All the Contractors on the Chino and Tyrone properties were sent home last week. Several hundred local people also worked for these contractors, let not forget about them.

Alpha M has a point. Many of our local famiies are going to be impacted by local and regional layoffs associated with these unfortunate economic times. It could get worse before it gets better. Let's hope not.
