There are still little towns out there not getting the attention they deserve and are flying under the radar and suffering. Dubois Pa is one of them. Following is two links to the local media there please I encourage you all to email them and tell them about this company and why this property deserves the attention. This property has lost its flag as well, and currently closed because no water or electric as well is the typical Kronos unpaid venders and employees. As a grp how can they ignore us. Television Media : email@example.com Newspaper (I did have a few words with these people) Here is a direct quote from them.....please take special note to "The only one who stands up for you is you" That really really rubs me the wrong way...so email him twice. Make sure to start at the bottom of the following text and read up firstname.lastname@example.org " From: Denny Bonavita To: Tom Showalter Sent: Saturday, October 18, 2008 8:02 PM Subject: Re: Clarion Inn Dubois When companies go under, people get screwed: Employees, creditors, etc. It would be unethical of me to disclose whether the hotel owes us money, but employees aren’t alone. The only one who stands up for you is you. That’s the way it is. On 10/18/08 7:54 PM, "Tom Showalter" wrote: Ok what about the people that cant get paid? This isnt just about the business...there are people that cant pay bills.... I do understand what you are saying I am just very confused as to why noone will stand up for these people.

I am writing to ask you that you look into a story on the Clarion Inn Dubois Pa. They are the ones with no utilities for lack of payment. This is the way the company that owns them operates all across the United States. A web site has been created www.kronoshotelsllc.com > http://www.kronoshotelsllc.com for employees across the country that worked for this company to come to so they know they are not alone. The web site has been a huge success and has even been covered by several media outlets http://www.wave3.com/Global/story.asp?S=9177871&nav=menu31_2 is one of them. Please watch the video on that page. With the combined effort of everyone involved Kronos has now lost 16 of their properties and more on the way. Unfortunately they still have properties. One right under your nose in Dubois PA. The Former Clarion Inn (Choice Hotels Pulled their franchise flag yet the owners will not remove it and try to represent themselves as a Clarion Inn still. Which to my knowlege is shut down due to no Water and a few other Utilities. Choice Hotels International was supposed to come and remove their systems but was unable to do since the property is completely shut down. Alot of people lost jobs because of this company. The have been bouncing payroll checks, not paying unemployment tax, not reporting state wages, FBI has been confirmed to be investigating them, health insurance premiums have been deducted even though there had not been health insurance in months, people have been thrown in Jail for child support payments that have been deducted from their check yet never sent in, etc....this is everywhere. Its little towns like Dubois that get overlooked. Please bring some attention to them. Help the former employees there whom I speak to on a daily basis. Just go to the site and see how they have operated across the United States and draw your own conclusion. If this is not something you are interested in then please just reply to me and let me know so I can start looking at other avenues. Thank you so much for this time and I beg of you bring some attention to this property so that maybe just maybe the pressure can cause what has happened at 16 other properties can happen there as well and bring closure to some of these people.

unethical, getting up from your desk and just driving over there would be a hassle huh?
Hey Erin Brockovich took on Pacific gas and electric by herself and won so I guess there still is hope for those whom watch out for themselves. This site is proof positive that everybody is not as lazy and narrow minded.
