SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 404(d), on February 15, 2011, the Commission received a petition for review of the closing of the Pleasant Ridge Station in Little Rock, Arkansas. The petition, which was filed by Lou Schickel (Petitioner), is postmarked February 7, 2011, and was posted on the Commission’s Web site February 18, 2011. The Commission hereby institutes a proceeding under 39 U.S.C. 404(d)(5) and designates the case as Docket No. A2011–8 to consider the Petitioner’s appeal.
