I am writing as a very upset Santa Barbara Bank and Trust retiree. I worked hard and put my next work schedule on hold so I could retiree from the bank with my health care needs taken care of. Only to receive a letter, which my husband had to sign for, telling me that they are reducing our benefits. I am very upset that Santa Barbara Bank and Trust reward their top management by giving them bonuses at the expense of us hard-working retirees; meanwhile they continue to advertise the bank as a bank of the community. My fellow retirees and myself have not only seen our health care benefits affected, but our stock has gone down in value considerably. I am requesting that all previous retirees like myself get in touch with me either by email limeysue@yahoo.com, or by phone, 968-0555. To remind them who I am, I use to service all the telephones at the bank and my name then was Sue Hoskins.—Sue Smiley
