Dear Mr. Johnson,

We received your request to change the dates of your reservation at the Glenwood Resort from April 15-22 to June 20-28. Unfortunately, I have checked the database and there are no rooms available for those dates. I sincerely apologize that we can not accommodate your request; unfortunately June, July, and August are our busiest months because we offer special summer discounts. I understand that your company is relocating you to London in July and therefore you can't make a reservation for any other date. I would like to mention, however, that Phillip D. Humboldt, the owner of Glenwood Resort, recently opened another luxury resort, Woodshire Retreat, just thirty minutes outside of Mulberry. If you would like to make a reservation at this resort, the number is 1-800-238-948. Or you can make a reservation online at www.humboldthotels.com.

Attention all Club Members

The Highland Country Club regretfully informs all members that our pool will be closed from July 15 to August 25. While fixing a broken pipe, maintenance workers found a major problem with the filtration system. Unfortunately, this problem is quite complex and requires the work of a plumbing specialist. Because its plumbers are unexpectedly busy at the moment, QuickFix Plumbers, the only company that offers the service we need, will not be able to help us for another two weeks. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience, and are willing to refund the cost of one month's club membership to all individuals who paid for the 3-month Summer Membership.
Because we already offer a twenty percent discount to all members who sign up for the 1-year membership, we will not be offering these individuals a refund. Anyone who has questions or comments about the change should contacts Melvin Woods at 869-654-9874.

Michelle Hanson [11:40]
Can I get an update from everyone on the promotion project for N-Genz Auto? Our next presentation’s been moved up to Tuesday, August 10.

The script changes for the TV commercial will be done this afternoon. Other than that, I’m just waiting for production to give me permission to proceed.

 

Dustin Rodriguez [11:45]
Barry, our first choice for the lead actor backed out, so I’m waiting to hear back from the talent agency about a replacement. But still, we can proceed with our shoot on July 18 at Snappy Studios.

 

Michelle Hanson [11:47]
Thank you both. What about the online campaign? My contact at N-Genz Auto is eager to see what’s been done.

 

Willa Hopkins [11:50]
Well, I’m in the final stages of developing the Web site. I need about a week more to do the finishing touches, but I’m quite confident we’ll be done in time.

 

Dustin Rodriguez [11:54]
Good news. I called the agency and was told that my second choice for a performer can do the job.

 

Barry Carr [11:55]
Great, Dustin. I’ll send you a copy of the finished script tonight. By the way, I can’t make it on the 18th as I need to be at a client meeting, so I’ll send Brianna Johns in my place.

 

Dustin Rodriguez [11:57]
No problem, Barry. I’ll get in touch with her shortly to make further arrangements.

 

Michelle Hanson [11:58]
It looks like we are on the right track. Dustin, keep me posted on your schedule. Willa, could you send me a link to the site so I can see the progress so far?

Julianna Lopez 10:22 A.M. So, it's confirmed. We're presenting a marketing proposal to AEK on July 18 at their headquarters.
John Brenner 10:24 A.M. I heard! How exciting. I went through the company profile in the brochure you gave us. They could be our biggest client to date.
Julianna Lopez 10:25 A.M. Yes. They have 6,000 employees and manufacturing plants in Thailand, Turkey, and Mexico. They also have suppliers in China, Germany, and Korea and generated over $2 billion in sales last year.
Yvonne Bailey 10:25 A.M. I can get to work on the marketing analysis for the presentation. I'd like to use the statistics in the brochure we were given. Do you think they're reliable?
Julianna Lopez 10:26 A.M. That would be fine, Yvonne. I think the figures are accurate. John and Eric, I'd like you to prepare the slideshow and handouts. Start immediately if you can.
John Brenner 10:27 A.M. Got it. It shouldn’t take more than two days to finish.
Eric Zalewski 10:32 A.M. Consider it done, Julianna. Are we going to run through the presentation before the appointment?
Julianna Lopez 10:34 A.M. Let's do a practice session on July 15. During the presentation, I'll give the main talk, and then you three can explain your roles briefly. After that, all four of us can answer any technical or financial questions they might have. Does that sound reasonable?
Yvonne Bailey 10:34 A.M. I think that works for all of us.

John Mallet [3:45 P.M.] Hi, everyone. You'll be happy to know that management gave me approval to send some of our people to the career fair at Duluth University next month.
Janet Chan [3:48 P.M.] That's excellent news. A lot of students have probably heard of our company, since Go-C Tech is such a short distance from the campus.
John Mallet [3:52 P.M.] Exactly, however, our budget is limited, so we need to decide which departments should be represented. We can't send everyone.
Melissa Kovac [3:55 P.M.] My marketing team recruited quite a few new people just last month. You can leave me out.
John Mallet [4:00 P.M.] I'll keep that in mind. And I think the accounting department should participate. Management feels that they will need more help when our purchase of Stanfield Incorporated moves forward. I'll speak to Susan Edwards about it.
Peter Mercer [4:01 P.M.] I need to supervise product testing in the research and development department for the next few months. Can I send someone in my place?
John Mallet [4:03 P.M.] Of course. Who do you choose, Peter?
Peter Mercer [4:05 P.M.] Amy Lintan. She doesn't have a lot of experience, but she's quite knowledgeable about our department's needs.
John Mallet [4:08 P.M.] That's fine. Perhaps someone who has been employed for a shorter time can provide a valuable perspective on what it is like to join our company.

Tea Tree Eco-Resorts Set to Open in Mexico by Year's End
By Consuela Hidalgo

International hotel chain Tea Tree Eco-Resorts is in the final stages of building a 22-acre resort on Mexico's Mayan Riviera. The first visitors are expected to arrive by December 21. Like other Tea Tree Eco-Resorts in the Philippines, and Greece, the new hotel will be as eco-friendly as possible. "We have solar panels generating electricity and heating the water, for instance. Furthermore, none of the local farmers from whom we source our ingredients for regional specialties, such as pork wrapped in banana leaves and citrus-marinated chicken soup, use any chemical pesticides at all," said general manager Jose Perez. The plan is for the facilities to be built around naturally growing trees and plant life, with structures blending in with the jungle. Further details can be found at www.teatreeecoresorts.com/mexico.

Fall festival Ends in Disaster.

Winnitoba: Applause turned to upset last Friday when the Winnitoba Symphony held their annual Fall Festival Performance at the Winnitoba Opera House. The 3-day long Fall Festival came to an end with a featured concert, which was attended by just over 300 people. The concert ended with a montage of traditional mid-western music for which the symphony was accompanied by the Winnitoba Men's Choir. Although the choir is currently touring Canada to promote their new CD, they were glad to work with the symphony. The audience did not seem to appreciate the performance, which featured nationally recognized soloist, Donald Pericelli along with violinist, Mark Whitten. Accounts claim that audience members were yelling at the musicians and leaving the Opera House after requesting a refund. To add to the general unhappiness of the audience, an unexpected staging malfunction made the evening even worse. One attendee reported seeing the stage curtain hanging quite loosely throughout the performance. As the symphony finished their traditional music piece, someone on the side of the stage, tripped over the dangling material bringing the entire curtain onto the stage. Several players had their instruments knocked out of their hands and the concert had to end abruptly. Donald Pericelli was injured when a hook holding the curtain up hit him in the head. He is currently recovering at Winnitoba Memorial Hospital.

Editor
Winnitoba Times
Local Newsdesk,
Winnitoba

Dear Sir,

I am a cellist with the Winnitoba symphony. I was performing with the orchestra at the end of last week's Fall Festival. As a participant in the event, I would like to complain that your coverage of the event was quite unfair. To begin with, our audience seemed to thoroughly enjoy the complete performance, including the traditional music montage at the end of the show. At no time do I recall any audience members yelling towards the stage. I do not know about people requesting refunds, but if there were, I'm sure our performance was not the reason. As for the incident concerning the stage curtain, it did fall but not until the very end of the set and it did not affect the performance in any way. The curtain simply fell to the side of the stage. Unfortunately, the Winnitoba Times has printed quite negative articles about the Winnitoba Symphony in the past. I would like to request that this not become a habit. Please use the correct facts and print a retraction in next week's addition.
Thank you,

Karen Winter
Winnitoba Symphony, Cellist
