We told you days ago about Maplewood's mail delivery problems and Rep. Donald Payne Jr's office looking into it.

Well, The Star-Ledger finally caught on to the story and wrote about it today.

They report:

MAPLEWOOD — Neither rain nor snow should keep mail carriers from completing their appointed rounds except, it seems, in Maplewood.
Township residents say mail delivery has been erratic for weeks — they’ve been waiting for important tax documents, time-sensitive paperwork for college applications and packages — and their patience is on thin ice.
MaryPat Porinchak said she’s only received her mail three times at her Salter Street home this month. She’s made sure her sidewalks and drive are cleared of snow. When she sees her mailman, Porinchak said she pounces at him.
“I kind of accost him and I say, ‘where have you been?’” she said.
Several residents say the delayed deliveries began in January, the same month that the Maplewood Post Office got an acting postmaster to fill the vacated postmaster position, a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service confirmed.
