Snow and icy conditions can pose health hazards to your local mail carrier.
Zanesville Postmaster Steve Williams says the postal service is asking customers to help keep paths free of snow and ice for the safe delivery of mail. Injuries of carriers increase during winter months, which in turn, take their toll on employees.
