Impact of corporate merger unclear

It is too soon to tell whether a proposed merger between R.R. Donnelley and Moore Wallace will affect Donnelley's Danville plant, according to a company spokesman.

The merger is expected to be complete in late March.

No massive plant consolidations are expected because the companies make different products, said Katherine Divita, a Donnelly spokeswoman.

Donnelley prints and distributes magazines at its Danville plant. Moore Wallace prints statements and labels, like phone bills.

The merger could create a company that has more than $8 billion in annual revenues and 50,000 employees worldwide. The company will retain the Donnelley name and its headquarters will be in Chicago.

New clinic offers health care to poor

BEREA (AP) - Volunteers have opened a health clinic here that will serve people in Garrard, Madison and five other counties who don't have medical insurance.


Berea College nursing students came up with the idea for the clinic after working in the community and seeing so many people without access to medical care, said Cora Newell-Withrow, volunteer president of the nonprofit organization.

The Berea Rural Health Ministries is for the uninsured or Medicaid or Medicare recipients who cannot find a doctor who will treat them.

Five years in the planning, the clinic is expected to serve about 30 patients a day from Garrard, Madison, Estill, Clay, Jackson, Laurel and Rockcastle counties and, within a few years, open satellite offices in those counties.
