Va. Institute of Marine Science to cut jobs
GLOUCESTER, Va. - The Virginia Institute of Marine Science will cut 16 positions in January while losing 10 additional faculty positions that won't be filled, all because of the slashing of $6.1 million in state funding over the course of two years.

It's a shame this had to happen. A consequence of a bad economy. I think VIMS is an asset to the county. While there isn't any tax revenue, they do provide jobs for the local economy, both permament and construction. I would like to see the county do more to showcase this as it could be a feather in the county's cap.

The county is already stretched to the limit of it's ability. Maybe the Gazette Journal could be of assistance?

There are a lot of things the county could do that doesn't cost money. Promote it through the EDA, put some of the accomplishments on their website through the Economic Development Department, partnership with the county's school system with educational opportunities, internships, etc (they already do it with RCC). I'm sure there are other things that could be done.
