If statistics are true, and thousands of vehicles are involved in accidents each day, then for more than three decades someone has been picking up Carey Harville's slack. Harville, a 37-year veteran of Statesboro's United States Post Office, has, since the 1970s, delivered mail to residents of Bulloch County without fail and without a single blip on his driving record. Friday, in the post office's sorting room filled with his delivering brethren, the 63-year old Harville was presented an award for the rare honor of driving more than one million miles without incident.
