NORTH MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- A wholesale printing company in southern Minnesota says it's eliminating 114 positions.

Carlson Craft of North Mankato made the layoffs Thursday in its effort to adapt to the current economic downturn.

Besides the economy, General Manager Barb Kaus says in a statement that consumers' needs have changed, and that the restructuring is needed to focus on new technology.

The company, which is part of Taylor Corp., makes printed stationery products and personalized accessories.

It was founded as Carlson Letter Service in 1948.

How much longer do we have to go down the wrong road Democrats? Obama? Cancel your Stimulus bill pronto, your plan has been the failure it was predicted to be.

Even McCain, who admitted he didn't understand economics, knew not to raise anyone's taxes in a recession. Furthermore, you could learn a lot from that dummy, because you Democrats are even stupider when it comes to common sense economics.

We Americans obviously need a business friendly environment, something very foreign to Democrat logic

Every time I read a story like this I wonder how many voted for 0. Maybe I am being an ass, but I tend to think that if they voted for 0, they deserve it.

Yes, but Arizona State University got a huge chunk of the stimulus package. All they plan to do with it is avoid faculty and staff furloughs. So, rather than take the opportunity trim the fat, they instead are squandering the stimulus on faculty that rarely show up to work!!!!

Obama will claim the jobs that weren’t eliminated were jobs “saved” by the stimulus. And no one in the press will call him on it.

I wouldn’t disagree, except to the extent of the corrupt and lazy members of the media propping up Democrats, while doing everything possible to put the Republicans in a negative light
