Postal workers apparently have no special clout when it comes to being told the check’s in the mail. That’s the case in this western Kentucky city, where post office employees are still waiting for their Jan. 12 paychecks. They seem to have been lost _ in the mail, Postmaster Kristine Fox told the Owensboro Messenger- Inquirer. “Somebody somewhere made a mistake,” she said. “And nobody has fessed up yet.” Fox said she called several postal centers to try to track down the missing checks but had no success. She said she waited to ask for new checks because she kept thinking the old ones would surface. “I wouldn’t have waited this long,” she said. “But Monday was a holiday. And I kept thinking I would find them.” The biweekly checks come from Egan, Minn., she said, and are sorted several times along the way.
