Budget stalemate leads college looking at faculty layoffs at John A. Logan Community College - Rachael Krause, WPSD

No one wants to get a letter saying the job they held for the better part of two decades could soon be cut because of Illinois' budget impasse. Dozens of faculty members at John A Logan College received letters Monday telling them they could soon be out of a job. For one family, that tough break came not once, but twice. It's been a surreal day at the office for Angie Calcaterra. She says she's in shock after coming home Monday to find a letter telling her the job she's held at John A Logan College for more than 15 years would likely be cut. "I've been bursting into tears at unexpected moments," said Calcaterra. She's the coordinator of the deaf and hard of hearing program, as well as an academic adviser at John A Logan College. Calcaterra says she braced for this, but when she came home yesterday, she found two letters instead of one. "So it didn't come as a complete surprise when I got mine, but when I saw my husband's, that was shocking," she said.
