GROUND BROKEN FOR LEARNING CENTER AT FORD PLANT

 LIMA, Ohio, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- For about 2,400 employees at Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) Lima Engine Plant here, it will be like having a college campus right on plant property. They will be the main beneficiaries of the new Learning Center that will be built on a half acre of land on the plant's 327-acre site.
 Ohio Governor George Voinovich, Ford and UAW officials, and other state and local dignitaries participated in a groundbreaking ceremony today for the $4.3 million facility made possible by a grant from Ohio's Legislative Capital Improvement Fund. The center is a joint program of Ford, UAW Local 1219 and Lima Technical College.
 Joining the governor for the ceremony were J. Craig Hausman, Ford vice president of Employee Relations; Robert H. Transou, vice president and general manager of Ford's Powertrain Operations; Joe Reilly, administrative assistant of the UAW's Ford Department; Jack Sizemore, director of UAW Region 2B; Lima Mayor David Berger, and a number of state and local legislators.
 Most of the plant's employees gathered on the front lawn for the ceremony. They will use the center for job training and to continue their education, but the center also will be open to employees of other businesses and industries and residents in the community.
 Paul A. Edwards is currently manager of the plant, which opened in 1957. It manufactures four types of car and truck engines that power 10 different Ford vehicles.
