Fully implement the “zero tolerance” concept and strictly crack down on illegal securities activities in accordance with the law
The sun pushed away the fog of Hongze Lake, the reeds in the tidal flat swayed with the waves, and a few egrets shrank in the shade of the trees. It was another day of exposure.
Tang Zhenya stopped the boat, reversed gear, stalled, and tied the boat close to the beach at the mouth of the Huai River. The little black dog from Malanggang Maritime Station in Huaian City, Jiangsu Province has run from the house to the shore, wagging its tail vigorously.
“Here?” The attendant poked his head out and greeted with a smile on the second floor window of the Maritime Safety Institute.
“The two party newspapers are in the house.” Tang Zhenya grinned, white teeth showing on her dark face. He turned and walked toward the boat quickly, “There are so many packages today, so I have to go to Xintan Village as soon as possible. It will be troublesome in case it rains heavily after the morning.”
It is an ordinary day for Tang Zhenya, a shipping postman, to send mail to more than 50 tidal flats on the surface of more than 300 square kilometers. From rowing a wooden boat with one pair of oars to driving a small fuel boat without a shed, Tang Zhenya has worked for 22 years.
In 22 years, the ship traveled more than 300,000 kilometers, which is equivalent to circumnavigating the equator for 7 and a half times. He has not delayed a schedule or lost a mail. The delivery accuracy rate of 5460 shifts is 100%. Regardless of the cold winter and the heat, he never cares about the length of work, and always strives to do his best to send home letters to the elderly, find comrades for soldiers, and send admission notices to students.
The fellow villagers said: “Xiao Tang has now become Old Tang, but he has always been our trusted ‘Great Lake Wild Goose’!”
One person supports one branch
If the letter does not have an exact address, he will be asked by the ship; if the recipient is not at the original address, he will be inquiring about it. Boating more than ten kilometers against the wind is commonplace.
Laozishan Town, a small town in Hongze District, Huai’an City, is located at the junction of the Huaihe River and Hongze Lake. 90% of the area under the jurisdiction of more than 300 square kilometers is a vast lake.
“Look, that’s Xintan Village.” Looking in the direction of Tang Zhenya’s fingers, a small bag of soil emerged from the reeds.
As the boat sailed forward through the waves, the water was endless, Tang Zhenya pointed to a beach that was the same as Xintan, “That’s Old Yashu Village.”
On the Hongze Lake and on the banks of the Huai River, which beach head does not look like this? Before the fishermen went ashore, nearly half of the 18,000 population in Laozishan Town lived on more than 50 beach heads, both large and small. The distance between the farthest beach heads was more than 20 kilometers. . Before the Internet and mobile phones became popular, communication was the only channel for fishermen to communicate with the outside world. But there are no administrative divisions on the lake, no house number for fishermen, no maps and no navigation for the courier, and the letter receiving address often only contains the words “on the lake of Hongze”. What’s more, fishermen move with the fish and their addresses are not fixed. Sending letters here, it’s difficult!
Since Laozishan Town opened a water mail route in 1954, 11 postmen have been changed in 45 years. “The water postal route is windy and rainy, and the food is irregular. The most painful and the most difficult.” Liu Hou, the former director of the Laozishan branch, said, “If you do a long job, you can do it for 1 year, and the shortest is less than 3 months.”
Fortunately, Lao Zishan met Tang Zhenya. In 1999, Tang Zhenya was employed as the twelfth courier of the Laozishan Branch of China Post. For the next 18 years, he held up a branch by himself.
“The feeling of the fishermen looking forward to the letter, I understand! Growing up in the lake area, we most look forward to hearing a’letter’.” Every night, Tang Zhenya began to receive parcels and sort mail; when the sun rose, The pancakes and the water bottle were stuffed into the satchel, and they were delivered by road on a bicycle, and then rushed into the water before noon, while rowing a boat while eating a few bites of cake to fill their stomachs. If the letter does not have an exact address, he will be asked by the ship; if the recipient is not at the original address, he will be inquiring about it. Boating more than ten kilometers against the wind is commonplace.
In summer, when the sun is scorching, there is no shade to hide on the huge lake; in winter, the cold wind is biting, and it rains, and the wet cotton coat can wrap people into “popsicles.” In the wind and the rain, Tang Zhenya has a dark skin. Even if she wears gloves all the year round, the calluses from the boat are still hard. “Can’t delay, don’t dare to delay, don’t read the letter book, but the sentiment is serious and the matter is big!”
After going back and forth, Tang Zhenya knew which of the more than 3,500 fishermen on the lake lived where, what they depended on for their livelihoods, and their kinship.
Over the past 22 years, Tang Zhenya has delivered 1.3 million newspapers and periodicals and 110,000 letters, maintaining a record of zero errors. Zero errors are exchanged for trust. Many villagers entrust him as a deliveryman for things that can only be done by going ashore, such as buying grain and oil, purchasing daily production supplies, paying electricity and water bills.
Shaking the oar to deliver the post, Tang Zhenya suffered no less. At the beginning of this century, fishermen successively boarded mechanical boats, and Tang Zhenya also rowed small wooden boats; when Tang Zhenya had mechanical boats, fishermen changed into speed boats. Until 2019, Tang Zhenya’s equipment was finally upgraded to a small speedboat, which could “go with the fishermen”.
“It’s not that we are treating Lao Tang badly. The general postal service often requires’returning the money’.” Hu Jin, general manager of the Hongze District Post Branch, said that the parcel delivery fee income from the branch can’t even make up for the oil money of the boat. “But as long as there are people, no matter how remote, we can’t break the post. Wherever there are people, there will be China Post.”
No matter how hard it is, I have to deliver
After the small wooden boat was overturned by the big waves, Tang Zhenya firmly grasped the side of the boat with one hand, and raised the postal parcel with the other. This action lasted two hours, until the passing fishing boat found him.
As the “Great Lake Wild Goose”, Tang Zhenya not only sleeps and eats, but also sometimes thrills.
One day in July 2003, Tang Zhenya rowed towards Changshan Village under the scorching sun. Just over 1/3 of the itinerary, dark clouds covered the sun, rain and gust of wind. While controlling the hull of the boat, he used a scoop to scoop the water, but a big wave hit 3 meters high, the small wooden boat was instantly overturned, and Tang Zhenya was thrown into the water. At that time, he didn’t think too much, he grabbed the side of the ship firmly with one hand, and held the postal parcel high with the other. This action lasted two hours, until the passing fishing boat found him.
Climbing on the big boat, Tang Zhenya realized that both arms had become so stiff that he had lost consciousness. The fishermen handed him hot water and let him enter the shed to rest. The first sentence he blurted out was: “Help me turn the’old man’ over. There is an important letter to send.”
“Are you crazy? Belief is more important, or life is more important?” The fisherman kindly persuaded.
“This is the university admission notice, Wawa has to wait anxiously!” Tang Zhenya struggled to get up again without waiting. In order to deliver this admission letter, Tang Zhenya has spent 3 days. There are 6 groups in Changshan Village, and the distance between groups is about 7.5 kilometers by waterway, but the envelope only says “Du Zhongxiang, Changshan Village”. Tang Zhenya rowed the boat and almost ran Changshan Village, only to learn that Du Zhongxiang lived in a reed bush called “Jiancaogou” near Xuyi County.
In the wind and rain, Tang Zhenya finally arrived at Du Zhongxiang’s house after paddling for nearly an hour. Looking at Tang Zhenya, who was drenched, and then at the notice that was tightly wrapped in plastic sheet in the postal parcel, Du Zhongxiang’s father’s eyes were sour: “How can we thank you for this!”
This is not the first time Tang Zhenya has been in danger. Once, he sent a letter of admission to Tang Da of Hongming Village. Just halfway through the 10km road, there was a heavy rain and blurred vision. The boat was repeatedly thrown up and down in the wind and waves, and the water in the boat was about to be level with the lake. Tang Zhenya half-squinted her eyes, scooping out the water while struggling to row, and it took more than 3 hours to reach her destination. As soon as he got ashore, he collapsed to the ground and didn’t get up for a long time.
“Old Tang was afraid that I was worried, so he never told me this. I only learned about it on TV in 2007, when tears came down.” That was the first time that his wife, Yan Ling, had a temper with Tang. Later, Yan Ling closed her small shop, got up early and greedy the dark, and volunteered to be Lao Tang’s helper, “Knowing that you are reluctant to bear the fishermen, reluctant to bear this job. If you work for a day, I will accompany you all day.”
The fellow villagers said that Tang was born a postman, he could touch it anywhere and anyone could find it.
In 2007, a letter stating “Accepted by Lu Guie, No. 1, Chuantang South Road, Laozishan Town,” was mailed to the Laozishan Branch. But when he arrived at No.1 Chuantang South Road, Tang Zhenya asked hundreds of people, but no one knew who Lu Guie was.
According to the handling regulations, this letter can be returned on the grounds that “the person is not found”. “This letter is from Jiangxi. Maybe it’s to find relatives and friends. You have to try it.” Tang Zhenya continued to inquire about the elderly, and finally found Lu Gui’e, who was in her 70s, with the help of an elderly person.
It turned out that the writer was Lu Guie’s younger brother, in order to inquire about her sister who had been separated for more than 40 years. Tang Zhenya’s persistence allowed her sister and brother to finally get on the line and met at Laozishan. “If it weren’t for Master Tang, I might not have seen my brother in my life.” Lu Guie’s eyes were moist.
In the past 22 years, Tang Zhenya has sent out 22 admission notices for college entrance examination; never gave up a letter with an unknown address, and indirectly helped nearly 500 people realize their dream of finding relatives and friends. “It is a great honor for me to resurrect a’dead letter’,” Tang Zhenya said.
Nowadays, many fishermen in the lake area can tell Tang’s mobile phone number, and many fishermen simply write the address of the recipient as “Tang Zhenya transfers to XX.”
At the beginning of 2011, the Laozishan postal storage outlets were evacuated due to the branch of postal banking. Many fishermen were anxious, chasing after Tang Zhenya and asked: “Will the post office also be withdrawn?” “Will you be transferred?” Old Tang’s answer gave everyone a reassurance: “As long as you need it, the post office will provide service. Constantly!”
It’s a courier and knows everything
Tang Zhenya and Xintan Village set up a “fishing bookstore” dedicated to fishermen. Tang Zhenya personally donated 80% of the bookstore’s books and subscribed to more than 1,300 magazines and newspapers at her own expense
The basket is tied to the waist with a rope; the baby is tied to the boat with a rope; the boat is tied to the shore with a rope… Fishing at sunrise and rest at sunset, cramped space and monotonous life, the lake area used to be very difficult.
At the turn of the century, in response to the call of the local government, fishermen started aquaculture in addition to fishing. “Cultivation is a technical task. It must be scientific and methodological.” With the convenience of the post, between water and land, Tang Zhenya always pays attention to whether there are books or CDs on aquaculture, what to see, what to buy, and to give away. To fishermen in the Lake District. Later, Tang Zhenya and Duan Chengfu, director of the Xintan Village Committee, worked together to set up a reading room dedicated to fishermen. In 2006, the only “fishing bookstore” in the country opened its doors.
He Guanglai is one of the many beneficiaries of “The Fisherman’s Bookstore”. He Guanglai had no experience when he first started farming, so Tang Zhenya recommended him to read a few professional books. “Following the book bought by Tang to explore scientific crab breeding is really useful!” In the first year of raising crabs, He Guanglai did not have a single disease accident in the crab pond, and earned 40,000 yuan at the end of the year.
With the passage of time, the collection of “Fishing House Bookstore” has become more and more abundant. Among them, Tang Zhenya personally donated 80% of the books in the bookstore and subscribed to more than 1,300 magazines and newspapers at his own expense, including picture books and story books that children like.
Nowadays, there are more and more fishermen engaged in breeding in the Hongze Lake area, and the days are getting more prosperous. Every family has replaced small sampans with large-tonnage cement boats. On a cement boat, there are generally three bedrooms, one living room, one kitchen and one bathroom. The living room has floor, sofa, and color TV. The bedroom has Simmons. The bathroom has a toilet and shower room. The kitchen has a refrigerator and a gas stove. “If it weren’t for the lake outside the window, it would feel like a building in the city,” Tang Zhenya said.
With the popularization of the Internet, the channels for fishermen to obtain knowledge and information from the outside world have expanded. Tang Zhenya taught everyone to search for market information and find sales channels on the Internet. The fishermen who were waiting for the fishmongers to come to purchase the fishermen began to take the initiative to expand the market in Nanjing, Shanghai and other places, and their income generally increased by more than 30%.
In the past two years, online shopping has become a new fashion. Tang Zhenya also organized fishermen to sell Hongze Lake crabs on the e-commerce platform. In just two months of sales each year, the total income of farmers can exceed 1 million yuan. “Everyone said that the increase in fishermen’s income is due to Lao Tang!” Liu Shiyuan, a farmer in Anhuai Village, said with a smile.
Tang Zhenya is enthusiastic, caring and patient. The fishermen are always the first to think of him when they have difficulties. They also consulted him on matters beyond the postal service such as diesel subsidies, residents’ subsistence allowances, and medical reimbursements. If you can answer, Old Tang will explain it in person; if you can’t answer, just write it down in your notebook and ask the relevant department to answer. After a long time, the fishermen will trust Tang Zhen Adam’s relatives and personal affairs such as depositing and withdrawing money in the town with confidence. “If you have something to do, you can find Tang and China Post. It’s not wrong.”
The fishermen’s postal route is still ashore
From sending letters and newspapers, to helping fishermen with daily necessities, to sending parcels to e-commerce companies, and sending information about getting rich, the water postal route has been changing and developing without interruption.
“Next month, I won’t even be able to see the last few ships.” After delivering the package, Tang Zhenya said emotionally, looking at the sparkling lake and the swaying reeds.
In order to manage and improve the lake area, Hongze District will complete the renovation of the “two boats” (house boats and catering boats) this year, and all the fishermen will go ashore to live.
Where do they live after going ashore? Many fishermen think of the green China Post or Tang Zhenya for the first time.
How come the villagers of Xintan Village can’t find suitable housing for a long time. Seeing that the time to land is approaching, how come to find Tang Zhenya for help. One room for occupants and one room for storage. Taking down the needs of what was planned, Tang Zhenya began to use the off-get off work time to help find a room. After finding the house, Tang Zhenya helped to increase the annual rent from 20,000 yuan to 12,000 yuan. After moving into the house of your choice, He Ji came to a happy family.
After receiving a compensation of 500,000 yuan, how to use it? Some fishermen are undecided, or call Tang Zhenya. Lao Tang also taught the fishermen a lesson in financial management, recommending the “three-three-three rule”, 1/3 purchase endowment insurance, 1/3 savings, and 1/3 investment, which not only provides protection for future life, but also effectively controls risks.
The fishermen have come ashore, is the water postal route still there?
“It will definitely be there again.” Tang Zhenya said, pointing to the house on the shore. Although the fishermen were on the shore, most of them still lived near the lake. Delivery by water is faster than by land.
The years have passed, and the water postal route has also been changing. From sending letters and newspapers, to helping fishermen with daily necessities, to sending parcels to e-commerce companies, and sending messages to get rich, the water postal route has been changing and developing without interruption.
Tang Zhenya is 57 years old this year, and cultivating successors has become a major issue in his mind.
“Four years ago, my first apprentice ran away. The work was hard and the salary was low. The apprentice said,’The conditions at home are not allowed. Master, let me go.'” Tang Zhenya said.
Fortunately, in May of the same year, Tang found Ding Houlong, a young man born in the 90s. Ding Houlong quit his job as a waitress in the hot spring center and joined the Laozishan branch. Four years later, Ding Houlong has been able to independently undertake land delivery tasks.
Someone asked Ding Houlong, “How do you compare to your master?” “The master is too good. I know every part of the town by heart. I have to study hard.” The tall and chubby Ding Houlong smiled. , “I am willing to endure hardship and have tenacity, and I will definitely be able to take this baton.”
As the sun sets, the sunset glow dyes the lake an orange red. Old Tang and Xiaoding on the shore, with two postal greens, are extremely harmonious with this lake view.
Secure basic public services and weave a dense network
On the first day I went to Laozishan Town to interview Tang Zhenya, I saw that the branch was full of express parcels. E-commerce has developed rapidly in recent years, and fishermen’s shopping methods have become more diversified. However, the “last mile” service is costly and difficult. Only China Post, regardless of gains or losses, insists on setting up 3/4 of its outlets in rural areas to allow postal routes to cover the motherland. On the ground, every family can enjoy regular and high-quality basic postal services. According to statistics, in 2020, China Post will provide 1.42 billion pieces of correspondence services such as letters and printed materials, 20.306 million pieces of ordinary parcel services, and universal postal services covering more than 1.4 billion people.
my country’s unique political and institutional advantages can more effectively promote the equalization of basic public services. There are many basic public services like postal services: In the UHV era, the country has continued to promote rural power grid renovation projects, increasing the power supply reliability of rural power grids to 99
