    Ummm... didn't you just lay off Rob Neal a few months ago from this very gig? Or something close to it?

    There were layoffs early in the year, but this isn't the gig Robert held. Similar position but not the same. TJ Gerlach is leaving to work for Tulsa Public Schools. We're filling his position.

    Thanks for the explanation. Went to school with Rob and it startled me to see a position he held being advertised.
