Mainers see medication, bills and checks delayed amid Postal Service woes

Dave Allender’s medication does not have to travel far. The retired therapist gets a prescription to fight an infection related to complications from his knee replacement sent from Auburn to his dirt-road home in Somerville every week, a distance of about 50 miles.

The refrigerated medication arrived on time until last week. Allender managed to get another shipment via courier and learned he was one of 10 people whose shipments from his provider were messed up that day. He tracked the original package and found it had been sent to Wells and Nashua, N.H., before heading back north.
