We are losing half a million jobs per week.  It is hard to tell how many are being hired because most are cutting back or shutting down.  You simply can't have a domestic service economy and sustain this magnitudeo of job/wage cuts and not completely destroy the economy in relative short order.  [more]

HAMILTON COUNTY- A local nursing home faces serious financial problems. Administrators say the facility may have to close.

The Hamilton Memorial Nursing Center in McLeansboro says the facility is losing $40,000 a month because of low state medicaid reimbursements.

The center employs 50 people and another 50 call it home; but administrators aren't sure how much longer it will be able to stay open.

"We wouldn't have this financial situation if the state would be paying the money they're supposed to be paying," says CEO Randy Dauby.
