Timothy Lade will accept a position as bus driver and counselor at The Salvation Army this summer. Lade 68, says that the SA has had budget cut backs and like so many other business and agency's suffering in the bad economy the SA is no exception. Lade has worked for the charity for the last 5 summers as strictly a bus driver and was seeking to continue his part time work again this summer.
In an effort to cut costs the SA will combine two bus driving jobs with two counselor jobs on a limited term. There's nothing new with the limited term as the positions all ended with the summer season before. Lade's colleague, referred to only as Elvin anxiously accepted the position commenting on what he thought was a great opportunity it was to work with the clients instead of just driving them around.
Lade on the other hand cautiously accepted the position noting that he was keeping his options open for a different summer job more in line with what he was accustomed to. Should Lade eventually remain working for the SA the job would entail working 40 hours a week, something Lade is not anxious to do since he is retired. Lade now works part time at Lamer's Bus Lines and is employed 20 hours a week.
Lade's wife Joanne, 50 would be glad to see her spousal unit spend more time out of the house, she said when asked about her thoughts on the job offer. Joanne is a legal representative for Humanna

insurance but works from her home located in the upscale neighborhood of Allouez Heights. Joanne Lade: "Threatening clients with legal action all day while I try to make their claims look like fraud is demanding work, and I don't need Tim wandering around whinning about his hunger pains to distract and slow me down."
Lade has not blatantly said he will not be enthused about the position and says he needs to learn more about the job. While Lade is comfortable with the bus driving part of the job he is somewhat curious about the counseling duties of his employment. Tim Lade: "If they want me to counsel people on I Phone operation or Internet surfing I can handle that, but if it's drugs or alcohol abuse not so much."
