Postal Service Changes St. John Name

KSAL StaffJune 27, 2014

The U.S. Postal Service has conceded to the small central Kansas town of St. John.

After complaints from residents, the postal service says the town’s name will be changed in its database from Saint John to St John. However, it won’t have the period behind the “S-T” because the service’s database does not include any periods.

That’s mostly OK with the residents who started an online petition last week to have the name changed from the spelled-out Saint John to the abbreviated version. They said the incorrect spelling sometimes causes incorrect information or confusion when someone searches for the town on the Internet.

Sen. Jerry Moran’s office said Thursday that the name had been officially changed in the postal service’s database.
