An unspecified number of employees reported to work there today to find out they were out of a job.

Steve Smallshaw is in Lynchburg tonight.. Steve what reasons does the company give for this?

Jean, a spokesman for J. Crew says the layoffs are the result of a downturn in its mail order market.. and that the local distribution center was basically overstaffed.
(--------------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Lynchburg]


The last figures show the Lynchburg-area facility had about a thousand year-round employees.
J. Crew would not say how many employees were being let go today, but one caller to our office said the number was a significant percentage.
The company spokesman says customers are increasingly buying J. Crew products through its retail stores and not by catalog or over the Internet.
The layoffs, he says, are part of an overall restructuring that has been taking place at the New York-based company since Millard Drexler took over as its C-E-O last year.

[SUPER=03-Bucharest, Romania;]


The medical team is led by a renowned American plastic surgeon- Eleven doctors in all will work for 20 hours to remove the benign tumor.
Doctors first must remove the tumor and make sure there is enough blood available in case the patient loses too much.
Surgeons must then cover the hole that's left- that'll amount to almost 40 percent of the woman's body.
The 46 year old woman's normal weight without the tumor is just under 98 pounds. She suffers from a rare genetic disease Von Reckling-hausen's disease.
The Discovery channel agreed to foot the cost of the operation in exchange for the film rights.
