Mail Call
Photograph by David McLain

Dottie Kucharski checks her mail at 10 a.m. without fail. Despite—or maybe because—of the hundreds of retired letter carriers here, Nalcrest doesn't have mail delivery. Instead, all residents have a P.O. box at the centrally located post office. Kucharski doesn't mind the short walk. "I talk to everybody," she says. "Before you know it, an hour's shot. And some days I don't even have mail."
