Furlough Friday, This Friday

Because of the state budget crunch, it has been mandated by the State Supreme Court that Court Service Employees be placed on unpaid involuntary leave – or furloughed.

This Friday, April 9th is the first of 4-Fridays in April and May that the District Court offices will be shut down.

The only people allowed to come to work, the judges and they won’t be accessible because the doors will be locked and no phones will be answered.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
