The 78-person Global Supply Chain Services team was notified of the move Thursday, said Emily Caruso, a Lockheed Martin spokeswoman. "Our goal is to make offers to all qualified employees willing to relocate," Caruso said. "We'll supplement that with local hiring.

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- In a nation of movers, a country filled with people who routinely pack up the moving van and start over someplace new, this old industrial city stands proudly apart.Despite the collapse of the steel industry, the closing of the coal mines and the terror of those legendary floods, Johnstown leads the nation in the percentage of citizens who have lived in the same house for 30 years or more.Not just the same town. The same house. Since the Eisenhower administration."Even during the hard times, people opted to stick it out and stay here," said William Findley, who compiles unemployment data for the Pennsylvania labor department's Bureau of Research and Statistics in Johnstown.

Here's a trip for the experienced traveler who's seen and done it all. Sure, you've flown around the world in a jumbo jet, sailed across the ocean on a cruise ship and seen the countryside by train. Maybe you've traveled by a horse and buggy, hot air balloon, monorail or even by camel. But have you ever traveled on a funicular? A funicular, also known as an inclined plane, is a vertical railroad used to transport people or cargo up and down a mountain. Unlike a cable car or gondola that one might find at a ski resort, the cars on funiculars are pulled by cables along a railroad track instead of being suspended from a cable.

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- They take war seriously at the American Legion Hall in downtown Johnstown. If there's ever a place to find support for U.S. troops, it's here. But regulars at the post's dark corner bar applauded Rep. John P. Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat, for urging the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq. Elsewhere in town, some raged at Murtha for turning on a war they still supported. "Crazy," said one constituent. "Traitor," said several callers to his district office. But people in Murtha's blue-collar, coal-and-steel country district in west Pennsylvania mostly signaled weariness for the war. They endorse the man who has represented them since he became the first Vietnam veteran elected to Congress in 1974.
