SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Word that negotiations resulted in an agreement to end the government shutdown put furloughed workers in a good mood.

Tony Camarena said he will have a much happier weekend.

Workers called it a rough few weeks.

Federal workers are being asked to return to their usual schedule as soon as Thursday morning.

Reaction to the settlement was mixed.

Some people are thrilled it is over.

Others say they have lost confidence in their elected leaders.

Many people said they think history will repeat itself again and again due to the bi-partisan bickering in Congress.
