I hope they'll keep the CPM steels going, I don't know if an "investment group" is going to be interested in that.

Dude, Syracuse is my home town - Crucible is just east of town near the fairgrounds.

It's a tough economic environment up there. My brother just lost his job in SYR.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Remind ya of Buffalo years ago?
Seems like everything's just closed up and gone elsewhere.

Hoping Crucible can pull through this.

I hate to see anyone lose their job. I hope they can pull it out. US Steel had a plant near me and they have closed it down already with no immediate plans to try to reopen.

Yes, NY has taken a pretty significant hit over the years.

I remember the GM auto parts plant moving to Buffalo from Syracuse - that hurt. Singer Sewing Machines moved to Mexico, etc, etc.

Allied Chemical and Squibb Pharmaceuticals are still hangin' in there.
