Sports Wire

Rome, Italy
A recent report from the European Car Racing Association shows that many professional race car drivers suffer from chronic neck pain due to frequent quick acceleration and sudden braking during competitions. Drivers frequently accelerate their cars from 30km/h to 200 km/h in just seconds. The occupation also increases risk of spinal stress.

James Waters, professional driver since 1989 comments that he has experienced chronic neck pain for many years. The only remedy seems to be frequent massages and exercises designed to strengthen the neck muscles. Manufacturers of car restraint systems are also trying to design better safety belts to keep the neck more stable during acceleration and braking, a change we may not see in this sport for several years.

17. What can help lessen the stress related to car racing?
18. When may new designs in safety belts appear?

Around Nashville – Business Spotlight

July 19

This week’s business spotlight is on Bell Laundro and its owner, Ms. Monica Bell. For those who don’t know, Bell Laundro is a one-stop place that is a combination of a launderette, a café, and a bookstore and is based on Jackson Street. This new type of self-service laundry is one of the most successful independent businesses in Nashville today. —[1]—.

At first, Bell Laundro was not as successful as it currently is. —[2]—. However, Ms. Bell was not willing to give up on her business.

—[3]—. After months of planning, she renovated a part of her laundry into a café-like lounge. —[4]—. In this waiting area, customers can enjoy a cup of coffee and read books while their clothes are being washed and dried.

The customers at Bell Laundro highly value the convenience and high-quality service Bell Laundro provides. Many residents in the area are students at Welch College, who need to do the laundry and buy books for their classes; they know Bell Laundro is perfect to take care of both tasks at the same time.

Ms. Bell was asked by many local colleges to provide tips and advice for students who plan on opening a new business. As a young entrepreneur herself, she seems very excited to lead her class, entitled “Difficulty into Opportunity.”

Starting Up
A Foreword by Michael Lawman

Starting Up is Anne Schubert's first nonfiction publication, tracing the events in her life that led her to become a successful businessperson. Schubert reminds us through her compelling life story that creating a start-up company is not something that one can do without planning. -[1-. Sufficient time and hard work are both necessary to make one's own business profitable, and the process of how to do that is outlined in detail throughout this book.

Schubert discusses how even from a young age she had always thought herself something of an inventor. Trying to come up with original products that others would find useful in their daily lives gave her inspiration. -[2]-. She also had to overcome the multiple challenges that go along with promoting a new product and ultimately landed contracts to supply Venus Footwear and Constant Sports Equipment.

And it didn't take Schubert long to open a start-up company in Seattle called Swift World, which eventually led to her becoming CEO of Swift Enterprises International. Now with over 280 shoe stores across six different countries, we learn in the book how Schubert came from nearly nothing and developed Swift Enterprises into one of the nation's most lucrative retailers. -[3]-.

Not only is Starting Up incredibly insightful and educational for entrepreneurs, but it is an entertaining read with lots of personal stories about the highly competitive world of product development and retail. I've been fortunate enough to be Schubert's professional peer for many years and have benefitted a lot from her insight and intuition. -[4]-. Now, with Starting Up, you too can have a look inside Schubert's world of start-up success.

35. What is stated about Starting Up?
36. What is mentioned about Swift World?
37. What is suggested about Ms. Schubert?

Sylvie Depardieu,
Small Business Association of Windover,
P.O.Box 7465,
Windover, VT

Dave Mitchell
Manager, Sunrise health Foods
154 Beecham Avenue, Unit 3A
Windover, VT

Dear Mr. Mitchell,
As a long-time member of the Small Business Association, I'm sure you're as upset as the rest of us about the recent hydro rate increase of 29 percent which took effect in October. The difference in our monthly electricity bills is considerable, and for small businesses such as ours that are struggling to make ends meet, I'm sure I don't need to tell you what the increase could mean in the long term.
I wanted to let you know that, as President of the Small Business Association of Windover, I have taken the initiative to contact the State Corporation Commission on behalf of the Association to voice the concerns of small business owners in the area and to register our opposition to this rate increase.
In doing so, I was informed that final approval for this increase has not yet been given to Vermont Hydro by the Commission. Commissioners will decide in the near future whether to approve all, some, or none of the requested 29 percent increase. If the full 29 percent increase is not approved, customers will receive a refund for any overcharges (so save your monthly statements).
This pending decision gives us an opportunity to prevent the increase. That is why I am writing to all of the members of the Association to ask for your support. As customers of Vermont Hydro, we can all contact the Commission and register our opposition to this rate increase. Now, it is your turn to be proactive. Call to register your opposition and pass the word along to businesses in other areas served by Vermont Hydro; even your friends and family could call - every little bit helps.
You can call the State Corporation Commission at (800)553-7845 between 8:15 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will be directed to leave your name, address, telephone number and a statement of opposition. The call takes only 2 to 3 minutes. Every call is tabulated and will hopefully make a difference in the final decision made by the commissioners.

Jolene Gibson [4:46] I agree.We need to focus on recruiting talented people who already have experience. We've participated in job fairs in the past, but the problem is that most people at those sorts of events are recent graduates.
Andrew Walker [4:47] To attract potential candidates, we need to get the word out that we're hiring and offer a competitive compensation package. Does anyone have any ideas?
Luke Garnier [4:49] Well, I suppose we could actively browse profiles on employment Web sites and directly contact people who meet all our criteria.
Alice Page [4:50] I like the idea of reaching out to specific candidates who we would want to work for us. There's just one thing. I think corresponding back and forth with each of them could take a lot of time.
Andrew Walker [4:51] What do you propose then?
Alice Page [4:52] We can hold an open house either here at headquarters or at the Pendleton branch and only invite people were interested in hiring. They can get a chance to see our offices, meet the staff, and learn about some of the projects we're working on.
Jolene Gibson [4:54] That sounds like a really good idea. It would help with the screening process, too. Those who respond to our invitation and come will show us that they’re genuinely interested.
Andrew Walker [4:55] I like it, too. Alice and Luke, I'd like you to start making a list of names. We'll work on organizing an open house once that's done.

BOTWELL DEPARTMENT STORE

I'm very grateful to everyone for helping to make the first week of our duty-free store a success. Overall, I am pleased with your efforts and with how well the store ran. However, there are a few important things to take note of.

First, I received a number of complaints about our voucher program. Please recall that it is our policy to give vouchers to customers who make purchases totaling $500 or more. These vouchers allow them to take advantage of discounts on our partner establishments' Web sites. Please remember to give one to every eligible customer.

Second, if a member of our frequent shopper program has lost his or her card, we cannot offer the reduced price. However, shoppers may keep their receipts and get reimbursed for the difference once the card has been located or replaced.

Thank you for your attention to these matters, and keep up the good work.

TrueBlue Mart Offers Rides to Local Customers

Customers of Kenneth County's most popular big-box store, TrueBlue Mart, will no longer have to worry about how they'll get their shopping done thanks to a new shuttle service. Concerned that a lack of affordable transit services has prevented certain segments of the population from shopping at TrueBlue Mart, store management felt it was appropriate to provide a free shuttle that will make stops at various locations throughout the community. The minibus will leave from Edgewood Avenue Apartments at 8:30 A.M. from Monday to Friday, making four trips a day. On Saturdays, the minibus makes just three trips, leaving from the same location at 10:00 A.M. and skipping over the second stop. The shuttle will not operate on Sundays. Routes and schedules were determined using client feedback and are posted on the store's Web site at www.truebluemart.com.

In-Store Experience Online Experience Shuttle Bus Experience

Thank you for starting the shuttle service program. I am able to run my errands more often now. However, I was wondering if you'd consider sticking to the same pickup locations daily. I live at the Helmhurst Retirement Community, which is close to the second stop, Glengarry University. On weekends, however, I'm forced to walk a little further to the third one. The walk is fine for me, but there are several other residents at Helmhurst who find it difficult because of mobility issues. At other times, the weather presents a hindrance.
I would also suggest that the minibus run more frequently than every two hours. Generally, I don't need more than two hours to perform my errands, so I often find myself sitting around waiting for the bus. If you take into account the travel time, that is nearly three hours out of a person's day just to shop at one store.

Clary Closets
18 North Main Street
Chester, VT

Dear Ms. Clary,

I am writing to dispute the charges on the invoice I recently received from your company. The invoice contained several mistakes. First I was told that I would not be charged an initial consultation fee if I decided to use your services. Since I did go ahead and hire you to organize my closets I should not have to pay this fee. Second the final charge for organizing my four closets was $250 higher than the original estimate. I think this is too much and that I should be charged no more than the original estimate. Finally, I was charged for supplies that you ordered without my authorization. I could have obtained these same supplies myself at a lower price. Since I did not authorize this charge I think I should pay a lower price for the supplies.

I chose Clary Closets to organize my closets because several of my friends and business associates have been satisfied customers of yours. However I find it difficult to believe that an organizing business can be so inefficient when it comes to invoices. Please rectify these mistakes and send me a corrected invoice promptly.

Sincerely,

Millicent Pensky
