A local branch of the national manufacturing firm Leggett & Platt is implementing deep layoffs this week as the company consolidates an assembly line from the Winchester plant with another branch in Georgetown. Bob Estes, assistant general manager of the company's Ecton Road location, confirmed that layoffs took effect for 14 plant employees Tuesday afternoon and eight more office personnel will be dismissed effective at the end of the day Friday. The cutbacks follow on the heels of a round of layoffs in December in which seven workers lost jobs at the plant.

When the employees of Leggett & Platt decided to form a Relay for Life team, they thought the best way to raise money was to use their talents. “Some of our employees are also crafters, so they came up with the idea,” said team member Dawn Day. That idea led to the first Arts and Crafts for the Cure Festival, with 100 percent of vendor booth fees being donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The festival will be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the old Bundy building, 805 N. Maple St. Approximately 40 vendors who sell crafts and food have registered for the event.
