With Christmas falling on Sunday, today is the formal Federal holiday, so there’s a lot of stuff that’s closed today. Of course, schools are still closed with Christmas break, and all city, county, state and federal offices are also closed. Post Offices are closed today, and there’s no mail delivery. The libraries in Kelso and Longview are both closed today, as is the office for the Kelso-Longview Chamber of Commerce. Waste Control is on its regular routes today, but the CUBS buses are NOT running, and the Transit Center is also closed. Most all retail stores are open today, but it might be a good idea to check ahead if you’re going to a specialty store, or if you’re in need of professional services.
