Column: Ripon's Diane Klapperich's new postal address is a return to sender

New Ripon Postmaster Diane Klapperich is sworn in.

Did you hear?

Ripon has a new postmaster.

Well, sort of.

Officially, the postmaster isn’t new to the post, having been sworn in for the first time Thursday morning while working her for the past two months.

The person is not new to being a postmaster, either. And this postmaster certainly is not new to Ripon.

Want to know what’s new about her (that’s a hint)?

Yes, Ripon has its first female postmaster, but for Diane Klapperich, little about her post is new or different.

Because for Diane, a long-time Ripon resident, it’s just like coming home.
