>Hello seed-lovers -
>I have been in touch with the person at the USPS who is in charge of the 
>International Network Operations, regarding the problems of people being 
>charged extra to forward their seeds from the APHIS inspection stations to 
>their homes.  Cheri DeMoss has said:
>>Please forward any emails or examples you have concerning this problem.
>>I will make some calls and try to get to the bottom of this issue for you.
>While I have emails about a few of the problems that have been discussed 
>on Alpine-L (including a couple that have been forwarded from other 
>lists), the last email on this subject was back in mid-February.
>While it would be lovely to think that the issue has been resolved, it 
>could be that there are other instances that have not reached me.
>Please let me know if you have encountered any demands for further 
>payments to cover delivery of your seeds - recently, or in the past.  I 
>will keep personal names out of the correspondence with USPS.
>Interestingly, Ms. DeMoss reaffirmed the USPS commitment to forwarding 
>APHIS-inspected seeds without additional postage.
>Let's see what this round brings.....
>(Has everyone but me managed to sow all their seeds?!)
