Special note: Due to newer Apple IOS 8.1 OS mobile platform upgrade...
It's not possible to view and read an entire newsletters. Don't blame Apple... everyone else should try keeping up with Apple.
You can "view" in the regular page view on this site... yet it will "not allow" fullscreen viewing?...SO, I've devised a workaround is to download and read the PDF newsletter you wish.
To read by name only a decade/group: "Click" the colored text years you wish to download and read below, which is are PDF files.
Or go to the years in the above listing (black bar on top of page, pick a decade and follow each years instructions).
There ARE now instructions and options for each year and simple instruction to get the most from this site, per years of newsletters. These listing below are a direct route to PDF files for iPad users
1980- 1989 1990-2001

Sorry for the challenges. Yet that's life...workarounds.
THIS site is not designed for iPhone, or other mobile devices, other then the tablets (due to the larger screen size) and very content rich format
April issue of 1974 ... who are these "characters" from the Land of Oz...in this case - the Omaha Works. Check the newsletter to see if you can find the names. I think I know 2 of the three? Initials are D.M. and J.C.and unknown employee. Click on image to go to that year.
Updated the list of known Omaha Works General Managers, V.Pres. of Manufacturing or other titles. Sad news... was the last V. Pres. of Manufacturing here in Omaha, whom I had the opportunity to work with and was on the board of directors of Avaya back in 2000 was Stephan Clark, who just a few months ago passed away in his home in Texas as told to me by a former employee and current employee of CommScope. I've updated the list with this information on this page. Also we lost another
Jack McKinnon, and a engineering manager:
Earl McLean in 2014.
If you have more factual information...please email me.
Found another manager after Manager Frank LeFebre:
Manager: Warren Corgan

Life Members Luncheon for December 4th at the Westside Community Center - ALL retirees welcome ...
I thought about calling this informational website:
2014 GOALS... Now going into 2015?
Trying to simplify the home page... a work in progress, yet so much to share...it still come down to those newsletters I do not have...MAYBE you do?
I would prefer the "PHYSICAL" newsletter, photographs, video tape or DVD if possible".
If your package is to large, I will give you a different physical address if needed, after you send an email requesting
Or maybe we can meet to exchange paper/tapes.
ALL information is returned... trust me.
Anyone remember all those types of shirts we sold at the Pioneer Store, or were awards for performing some great task?
Here's one I found... only WE kept adding more companies
later on. If you've got one, contact me to include an image here. I do remember we had a tan/light brown
"Cabinet Workshop" shirt?...
anyone got a photo..email mail it to me.
During the operational time of the Omaha Works
(1958-2004). This facility employed over 7000 + employees at one time.
Where did we park all those now "collectible cars"?
Answer ... Six separate parking lots!
How many anniversaries did we celebrate, and what was the time intervals ?
To my knowledge: 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 years..evidently every
5 years of our manufacturing existence under different names - W.E., AT&T, Lucent and Avaya?
Additional information to share...
This could be other retirement activities... such as
breakfast or lunch meetings, social events, sports related events (golf/bowling) or other information of
what all former employees of this facility are doing
in retirement or after work.
