  • Daugherty retires as Jonesville Post Master

    What started as a temporary job, only filling in when needed, became a career for Linda Daugherty.

    Daugherty spent 28 years in a small room. She battled snakes once and bad weather during the winter.

    If she needed to use the restroom, she had to leave the building and go across the street. Once she had to operate out of a mobile unit with a portable heater to keep warm, but through it all, she never missed a day of work, other than for a vacation.
