How has this poor economy affected you?

For the past several years, Times/Review Newspapers has carried numerous stories about the effects of the Great Recession on various business segments.

We would like to personalize the issue and tell readers’ stories. Have you lost a job; been threatened with or experienced foreclosure on your home; had your salary frozen; had to drop out of college for lack of tuition? What steps have you taken to survive this economy and how have fluctuating gas prices affected your life? What are you doing to make ends meet and what are you doing without because you can’t afford to buy what you need?

If you’re willing to tell your story, send a brief e-mail quickly recapping your experiences and providing your telephone number and e-mail address. Your comments should be sent to [email protected].
