The change of command is a time-honored tradition aboard ships and shore commands. It represents a total transfer of responsibility, authority and accountability from one individual to another. The core of the event is the formal passing of command in the presence of the entire crew, leaving no doubt as to who has assumed the mantle of authority. CEU Honolulu was established in 1990 having evolved from Maintenance and Logistics Command Pacific Shore Maintenance Detachment. As commanding officer of CEU Honolulu he is responsible for field execution of the Coast Guard Civili Engineering and Environmental Programs including all project planning, design, construction, and contracting in support of operations and shore infrastructure in the Coast Guard s 14 District. Wimmer is a 2002 graduate of the Coast Guard Academy with a bachelor s in civil engineering and served in various positions aboard ship and at shore facilities. He is a civil engineer and holds a Master s Degree in civil engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and is a licensed Professional Civil Engineer registered with the State of Alaska. He is also a LEED Accredited Professional under the U.S. Green Building Council.
McKinney will continue his Coast Guard career in Washington D.C. and will be joining Vice President Joe Biden s staff. He has served in the Coast Guard since his graduation from the Coast Guard Academy in 2003. While in command of CEU Honolulu the unit was honored with the 2014 Cowart Award as the Coast Guard s best civil engineering organization.
Adam Lewenberg, the President of Postal Advocate Inc., has recently posted an article about the anticipated changes in USPS postage rates and how it can affect mailing vendors budgets. For the first time in almost a century, USPS rates are going down on April 10, 2016. An average savings of 4.1% is projected. Some mailing vendors have already started implementing the new rates to ensure systems compliance. USPS is supposed to align their rates with the Consumer Price Index (which today is in the 0-2% range) however the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) has required USPS to reverse the 4.3% exigent surcharge they had approved last January 2014 because USPS is expected to collect the $4.6 billion cap on additional funds by this April. Once this benchmark is reached, the surcharge will be lifted and customers will be saving.
Mail Classes Rate Change and Expected Savings
- First Class Mail For retail, stamp rates will go down by $.02 for letters, $.04 for flats and $.09 for parcels. Savings is expected to be 4% for every weight break. And for a medium volume mailer using a presort service, the new rate will be $.013 per piece.
- Standard Mail The expected savings will be between 2.4 6.1%, which mailers can use to send out higher volumes that can bring in more sales.
- Special Services Savings of 0-4.1%. The price of Certified Mail with Return Receipt will now be $6.47 compared to $6.74 for a one ounce letter.
The USPS postal rate change is an advantage for the millions of mailers who will see savings instead of increases for the first time in their lives a change for the better that will surely be remembered!
