About 75 Calhoun residents will be losing their jobs at Spencer's Goodrich plant, along with nearly 75 others. Christine Probett, a vice-president, told the workers that the decision to close the plant is final.

Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito who visited the plant this week did not seem hopeful the company could be convinced to leave the plant in Spencer.

Talk is beginning about extended unemployment benefits and other perks given to workers who loose their jobs.

Gov. Bob Wise is expected to meet with company officials, in addition to continued efforts by workers, union representatives and local officials to keep the plant going.

The plant will close in late 2002, according to company officers.
