According to the headline in the January 31, Rappahannock News, the U.S. Postal Service has decided to move the Washington Post Office from the town to a new facility located approximately two miles away off Route 211. How sad for the residents of Little Washington, who are used to being able to walk to a local Post Office!
But maybe there’s a way to ease their distress: I recall reading from numerous articles in the Rapp News last year that there is funding available to build a walkway or “path,” so why don’t we all unite in favor of using that money to build a “path” from Little Washington to the new facility?
Two miles isn’t too far, especially if local residents were to use, oh, I don’t know, say bicycles as transport along the new route.
Surely such a “path” could be planned and engineered to overcome the possibility of quicksand, pedophiles, meteor strikes and other likely obstacles and objections. It’s a Win/Win solution! I’m sure everyone in the county will see the brilliance and utility of this idea, something we can all get behind and support!
