HEBER SPRINGS, AR - More jobs are being cut at the Bosch-Skill power tools plant in Heber Springs.

Seventy-one workers there have been informed that their jobs will be eliminated in January, bringing the loss of jobs at the plant to about 120 since January of this year.  The jobs are being cut due to the company's decision to move production of its circular saws and other products to China.

The plant is expected to shut down at some point in 2007.
