resurrected by the U.S.Congress today.

     Slated to end in August, the U.S. Postal Service announced that restrictive language in a congressional funding resolution forced the continuation of service on Saturdays, a day relied upon by many postal customers.

     The USPS announced in February it would cease deliveries of first-class mail on Saturdays, reducing those deliveries to five days a week, to put a dent in a nearly $16 billion deficit.

     The Enterprise comes in the mail Saturdays and Wednesdays. Until the USPS makes a final determination on delivery days, no changes in publication are being planned currently at the newspaper.
