Huntington Postmaster Dave Kuehnert (left) presents a certificate of appreciation to Darrell Shoemaker, who retired on Wednesday, July 31, after 32 years with the Huntington Post Office. Shoemaker was a letter carrier in Huntington all 32 years, and for the past 18 years carried Route 7 on the city's east side - a route that required an 11-mile walk every day.
