    my son works at a resort in Sandusky he just told me the news going round is Great Wolf Lodge is closing. This lodge employs a lot of people and is a year round resort. Pretty soon Ohio is going to be a ghost town

    That was my thinking also! I moved from Toledo, OH. to Flint, MI last spring, I thought it was bad in Ohio untill I moved to MI, then I realize what a ghost town really is. So many people have left the state because of lack of work, and hundreds of businesses have closed down, its unreal.

    Yes, our state is in sad shape. We are blessed to still have jobs here. Hubby works for the county and I groom dogs. I've lost alot of customers because of moving away or their pet passes on and they can't afford another one. Very sad state here.

    We are so lucky here in Montana. We have not been hit like so many other states have.

    I am so sorry to hear this :(
    Great Wolf Lodge out here employs a lot too, they seem to be busy, but they are right on a main interstate...

    Didn't I see a Rachel Ray special, the she visited Wilmington and helped out a food pantry there? I have a couple of friends that woerked at DHL as well, they are OK by opening a small business that is so far doing OK.
