Discussing Local Business
Thank you Andrew Kyres, Vice President of First Financial Bank, for putting together a wonderful morning business hour. It was a great opportunity to network with our peers and learn about tools and resources that can help us build and grow our business! The featured speaker was District 1 U.S. Congressman Peter J. Visclosky. He talked about the state of local business, the economy and current issues before the United States Congress. Congressman Visclosky is an advocate for major economic development projects in Northwest Indiana. He talked extensively about the recapitalization of the South Shore Rail line, the Gary/Chicago International Airport and the Marquette Plan (his lakeshore investment strategy). It was great to hear in all the discussions with some great audience questions.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The annual Chicago river dyeing (last Saturday) was an experience. The dyeing of the river has been a tradition for many generations and lots of folks were dressed in green to see the action live. Created with a concoction by the Plumbers Local Union 130.
The Irish population was growing steadily in Chicago by the mid-1800s, but it wasn’t until the next century that St. Patrick’s Day took hold of the city every March. The city’s first parade was held in 1956, five years before the river started flowing green. We took a look at just how that tradition got started.

The reason your concrete is ugly (or soon will be) is because you haven’t had it sealed in years & probably since it was installed…right? Go ahead, pour some water on it – what do you see? If your concrete darkens-up and absorbs water like a “big hard sponge” then it is UNSEALED & open for damage.
You’re just asking for trouble if you’re letting water & everything else soak right down into your concrete. Did you know that water expands up to 9% when it freezes? That’s why it will pit, pop, crack & flake off!
Besides the obvious damage caused by salt & ice melting chemicals, there are plenty of other bad things that are damaging it right now (lawn fertilizer, oil, gas, anti-freeze, UV rays, rain containing high amounts of nitric & sulfuric acids . . . & so on). It’s going to keep ROTTING FROM THE INSIDE OUT unless you do something to protect it – CAN YOU REALLY AFFORD AN EXPENSIVE TEAR-OUT & REPLACEMENT?
