TIFTON - The Georgia Agrirama is going through tough economic times, so it's cutting back on hours. School children from were back out at the living history museum in Tifton Tuesday, sawing wood, sweeping floors and cleaning dishes. Short on state funds, Agrirama had to close Monday and won't be open Mondays for at least two months.

Kim Littleton, Agrirama Director, said, "Basically had to make adjustments because of allotment from state being cut because of budget reduction."

"We need funding because every teacher tells me this so great," Hayesland Morton, a Historical interpreter said.

The part time work force made up of mostly senior citizens will likely lose about 8 hours a week from their paychecks until normal hours return. Agrirama's director says they've been able to reschedule all class trips scheduled for Mondays this month and next.
