Gilpin calling it quits

Express editor
With a new grandbaby to visit, Master Gardener training starting soon, helping her CPA husband through tax season and serving as a caretaker for two family members, it doesn’t sound like Winters Postmaster Kathy Gilpin is going to spend much time relaxing when she retires on Feb. 20.
“I’m hoping I’ll have time for myself after all that,” she says with a smile.
Gilpin has served as Winters postmaster for 17 years, but has put in a total of 30 years with the U.S. Postal Service, which qualifies for retirement. Although Gilpin says she’s really enjoyed her time in the position, as well as the customers and her employees, she’s ready to move on. . . .
