POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - About 30 letter carriers lined a Pocatello street to protest plans to cut Saturday mail delivery.
    
Idaho State Association of Letter Carriers John Paige said Sunday the plan will ultimately cost the U.S. Postal Service and cause layoffs nationwide.
    
He tells the Idaho State Journal (http://bit.ly/107Tcxi ) that small businesses and rural areas depend on Saturday delivery.
    
Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe announced the plans last month, saying it would save $2 billion a year.
    
The Postal Service reports that it is losing $25 million each day.
