    Call us or we'll call you 

    Ohioblog seems always to be reporting job losses. Just this week the Northeast Ohio Universities College of Medicine in Rootstown announced that it was eliminating 37 jobs because of inadequate state funding. There is better news today. West Teleservices Corp., announced plans to hire about 880 customer service repretatives in a Niles call center that MCI abandoned earlier this year. In addition, Akron's Famous Distribution Inc., distributor of heating, cooling and other products to contracts, will add 30 jobs to its Sebring facility 40 miles southeast of Youngstown. The West deal is contingent on negotiating a less on the MCI building and getting an abatement from Niles and Trumbull County. Ohio used to make things out of steel and rubber. Now, we call people and answer calls. The only similarity is that it is dirty work, but someone has to do it.
