Bert Cooper, the director of Community Seeds of Lone Oak, a faith-based organization, has a new welding class underway.  Bert says students can join the class until May 11, as long as openings remain.  He says a previously homeless person who received training from an earlier welding class is now earning $350 per hour.  There is a shortage of three million welders in the U.S., Bert says.
