Ford Jobs to Sheffield Lake/Cool Wednesday/Elderly Woman Kicked out of the Church

Production of Ford's F650/F-750 trucks at the Ohio Assembly Plant, previously built in Mexico, has secured more than 1,000 hourly UAW jobs in northeast Ohio. The new F-650/F-750 medium-duty trucks roll off the line at the Sheffield Lake Assembly Plant Wednesday for the first time in the United States.  "Our investment in Ohio Assembly Plant reinforces our commitment to building vehicles in America and to delivering best-in-class commercial trucks," said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president, The Americas. "Working with our partners in the UAW, we found a way to make the costs competitive enough to bring production of a whole new generation of work trucks to Ohio." Ford is the only medium-duty truck manufacturer that designs and builds its own diesel engine and transmission combination - ensuring the powertrain will work seamlessly with all chassis components and ehicle calibrations. Ford's commercial vehicle lineup is America's best-selling commercial trucks for 30 straight years.

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -A 92-year-old woman is no longer allowed to worship at the church where she was a member for more than 50 years because she was not tithing. Josephine King said that was the reason she was kicked out of Bainbridge's First African Baptist Church.  Her family members said they hope the situation will bring change to churches across the nation. "Josephine King is no longer considered a member of the First African Baptist Church of Bainbridge, Georgia," read Gerald Simmons, as he skimmed over the letter addressed to his aunt. The letter, signed by Senior Pastor Derrick Mike, stated that Ms. King "has shown non-support" towards the church in the areas of "constant and consistent financial and physical participation." "She was stunned. She was disappointed. She was shocked," said Simmons. He said Ms. King was considered sick and a shut-in for several months, which was the reason for her lack of attendance. He also said his aunt had gone above and beyond in the past to financially support the church. "You shouldn't chase the individuals down," said Simmons.
