Logan Correctional, Center is slated to close by the end of the year but some Lincoln residents don't understand why. Mike Maniscalco [[MAN-ih-SKAL-koh]], with the Lincoln Logan Economic Development Partnership, says the prison offers the best paying jobs around and the economy will suffer if they're eliminated.

Maniscalco says he understands the need for shared sacrifice when cutting budgets, but he says this decision doesn't make sense. He says more than three thousand people have signed a petition to keep the prison from closing. The economic development partnership will also host a march on Thursday to raise awareness of a state hearing on the prison, scheduled for October 26th.
