Jeffboat layoffs

Jeffboat is laying off about 10 percent of its work force at its barge-making operation in Jeffersonville, Ind.

This announcement didn't surprise me, as I have noticed the number of barges tied to the bank in my part of the Ohio River. 

The layoffs don't affect the transportation division.

This reminds me of an old-time story that geezers like me start to tell, and young folks on the receiving end give you that smile like they're thinking, "Finish this boring story, please." So I'll let it go.
