CONGRESS OKS CECIL FIELD MONEY

Congress approved $4 million yesterday for the cleanup and redevelopment of the former Cecil Field Naval Air Station, according to a news release from Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala.

The money would pay for on-site demolition, stormwater management and road improvements at the 17,224-acre site off Interstate 10 and Chaffee Road, near the Clay County-Duval County line.

The city could spend about $30 million in infrastructure expenses during the first five years to make improvements to the Cecil property, city officials have said.

The government decided to close the base in 1993, and the city took over the property last year

The site was divided into four parcels: 641 acres for a conservation area in Clay County; 6,081 acres for the Cecil Field airport; 2,190 acres for Jacksonville Parks and Recreation Department; and 8,312-acre for Cecil Commerce Center. The commerce center will be used for industrial, residential, retail, office and aviation purposes.

Among the Dow's biggest gainers yesterday were its tech components with IBM gaining $2.28 to $114.43, Microsoft rising $2.04 to $64.84, and Hewlett-Packard rising $1.23 to $21.40.

AT&T EMPLOYEES FILE LAWSUITS

More than 50 AT&T Corp. employees in nine states have charged the company with discrimination, and another 100 are preparing to file complaints with the federal government.

The complaints filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission set the stage for federal lawsuits against the New York-based telecommunications giant, a law firm representing the workers said.

The employees allege they were sexually harassed and discriminated against on the basis of race, gender, disability and national origin, said attorney Lenard Leeds, whose Carle Place, N.Y., firm is representing the workers. About one in four have been fired.

The workers began filing their complaints with the EEOC in late October, including 12 on Wednesday, bringing the total so far to 52. Another group will file complaints next week, making a total of 150 likely to bring cases to the EEOC by year's end, Leeds said.

The workers making the allegations live in Arizona, Georgia, Colorado, California, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, the law firm said. …
