The number of students signed up to attend Love INC's Back to School Fair on July 31 doubled over last year, says Bill Fetrow, Love INC.'s executive director.

About 800 students registered to "shop" for back-to-school clothing at the event, he says, up from 400 last year - an indication that many families are nearing the end of their available financial resources.

It's a continuation of a cycle that began a couple of years ago, Fetrow believes, when many area factories and businesses either shut down or made deep cuts in the number of people they employed.
