OK, so it's not local news, but postal rates go up Monday

On Monday (14 May) the price of first-class stamps rises to 41 cents from 39 cents.

But, that’s not all. To qualify as a letter-rate mailing at 41 cents for the first ounce (and 17 cents for each additional ounce), your letter must weigh no more than 3.5 ounces, have a maximum length of 11-1/2 inches, a maximum height of 6-1/8” and a maximum thickness of ¼”.

If your letter exceeds these dimensions, it will be classified and priced as a large flat envelope (which are 80 cents for the first ounce!).

Go here to read all about the new rates and fees.
