    My wife works at the local telephone co. (small area--2500 or so customers) there was 33 working there untill last thursday, they told 2 that evening at 4:45 that was their last day (they are going to buy them out in retirement) then the next day they had a lunch time meeting with pizza served then had a monitor display showing the companies problems and then had 6 more names pop up and announced these people were done also--that day! I thought that was very tasteless and cold---another meeting tuesday---who knows---I think the wife is safe for now but nothing is for sure----there has never been cutbacks in this commpany before---times are tough.

    I'll keep her and the other employees in my thoughts, and hope that most of them can stay on the job.
