Break The Stigma

For Mental Health Month this year, Mental Health America is encouraging individuals to look around and look within. From your neighborhood to genetics, many factors come into play when it comes to mental health conditions. We encourage everyone to consider how the world around them effects their mental health.

Break The Stigma Mental Health Awareness Campaign May 2023

Disaster Preparedness for the Disabled

This will have a wealth of information for caretakers of people with disabilities or people with disabilities themselves.


NOW through Saturday May 13th

The National Association of Letter Carriers of Scottsbluff invites you to participate in a community wide food drive for our local food banks!

Monica Ream Branch 1836 Vice President Krista Holstein Branch Secretary

You can be a part of this by simply dropping off bags of non-perishable food items to the Scottsbluff or Gering post office or leave the bags near your mailbox Saturday May 13th until 4:30 pm.

Please feel free to communicate with your carrier if you have any questions.

A new scanner is being ordered to improve our signal to the public. Thank you to Siegfried Consulting LLC for their generous donation.

Over Scanner Traffic . . .

Remember, scanner traffic is not news until confirmed, and eyewitness accounts are often unreliable. All parties remain innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Also, only a small percentage of traffic is actually recorded below. Timestamps are approximately when our team reported hearing it. All traffic is fluid and subject to correction at any time. Traffic should not be considered fact until investigations are completed.
