Ridgewood NJ, The U.S. Postal Service reported total revenue of $17.8 billion for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 (January 1, 2020 – March 31, 2020), an increase of $348 million, compared to the same period last year.

The COVID-19 pandemic, which has severely affected the U.S. economy, began to negatively affect the Postal Service during late March with declining mail volume, and the impact has continued to worsen since then. It is estimated that the COVID-19 pandemic will substantially increase the Postal Service’s net operating loss over the next eighteen months, threatening the Postal Service’s ability to operate. However, since the Postal Service began experiencing the impacts of the pandemic in mid-March, the pandemic did not have a material impact on its second quarter results, although significant impacts are expected for the remainder of the year.

WESTFIELD — A mysterious stalker known only as “The Watcher” has sent a fourth threatening letter to a township home that arrived in February, less than three weeks after a renter moved into the infamous home.

Derek and Maria Broaddus, the owners of the six-bedroom house on Boulevard, bought the property for $1.3 million in June 2014 and within days received the first letter from somebody identifying himself as “The Watcher.”

Two more letters arrived in the following weeks, all containing threats, two of them asking if the owners had “young blood,” a reference to children. The owners, who have children, refused to move into the home.
