Focus on the Family announces more job cuts

     DENVER (AP) - Focus on the Family says it's eliminating 49 more
jobs because of declining donations, reducing its total number of
employees to 650.
     The Christian ministry founded by Dr. James Dobson employed
1,400 people in 2002.
     The Denver Post reports that Focus on the Family had a $105
million budget for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, but officials
project it will receive donations of only $90 million to $95
million.
     Focus on the Family airs a daily radio program and provides
counseling and educational services.
     The 75-year-old Dobson left Focus last year and launched a new
program -- Family Talk.
     He suffered numerous broken bones this month in a horseback
riding accident, but Shirley Dobson says on Family Talk's website
that her husband won't need surgery and should be back on the air
soon.
