    Firefighters and emergency workers usually are the first thanked after devastating wildfires or crises, but countless other people and groups often go unnoticed.

  • Detroit bankruptcy is omen for other cities

    By Jim Rohrer
    I grew up in Ohio where the rivalry with Michigan is taught as a family value. Further, I lived in Michigan, and I witnessed firsthand the difficulty of running a business successfully because the prevailing union mentality focuses on “what’s in it for me vs. how can I help my company succeed.”
