Business: Wichita mobilizes to lessen effects of Boeing layoffs Wichita Boeing Co. has yet to decide how many of its Wichita workers will lose their jobs, but city officials mobilized Friday to minimize the economic impact of the layoffs on the community. Wichita Mayor Bob Knight announced Friday the creation of a task force to bring together federal, state and local resources to help displaced workers in the economic aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The city also may try to boost the economy by accelerating its own $1.1 billion capital improvement program in an effort to create more jobs, he said. Boeing announced earlier this week that it plans to lay off about 30,000 workers nationwide in the wake of the terrorist attacks that devastated the already weak airline industry. Boeing employs 17,400 people at its Wichita facility. __________________________ Community: Neighborhood mail stopped after conflicts with dogs Wichita The U.S. Postal Service has suspended delivery to a Wichita neighborhood where letter carriers have encountered aggressive dogs. Although no letter carriers have been bitten in Oaklawn this year, delivery to four neighborhood blocks is over until “someone from the community assures us that there is no longer a dog problem,” said postal spokeswoman Michelle Brasser. Brasser said several letter carriers have either encountered aggressive dogs or injured themselves trying to avoid one. The postal service will give residents three options: move their mailboxes closer to their property line, have their mail forwarded to another Wichita location, or rent a P.O. box at a post office, Brasser said. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.549 at Jayhawk Food Mart, 701 W. Ninth St. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154. Be prepared to leave the name and address of the business and the price.
