Governor Peter Shumlin today announced that a new manufacturing company will be locating in Manchester and will initially employ just over 100 people. The company, WCW, Inc, is a family-owned manufacturer of premier bedding used in the medical and hospitality sectors, with plans to expand to retail customers.WCW’s decision to relocate to Manchester from its Hoosick Falls, NY, facilities was based on a combination of incentives, location and support from the governor’s office and Vermont economic development officials. It was approved for more than half-a-million dollars in state incentives.”Vermont did an excellent job of presenting a competitive incentive package and providing assistance to us from the Shumlin administration – including the governor himself ‘ as well as from the Bennington County Industrial Corporation and local representatives,” said WCW chairman John Wilkinson. “My family and I very much look forward to our future in Vermont.” “This is a great day for Bennington County. I am delighted that WCW selected Vermont as its new home,” said Governor Shumlin. “Creating jobs has been a priority of mine, and today’s announcement is further proof that Vermont is a great place to do business.” “It has been a pleasure working with John Wilkinson and his family over the last several months,” said Peter Odierna, Executive Director of Bennington County Industrial Corporation. “We look forward to this dynamic addition to our local economy.” Although there are still details to be worked out, WCW will purchase the former Moore-Wallace building in Manchester and begin the transition from Hoosick Falls immediately. The company received initial approval of $522,484 from the Vermont Employment Growth Incentive Program and will submit a final application later this year. Source: Governor’s office. 8.16.2011
Reebok-CCM Hockey US, Inc (formerly known as Maska US, Inc) and Reebok-CCM Hockey, Inc, have settled a claim by the Vermont Attorney General that they failed to conduct required groundwater testing in 2008 at a property they own in Bradford. They will pay $40,000 to resolve the matter.The Reebok-CCM companies were required under a 1996 agreement with the Attorney General to conduct quarterly groundwater testing at a property in Bradford that was formerly used to manufacture hockey equipment. The manufacturing process involved perchloroethylene, commonly known as ‘perc’ and regulated as a hazardous waste under Vermont law. While Maska owned the site, perc was released there, and when Reebok purchased Maska it succeeded to Maska’s obligations to monitor the groundwater at the Bradford site for perc.‘The owners of property where hazardous materials have been released must comply with their ongoing monitoring obligations to protect public health and the environment,’ said Attorney General William H. Sorrell.The Pleadings By Agreement and Stipulation for Entry of Consent Order were filed with the Superior Court in Washington County in early August 2011. Judge Geoffrey W. Crawford approved the settlement by entering a Consent Order on August 15, 2011. August 19, 2011 Vermont Attorney General read more
Located in south central Colorado in the stunning San Luis Valley, the city of Alamosa might not seem like much of an outdoor destination. There are strip malls and restaurant chains, railroads and remnants of an industrialized era, sure, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find authentic Mexican eats, a burgeoning outdoor scene, and of course, more trails than you can hope to see in a weekend.Here are some of the must-dos while in the Alamosa area! Play: Any Google search of “Alamosa” will lead you straight to the jewel of this region: the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve. Just a short drive from downtown Alamosa, the Dunes are an absolute treasure to behold and an otherwise anomaly in this mountainous state. Set against the backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, here you will find the tallest dunes in North America, which spread for more than 30 square miles and fold into the recesses of grasslands, wetlands, conifer and aspen forests, alpine lakes, and even tundra. Though the long line of cars at the entrance and the popularity among drive-by tourists may at first be a deterrent for our adventurous followers, this unique destination is a must for anyone with a bucket list. Grab a sled or board from Kristi Mountain Sports for $18/day to get the most out of your visit to the dunes. We recommend hitting the dunes early, as late afternoon storms and hot temperatures can make the exposed sands hot and volatile.Stay: Camping in the dunes is free, though a backcountry permit is required and permits are limited to six people per party. Primitive tent sites at Piñon Flats Campground are available at $20 per night, but if you want a shower at the end of your sand-filled day, you may want to opt for the Alamosa KOA, where you can have access to WiFi, showers, even a pool, for $30 per night for non-electric tent sites.Eat: Thanks to the crew at Kristi Mountain Sports, we discovered Mi Taquito, a family owned Mexican restaurant located in downtown Alamosa. Grab one of their special breakfast burritos on your way to the dunes for just $3 (trust us, the burrito is substantial and vegetarian friendly, not to mention dank). Need a place to post up and get your WiFi and caffeine fix? Check out The ROAST, a cozy cafe with a bar to boot. Like what we’re wearing in the images above?

The country is one of the world’s most prominent wine producers. President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner invites Argentines to rethink their country during the bicentennial. “The bicentennial will offer us a great opportunity to rethink our country, not looking back but looking forward, yet with a vision of those things we could have done better or where we went wrong so that we do not make the same mistakes again,” Fernández said during the official presentation of the bicentennial program in December 2009. The country is preparing to show the world the special things Argentines have to offer: LITERATURE: It has a rich history of worldclass literature. Argentine Jorge Luis Borges is one of the 20th century’s most acclaimed writers. MUSIC: Tango is the traditional music. FILM: The world’s first animated feature films were made and released in Argentina in 1917. By Dialogo January 01, 2010 read more

Legendary goalkeeper Iker Casillas is returning to Real Madrid as an advisor to club president Florentino Perez. It follows a week in which both Porto and Madrid won their respective league titles, with Casillas expected to officially announce his retirement from football at the end of the campaign. The goalkeeper left Madrid in the summer of 2015 and as Marca highlight, that was following an acrimonious fallout with Perez whereby he was allowed to leave the Spanish giants ‘through the back door’. However, that now appears to be water under the bridge with Casillas – the player with the second most games in the club’s history (725) – now due to return to the Spanish capital. Last month, Casillas announced he was withdrawing from the Spanish FA presidential elections having been due to stand against the current incumbent Luis Rubiales.
