Ralph,

Let me explain the way hi-technology works in the auto industry.

Robots and cost efficiency have made production line workers obsolete.

You can put 2000 welds on car, without the robot ever taking a break or asking for a pay raise.

The older factories are 100 million sq feet, when you need only 3 million.

They are superfund sites.

They get sold.

Maybe this will give you some hope, Ralph old boy. And hey, Ohio may have lost out on the Calisolar deal, but Mississippi won. So the prosperity did go somewherein the greater U.S. Isn't that what's important? I mean, if we're going to be concerned with ALL states in this country and not just our own neck of the woods. You're all for that, right?:

"Progress seen toward GM sale

Ontario officials pursue GM plant sale

ONTARIO -- Mayor Larry Collins has received a letter from a lead developer outlining the company's proposal to bring tenants and jobs to the former General Motors plant.

Ontario officials working on a deal to sell the former General Motors stamping plant said the letter shows they are making rapid progress.

"It's really the beginning of the process. It's a fact-finding mission we're on and the paper we've received is a proposal. It is not a binding agreement," Collins said. "We're trying to protect the interests of the community in making sure what jobs are coming are really coming."

The News Journal requested a copy of the letter, which is a public document, and could receive it today.

Bruce Rasher, redevelopment manager of the trust overseeing the property sale, said a potential buyer could become known publicly before a sales agreement is signed. Two buyer groups are moving through the process, Rasher said.

"One party is starting to move out in front of the other," he said.

Rasher said the sale of the former General Motors stamping plant on West Fourth Street could happen this year. Collins and Ontario economic development committee chairman Mark Weidemyre will go to Florida to visit a facility the lead development group has under way there.

"We're going to check out the prospects firsthand to get a feel for whether they can produce the number of jobs they say they can and to get a better feel for what they manufacture and what they can do for the community," Weidemyre said. "We want to ensure that the developers will perform as they have promised, and if they do not, we have some form of recourse. We want to ensure the facility is put back into reuse and not merely allowed to be demolished for scrap."

Rasher said there is light at the end of the tunnel.

"A lot has to happen between now and pushing the ball across the end zone, and there's no guarantee that we will," Rasher said. "We're definitely going in the right direction with both buyers. We're just going to have to continue to work the process and keep things on track and, hopefully, things will come together."

Rasher said he has asked both parties to contact Collins.

"I am aware that Mayor Collins has met with both parties at least once and those are the discussions which are taking place now," Rasher said. "This is significant that these discussions are even taking place."

Rasher said as things progress, the city will draft a development agreement with the potential buyer, which puts the city in the position of holding the buyer accountable.

"If we get a signal from the city that they're comfortable that they will do what they say they will do, then we will execute a purchase and sale agreement," Rasher said. "We've focused mainly on two different buyer groups who the trust feels have satisfied all of the six criteria we have."

Rasher did not make public the identity of the developers because of confidentiality agreements with the trust.

A year ago the community was staggered when a California company, Calisolar, withdrew from a proposal to take over the facility and bring more than 1,000 jobs to the area.

That company is now working with Mississippi to build a manufacturing plant."

I understand Calisolar went belly up like the other green energy companies. Obama has had his "Fair shot" at fixing things like he said he could and it is time for a change. His first lie was transparency then passed the health care behind closed doors with no public input.

Putting out more false information Ralph, and without proof. You are incorrect in saying that Calisolar went belly up. All they did was change their name. http://www.silicormaterials.com/

Interesting to say about links since there are two postings with links and you haven't responded to either of them. They say them have another buyer for the local GM plant and if the deal goes through there will be 850 jobs. Does make up for the 5,000 lost but it is a start. One nation UNDER God.

Not unusual for a company that goes belly up to try and start up under a different name. Obama might give them more money.

Well, not so with this one. They even say on their website that they changed their name. Nothing to do with going "belly up". You just want to make things so that just aren't. And it galls you when someone calls you out on it. But not enough for you to be ashamed of yourself for lying in the first place.

GM recalls Cruze cars over risk of engine fire

General Motors announced June 22, 2012, that it is recalling 2011 and 2012 models of its Cruze cars because of risk of engine fires.(GM)
(CBS/AP) DETROIT - A risk of engine fires is forcing General Motors (GM) to recall its popular Chevrolet Cruze compact car.

The recall covers the 2011 and 2012 model years and affects more than 475,000 cars, which have ranked among the top-selling U.S. compacts over the past two years.

The fires can ignite when fluids, mainly oil spilled when it is being changed, drip onto a hot plastic shield below the engine, the company said Friday. GM knows of 30 fires caused by the problem. Flames engulfed and destroyed cars in two cases reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. No injuries have been reported, spokesman Alan Adler said.

To eliminate the risk of fires, dealers will cut the shield to let the fluids drain to the pavement, GM said. The repairs take about 30 minutes and are free, the company said.

Cruzes with completely worn-out manual transmissions also can leak fluid onto the shields in rare cases, GM said.

"The most important thing for our customers to know is that we are proactively working to assure the Cruze is the safe and durable car they purchased," said GM vice president of Global Quality Alicia Boler-Davis in a statement. "We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by these actions."

The recall includes cars built from September of 2010 through May of 2012 at GM's Lordstown, Ohio, assembly plant. They were sold in the U.S., Canada, and Israel.

The Cruze is a strong competitor in a market where GM has fallen short in the past. The car came out in 2010 and was the top-selling compact in the U.S. from May through September last year.

But sales have started to fall as more Toyota Corollas and Honda Civics become available. Both were scarce after a 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan hobbled production
