Conspiracy or Coincidence

Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Fiat SpA, Italy’s biggest manufacturer, plans a two-week production halt at its five domestic car factories starting late next month after vehicle orders declined in January.

Fiat’s orders for new cars this month are “even lower” than a year earlier, an official at the Turin-based company said today by phone, declining to specify figures.

NOW THIS.......

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Toyota suspended U.S. sales of some of its most popular vehicles -- including the best-selling car in America, the Camry -- to fix sticking gas pedals that could make the cars accelerate without warning.

In another blow to the world's No. 1 automaker, Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday it would halt some production at six assembly plants beginning the week of Feb. 1 "to assess and coordinate activities."

Probably just a coincidence.......those Italians always shoot off the line too early anyway.

America keeps shutting down during Benny the B's recovery.

Over the objections of thousands of protesters, the city Education Department's panel voted early Wednesday morning to close 19 failing city schools.

It's a place for troubled teens to turn to, but now we've learned it's closing.  Tuesday, Newschannel 9 confirmed that Cumberland Hall is shutting it doors at the end of this month.

A nurse at Cumberland Hall tells us they found out last Wednesday that in less than 2 weeks, the hospital would be closed.  That leaves about 70 employees without work, and about 30 children without the help they're used to.

Diana Emery says, "I got a phone call, have you heard we're closing our doors, as of January 31st, there will be no more kids here, that was 11 days, so everyone was kind of in shock."

Emery worked at Cumberland Hall for about 5 years, as a part time licensed practical nurse helping kids between the ages of 11 and 17 who've had hard times.  She says the private facility takes in those who've suffered sexual, physical, or drug abuse, when other places turn them away.  But now, those teens are being turned away from this hospital and school.
