Photo submitted to Times Observer Warren Public Library’s Zombie Doll and Creepy Creation contest winner Harper Christie poses with her Dead Bride doll. Children ages five to fifteen were invited to creatively transform an old doll into a zombie or some type of creepy creature. The public voted on their favorites over the last several weeks. In addition to Harper the other winner was Wyatt Wilkins with his Dark Woman of the Forest entry. Each winner received a $25 Walmart gift card. According to the parents the children had a great time working on their creepy creations. Thank you to all of the participants for another successful contest.

Passport Fair

The U.S. Postal Service has made applying for your passport easier with the launch of the USPS Retail Customer Appointment Scheduler tool (RCAS) on http://www.usps.com/scheduler.

In addition, select Post Offices in the Western PA District — including from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 16, at Warren Post Office, 210 W. Third Ave. — are hosting Passport Fairs in November to assist customers in obtaining passports.

Passport Fairs are a great opportunity to get your passport without having to schedule an appointment. Simply go to any of the sites listed below on the date and time listed with all required documentation and apply for your passport. Appointments are required for any other dates other than the Passport Fair event.

For the appointment, travelers need to bring with them the following items:

The completed DS-11, Application for a U.S. Passport form, which can be found at the Department of State website at https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html. Do not sign the form;

Proof of US citizenship;

Proof of identity (valid driver’s license, government employee ID, military ID);

Photocopies of U.S. citizenship and identification documents (these will be sent with the application, but bring originals for proof documentation);

Appropriate payment. Acceptable forms of payment can be found on the Department of State website. (Please note that neither debit nor credit cards are acceptable forms of payment by the Department of State);

Appropriate passport photo, if passport photo services are not available at the selected Post Office location;

Passport applications for children under 16 have special requirements. Visit travel.state.gov for more information.

After scheduling a passport appointment, make sure to click the Informed Delivery button. This new feature allows you to preview your mail and manage packages when you’re not home.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
