Alaska village needs postmaster

    Napakiak, Alaska (KINY) The village's postmaster has been on maternity leave for the past two weeks and the U.S. Postal Service is yet to find a replacement.

    KYUK-AM reported that residents have been unable to get medications that are flown out from the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation, pay bills through the mail, or get checks to pay for basic needs.

    The Postal Service tried to fly out replacements from other villages but bad weather canceled those trips.

    City Administrator Leo Kusayak said they are unsure when they will get mail again.
