    I read a article on AOL in the finance section that there is a rumor about a hedge fund billionaire name John Paulson buying a interest in YRC anyone else hear anything about this. I looked this guy up online and all he seems to do is make money. He made billions will everyone else was loosing their shirts. I don't know what this means but maybe it could be good news.

    I was told the other day that fedex freight is moving into the Holland terminal in North East Pa. ( Erie Pa.) Also was told the terminal is and has been owned by R & L for some time now. They are suppose to move in around Christmas.

    buying usf

    I work for upgf or ups freight and haven't heard anything along the lines of buying the usf line. All we here is they are planning on closing the usf holland company after the first of the year to down size. I am a road driver out of the chicago land area!

    That is a nice first post for you. To come on here and tell us how they are closing us down.:loser:

    Yep, it sure would make a lot of sense to close down one of your only sources of income now wouldn't it?

    We will probably go down with the ship, but we won't be going down while the non-profitable survive. IMO
