It’s the changing of the guard at the Buckeye Lake Post Office. Postmaster Chris Johnson retired August 1 after 31 years of service with the United States Postal Service. He spent the last 4 1/2 years of his career at Buckeye Lake. Molly Ewing leaves for vacation on August 19, with her retirement effective September 1. She has 30 years of service and has spent the last 12 at Buckeye Lake. Johnson said Ewing is the reason that mail was ready to be picked up by 9 a.m. “We’d like to thank our Buckeye Lake customers for treating us so well,” Johnson and Ewing said. “It’s been enjoyable.” Beacon photo by Charles Prince.
