Mrs. Violet Kessler, a longtime employee of Western Union, will close the company’s office here and take her retirement after almost 40 years of service. Those wanting to sent telegrams will now have to go through the Bunyar Flower Shop or the Independence Cab Company. The changes come after approval by the Federal Communications Commission of requests by Western Union to make the Independence office a “class 9” office, due to declining revenues. It has been a “class 3” office for several years.
