Adams County Ohio Valley Schools expects to save $259,000 annually through partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA

Rodney Wallace

TIPP CITY, Ohio, Oct. 30, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Adams County Ohio Valley School District will soon harvest most of its electricity from the sun as part of an energy conservation project it has undertaken with Energy Optimizers, USA. The planned photovoltaic solar array, in combination with several other energy saving measures, is expected to net the school district $259,330 annually in utility savings.

Improvements will be made to all seven of the district’s buildings, including the Ohio Valley Career Technology Center.

In partnership with Energy Optimizers, USA, the district will:
* Install a 535 kW solar photovoltaic array, which is expected to provide the majority of the district’s electricity;
* Overhaul the CTC’s boiler plant with new, energy efficient equipment;
* Upgrade the CTC’s fuel supply from oil to cleaner-burning propane;
* Replace interior lighting with more efficient lamps and remove unneeded lamps to cut waste;
* Replace exterior lighting with LED technology to improve energy efficiency while enhancing building safety, appearance and security;
* Install occupancy sensors to reduce wasted electricity;
* Install advanced energy management controls to provide real-time, web-based monitoring and management of the district’s HVAC systems;
* Install energy-saving features to the kitchen exhaust fans and coolers.

The project is expected to begin in the near future and be wrapped up by late Spring 2015. Projected energy savings are guaranteed for three years, and the payback for the upgrades is just under 12 years. Funding is provided through the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s House Bill 264 program, enabling the district to make these cost-cutting improvements at no expense to taxpayers.

“Solar power will allow us to save on utility costs by generating our own electricity,” said Superintendent Rodney Wallace. “Every dollar that we save on our utility bills is a dollar that can be spent on things more directly related to education. Ultimately, this benefits our greatest resource: our students.”

Fully owned by the school, the solar array could do double duty by generating revenue if the school opts to sell solar renewable energy credits. Upgrading the fuel supply from oil to propane will save money by cutting down on long-term maintenance and cleaning costs.

“Projects like these help schools cut their utility costs, often by a significant amount,” said Bob Hausmann, Director of Operations for Energy Optimizers, USA. “But there’s more to it than just that. Energy conservation projects often have a multiplier effect that comes from simply using more reliable and efficient equipment. Ohio Valley/Adams County CTC will also save money by reducing long-term maintenance and replacement costs, and may even be able to generate new revenue through the solar array.”

The partnership also includes the resources to launch a Green Team, an energy education effort that Energy Optimizers, USA promotes in all of its school-related energy conservation projects. In addition to funding the team for two years, Energy Optimizers, USA, will provide Ohio Energy Project academic materials that are aligned to Ohio’s academic content standards. Green Team members will take part in STEM-related activities that are focused on energy conservation, while encouraging their peers to become more environmentally conscious.

About Energy Optimizers, USA:

Energy Optimizers, USA works with Ohio school districts and government agencies to implement energy savings opportunities to reduce operational costs, including lighting retrofits, renewable energy projects (wind and solar), HVAC retrofit projects, building automation retrofits and energy education programs.

The Filharmonic Swings By Twelve3south Studio

The Filharmonic

TIPP CITY, Ohio, April 9, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The doors at twelve3south Studio are always open to artists who are looking to make some music, even if they stop in at a moment’s notice. The Tipp City, Ohio music studio, which is owned by producer and performer Donnie Reis, hosted The Filharmonic, of NBC’s “The Sing Off” Season 4 earlier this month when the up-and-coming a cappella group stopped in to lay down a few tracks for an upcoming EP.

The young Filipino-Americans from Southern California just happened to swing by a few hours before Reis left to play at South by Southwest with singer-songwriter Caroline Glaser.

“We were getting ready to go to Austin, Texas later that day when I got a call from Sound Engineer Bryan Farina, who wanted to bring the guys up to record a few tracks,” said Reis. “He asked if we had the time, and I said, ‘We’ve always got time for artists.’”

The Filharmonic were currently in the middle of the 31-city “The Sing-Off Tour” that included other Season 4 groups “Home Free” and “VoicePlay.” The tour had stopped in southern Ohio when the six Los Angelinos decided to pay twelve3south a visit.

“We had an off day in Cincinnati and twelve3south was only an hour away,” said Farina. “I knew Donnie was a top-notch dude, and I knew he would take care of business for these guys.”

Farina and Reis spent time touring together last year with Atlantic Records’ a cappella sensation “Straight No Chaser” (SNC). Farina was the front-of-the-house engineer for SNC, while Reis and Glaser were their opening act.

While at the studio, The Filharmonic recorded three tracks for their upcoming EP.

“We loved having the guys up at the studio,” said Reis. “They’re super-talented and a lot of fun to have around. I’m happy they took the time come visit us… even if it was at the very last minute!”

Twelve3south is one of the professional music industry’s newest premier recording studios, owned and operated by producer, composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Donnie Reis. Check out the website at http://www.twelve3south.com/ for more info.

Greeneview Local School District to Save $42,598 Annually by Implementing Energy Conservation Project

Greeneview Local Schools TIPP CITY, Ohio, March 26, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Isaac Seevers, Superintendent of Greeneview Local Schools, is pleased to announce that the District has implemented an energy conservation project, which is being executed by Energy Optimizers, USA, to improve four existing school buildings, reduce overall energy usage, and save taxpayer dollars.

“As a district, we rank in the lowest 20 percent in Ohio for expenditures per pupil. We are good stewards of taxpayer dollars, achieving excellent educational results while spending within our means. This project offers us an opportunity to gain energy savings to lower our monthly expenses, perform much needed facility improvements, and improve the learning environment for our students,” says Seevers.

The District is utilizing a funding mechanism through the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s House Bill 264 program so that the District does not have to ask for any taxpayer dollars. Though the total cost of this project is $495,180, the Greeneview Local School District will save $42,598 in annual energy and operations costs.

Energy Optimizers, USA identified areas where enhancements should be made to the High School, the Middle School, Elementary School, and Board offices. Interior and exterior lighting renovations will significantly reduce electrical consumption across the district. As Greeneview Middle School is a new facility, only high bay metal halide fixtures in the gym and HID exterior lighting were replaced with more energy-efficient lighting.

The control systems in all buildings will be integrated into one web-based system to allow the district to monitor and analyze the facilities’ energy usage. Programming measures, including tying the hot water circulation pump scheduling into the controls system, will reduce energy usage and improve comfort levels in the buildings.

“It is always encouraging when the school district we are working with is as excited as we are to implement an energy conservation project,” notes Bob Hausmann, Operations Manager for Energy Optimizers, USA. “Greeneview Local Schools’ administration and School Board members are not only making positive changes to conserve both energy and taxpayer resources, they are passionate about creating better, more efficient facilities for their students and teachers. We look forward to helping them meet their fiscal goals and assisting them in championing a great idea – the idea that a ‘greener,’ more sustainable means of energy use is not only responsible and practical, it is preferable.”

Plant a Tree in Ireland with Ever Irish Gifts

Plant Ireland Tree CLEVELAND, Ohio, Feb. 24, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Ever Irish Gifts, an e-commerce site, today announced a distinctive way to celebrate a loved one’s birthday, anniversary or marriage or to memorialize someone’s life – plant a tree in Ireland in their honor or memory.

“Planting a tree in Ireland is more than a gift,” says Douglas Bell, president and co-founder, Ever Irish Gifts. “It contributes to a way of life. Living trees have played a central role in the practical and daily spiritual lives of the Irish people for hundreds of years. Trees served as landmarks and icons of family and clan identity, and their importance can be measured by the great number of tree-based place names in Ireland. Of the 16,000 towns in Ireland, 13,000 are named after trees.”

Trees symbolize strength and life and planting a tree in Ireland is a unique Irish gift to be treasured forever. The tree is planted by the Lisnavagh Timber Project in partnership with Ever Irish Gifts’ Roots in Ireland and will be located in County Carlow on the Lisnavagh Estate in Rathvilly.

And, because sustainability and regeneration of the Irish woodlands is of critical importance, this tree, planted as a young sapling, will contribute to maintaining and repopulating the country’s forestry, helping to keep Ireland green and providing satisfaction for future generations in years to come.

“There are no other companies out there that offer such an extraordinary Irish gift,” Bell says. “We are thrilled to add this to our exclusive selection of Irish gifts, and it’s just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, too.”

Other Irish gift offerings include the ability to buy a piece of land in Ireland in someone’s name.

Specific product details about planting a tree in Ireland can be found here: http://everirishgifts.com/info/Plant_Ireland.aspx .

Belpre City Schools to Save $56,185 Annually by Implementing Energy Conservation Project

Tony Dunn and Dion Vance TIPP CITY, Ohio, Jan. 23, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Tony Dunn, Superintendent of Belpre City Schools, is pleased to announce that the District has implemented an energy conservation project, which is being executed by Energy Optimizers, USA, to improve four existing school buildings, reduce over-all energy usage, and save taxpayer dollars.

“In an age of declining revenue and resources, the ability to reduce our operational expenditures through greater energy efficiency is tremendously important for the fiscal health of the school district. Energy Optimizers, USA has enabled us to achieve energy savings, which will allow the District to focus on its mission of ensuring that students are college and career ready and able to compete for any job they desire,” says Dunn.

The District is utilizing a funding mechanism through the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s House Bill 264 program so that the District does not have to ask for any taxpayer dollars. Though the total cost of this project exceeds $550,000, the Belpre City School District will save $56,185 annual energy and operations costs.

Energy Optimizers, USA identified areas where enhancements should be made to the High School, Elementary School, the Lawton Building, and the Stone Administration Building. Three of the four buildings had outdated and barely functioning heating systems that were originally coal-fired units, which were later converted to gas-fired and were very inefficient. It was impossible to buy replacement parts when the system broke down. The HVAC system at Belpre High School was replaced by Steers Heating and Cooling, Inc. and the District’s Maintenance team. HVAC systems in the other buildings were reworked to ensure proper operation and efficiency.

Energy Optimizers, USA also implemented interior and exterior lighting renovations to significantly reduce electrical consumption across the district. The control systems in the buildings will be integrated into one web-based system to allow the district to monitor and analyze the facilities’ energy usage. Programming measures will reduce energy usage and improve comfort levels in the buildings.

Other project energy conservation measures include installation of variable frequency drives on air handlers in three of the buildings and replacement of three exterior doors at Belpre High School with new, tightly sealed doors. There will be a 15-year energy savings verification program implemented by a third party as required by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.

“This project will improve the environment for the student body and the faculty while producing significant energy savings,” notes Greg Smith, President of Energy Optimizers, USA. “We look forward to helping Belpre City Schools meet their fiscal goals and assisting them in championing a great idea – the idea that a ‘greener,’ more sustainable means of energy use is not only responsible and practical, it is preferable.”

Right at Home Dayton honors caregivers during National Caregivers Appreciation Month

Michael Manes DAYTON, Ohio, Nov. 25, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — November is National Caregivers Appreciation Month; and Right at Home Dayton In-Home Care and Assistance is making sure their experienced and well-trained caregivers are recognized for their dedication and compassion. National Caregiver Appreciation Month aims to acknowledge those who dedicate their time to caring for others.

Michael Manes, Right at Home Dayton franchise owner, has nominated three of his experienced and dedicated caregivers for the Right at Home National Family Caregiver Award.

“Our organization could not have become a leader in this industry if not for the excellent service that our amazing staff has delivered. These nominations are our way of showing our employees that we value and appreciate the important work they do every day,” says Manes.

Care giving is demanding and can lead to fatigue. Caregiver burnout is a very real condition and affects nurses and caregivers in all healthcare and caring environments. Caregiver Burnout, also known as Compassion Fatigue, or secondary traumatic stress (STS), is characterized by a gradual lessening of compassion over time. It is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that may lead to a change in attitude from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. Caregivers that are not receiving the help they need, or take on the responsibility of doing more than they are able to may experience burnout.

Caregivers may become overwhelmed with the physical, emotional, and financial toll that caring for a loved one at home carries. Those who are feeling rundown may experience the physical symptoms of fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression. They may also experience feelings of guilt if they spend time on themselves rather than on their ill or elderly loved ones. The hectic demands of the holidays typically compound the stress and feelings of guilt.

Being able to rely on professional, compassionate respite care can ease the burden and stress of caring for a loved one, and bring the joy back to the holidays. Right at Home – Dayton, specializing in eldercare and respite care, has been an excellent resource for professional, quality, and affordable caregivers in the Greater Dayton area since 2005.

Respite care provides planned, short-term breaks for those who are caring for loved ones who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility or nursing home. The purpose of respite care is to relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in order to maintain a healthy care giving relationship. It not only beneficial for the caregiver, but also provides a positive experience for the person receiving care. According to National Respite Coalition, respite care has been shown to reduce the likelihood of neglect and abuse for the patient, sustain the health and well being for the caregiver, and reduces the likelihood of divorce in the family.

It is no coincidence that November is National Caregivers Appreciation Month.

Shawnee Local Schools to Save $117,560 Annually Through Implementing Energy Conservation Project

Shawnee Local Schools TIPP CITY, Ohio, Nov. 6, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Michael Lamb, Superintendent of Shawnee Local Schools, is pleased to announce that the district is implementing an energy conservation project, to be implemented by Energy Optimizers, USA, to improve four existing academic buildings, reduce over-all energy usage, and save taxpayer resources. “In an age of declining revenue and resources, the ability to reduce our operational expenditures through greater energy efficiency is tremendously important for the fiscal health of the school district. Energy Optimizers, USA, and SHP Leading Design have enabled us to save precious dollars that can be redirected into the classrooms for quality instruction for our students,” says Lamb.

Energy Optimizers, USA, along with strategic partner, SHP Leading Design, has identified areas where enhancements should be made, to the local high school in particular, so the buildings can be more purposeful in their use of energy without compromising a comfortable learning environment for teachers and students. The district is utilizing a funding mechanism through the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s House Bill 264 program so that the District does not have to ask for any taxpayer dollars.

Though the total cost of this project exceeds $1.1 million (prior to grants and rebates), the Shawnee Local School system stands to save a staggering $117,560 in annual energy and operations costs. As a result, the District can count on a 9.36 year payback, along with other post-project benefits, including energy management and energy education programming, in addition to increasingly efficient buildings that facilitate a productive and safe academic experience.

Energy Optimizers, USA developed a project for Shawnee Local Schools focused on lighting upgrades, which will significantly reduce electrical consumption across the district, in addition to upgrading existing mechanical equipment and retrofitting boilers. Both Shawnee High School and Middle School, along with Maplewood Intermediate School, Elmwood Primary School and the Bus Garage will all receive top of the line upgrades upon implementation of the energy conservation project including re-lamping and de-lamping fluorescent fixtures, occupancy sensors, exterior fixtures, steam boiler plant retrofits, computer upgrades, and smart controls on kitchen equipment.

“To date, SHP has helped over 35 school districts with energy saving initiatives,” noted Charlie Jahnigen, Vice President of SHP Leading Design. “SHP has worked with Shawnee Local Schools since 2012 to improve their learning environments. Focusing on energy efficiency is a great step to long-term facility management,” added Jahnigen. The breadth of project experience and commitment to a critical mission by Energy Optimizers, USA and SHP will serve this Lima-area school district well.

Additionally, students and teachers can expect to receive funding to implement an energy education program that allows students to take the Shawnee Local School District’s sustainability efforts a step further by creating student groups called “Green Teams.” The students who wish to participate in Green Team programming will participate in engrossing, educational STEM (Science. Technology. Engineering. Math) activities related to energy conservation, while encouraging their peers to become more environmentally conscious.

“It is always encouraging when the school district we are working with is as excited as we are to implement an energy conservation project,” notes Bob Hausmann, Operations Manager for Energy Optimizers, USA. “Shawnee Local Schools’ administration and School Board members are not only pleased to make positive changes in order to conserve both energy and taxpayer resources, they are passionate about creating better, more efficient facilities for their students and teachers. We truly look forward to helping them meet their fiscal goals and assisting them in championing a great idea – the idea that a ‘greener,’ more sustainable means of energy use is not only responsible and practical, it is preferable.”

About Energy Optimizers, USA:

Energy Optimizers, USA works with Ohio school districts and government agencies to implement energy savings opportunities to reduce operational costs, including lighting retrofits, renewable energy projects (wind and solar), HVAC retrofit projects, building automation retrofits and energy education programs.

Historic Tour Homes, Entertainment, Gift Ideas and More at Ohio Hometown Celebration

Christmas in the Village TIPP CITY, Ohio, Sept. 19, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Downtown Tipp City Partnership would like day-trippers to discover a Currier and Ives-style hometown holiday celebration when they visit Tipp City, Ohio on December 7, 2013. This year’s annual Christmas In The Village and Holiday Home Tour boasts six historic tour homes, each with its own decorative accents and each featuring an “over the top” tabletop, created by ASID- and DSID-certified designers.

“The decorating and entertaining ideas alone are worth the trip to Tipp,” said Christmas in the Village Chairman Heather Bailey, whose home will be featured on this year’s tour. “We are excited about all the great additions for 2013. Between unprecedented participation by downtown merchants and the new ‘street flair’ activity on Sixth Street, it will take all day to see, do, eat, and enjoy everything Tipp City has to offer.”

Street Flair features a series of booths that offer everything from hot cider and other holiday treats to demonstrations of traditional blacksmithing to handmade crafts and gift items. In Tipp’s historic (and recently renovated) downtown, merchants will offer discounts and special deals to home tour ticket holders. And those savings opportunities will extend beyond the Dec. 7 tour date, so be sure to hold on to your ticket and return to Tipp City later in December and during the month of January.

The Historical Society will present a history of this year’s tour streets, Broadway and Sixth, and the library will feature entertainment throughout the tour day. Miami County Master Gardeners will landscape the featured homes and Plein Air artists will be painting on the streets and in the tour houses.

Paintings created during the tour day will be available for purchase at day’s end. Also, downtown at Studio 14, a “homecoming” art show will spotlight the work of local artists.

At the will-call location (in the Hotel Gallery at the corner of Second and Main Streets), refreshments will be available, along with other displays. Visitors who purchase their tickets on-line must visit will-call in order to exchange their printed receipt for a ticket.

A classic trolley car will help move guests between the downtown and the tour area. Along the way, visitors may choose to stop at the Crossroads Church community center which will feature the Wright State University men’s chorale, an antique clock display, and a variety of pieces created by a local master carpenter.

But the centerpiece of the day will be the historic homes and their unique and inspiring seasonal decorations.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.DowntownTippCity.org/ or at https://www.facebook.com/ChristmasInTheVillage .

Advance tickets are also available at Coldwater Cafe, Harrison’s Restaurant, Sugden Furniture, Greenfire Bistro, and Hock’s Pharmacy. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the day of the event. A limited number of preview night tickets will be sold at $50 each. Preview night will feature a special showing of the homes as well as refreshments for visitors. Only 50 preview night tickets will be sold.

The annual celebration is organized by a dedicated cadre of volunteers, with proceeds benefitting programs of the Downtown Tipp City Partnership and Tipp Monroe Community Services. For more information about the celebration, please visit: www.DowntownTippCity.org or www.TippChristmas.org or call 937-667-0883.

Deer Park Schools Updating Buildings to Save in Annual Utility Expense

energy optimizers, usaTIPP CITY, Ohio, June 27, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Jeff Langdon, Superintendent of Deer Park Community City Schools, announced that the district is implementing an energy conservation project to reduce energy usage, improve the facilities, and save taxpayer dollars. “We are very fortunate to be able to increase the efficiency of our school buildings and at the same time save our taxpayers significant tax dollars. We look forward to the completion of the HB 264 Project so that we can showcase the results to our school community,” stated Jeff Landon, Superintendent of Deer Park Community City Schools. The district selected Energy Optimizers, USA, to develop complete turn-key energy conservation solutions for four district buildings.

To implement this project without asking for any taxpayer money, the district is utilizing a funding mechanism through the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s House Bill 264 program.

Energy Savings for Deer Park Community City Schools
With efficiency, sustainability, and cost savings in mind, Energy Optimizers, USA, along with strategic partner, SHP Leading Design, has designed the Deer Park Community City Schools project to include significant energy conservation measures that will result in a reduction of at least $45,352 in annual energy savings. The implementation of this project will ensure that both Holmes Primary Schools and the Deer Park Junior/Senior High School will experience building upgrades and improved utility efficiencies.

“To date, SHP has helped over 30 school districts with energy saving initiatives,” noted Charlie Jahnigen, Vice President of SHP Leading Design. “Since 2009, SHP has worked with Deer Park Community City Schools to improve their learning environments. Focusing on energy efficiency is a great step to long-term facility management,” added Jahnigen. The breadth of project experience and commitment to a critical mission by Energy Optimizers, USA and SHP will serve this Cincinnati-area school district well. The benefits of this partnership are multi-faceted in the sense that not only will the project be implemented in a timely and thorough manner, the mission of both companies is met by executing sustainable, responsible energy conservation projects while alleviating the costs associated with maintaining a comfortable and productive space for learning.

At a cost of $523,352, this project includes interior and exterior lighting updates, kitchen walk-in temperature controls, real-time energy management, and a variable refrigerant flow system in the High School’s computer lab and in Holmes Primary, which is vastly more efficient than the existing window units and will maintain a comfortable, productive environment for both students and faculty. In addition to the two-year energy management program, Energy Optimizers, USA will also provide funds to both the Primary and Junior/Senior High to implement an energy education program, which will be available to interested students.

“We are excited about the implementation of this project,” notes Greg Smith, President of Energy Optimizers, USA. “Through this process Deer Park Community City Schools will not only experience a reduction in energy consumption, resulting in a significant annual savings in utility costs, their facilities will be more efficient and sustainable. We have made a commitment to the educational institutions we serve to create a comfortable, environmentally responsible learning environment where students can flourish, in addition to providing funds to foster energy education.”

Energy Education Program
Energy Optimizers, USA will work with the school district to implement an energy education and training program, tied to the curriculum, for students and staff. Activities will include creating and implementing a district-wide energy conservation handbook incorporating suggested student and staff behaviors and expectations that directly affect energy usage, and having the school district qualify for and become recognized by the Federal Energy Star Energy Efficient Buildings Program.

Vivesan and Vivebloom Products Expand in Local Markets

Vivebloom Produce WashCLEVELAND, Ohio, March 29, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Adherents of the “shop local” movement are becoming more discriminating. Cleveland’s consumers are no exception, and they are driving demand for their local retailers to carry Vivesan™ and Vivebloom™ cleaning products. Waterstone Ventures LLP, the makers of the 100 percent carcinogen-free products, announced today that their cleaners will be sold in over 20 local grocery stores. These all-natural cleaners are available in Whole Foods Market (University Heights), Constantino’s, Heinen’s, and Nature’s Bin stores.

All products are carcinogen-free, odor-free, natural, and 99.9 percent plant-based. The Vivesan line includes a streak-free Glass Cleaner, Laundry Soap for cold water, and a low-suds Carpet Cleaner that can be used in extraction machines. The Global Cleaner – intended for use for everything from toys to dirty pots – removes grease, grime, dirt, and buildup.

“Our customers are very aware of what they consume, and that’s why products like Vivesan cleaners are a good fit for our shoppers. They want products that contain ingredients they recognize,” said Michael Bishara, Grocery Team Leader at Whole Foods Market of University Heights, Ohio. “However, shoppers care about effectiveness, too, and that’s what’s appealing about these cleaners. Now, they don’t have to trade potency for safety,” he added. “The short distance these products travel is a plus, because they’re made right here in Cleveland, and that’s a smaller carbon footprint.”

Other Vivesan™ formulas are available for Marine, Automotive, and Equine Care applications. The Vivebloom™ Produce Wash, a food-safe surfactant, is a liquid spray that removes undesirable residues, wax, pesticides, and dirt from fruits and vegetables. Custom formulations can also be created for retailers’ specific requirements. These proprietary blends are designed to be as effective as traditional cleaners – without toxic chemicals.

All are derived from a proprietary blend of processed extracts of coconut, corn, grains, sugar cane, and tree sap, using ingredients that are produced and grown in the United States. Most Vivesan™ and Vivebloom™ consumer products are sold in quarts, and gallon units for dilution are sold for commercial use. Prices range from between US$8 for 32oz to $35 per super-concentrated gallon.

Online School will Become the #1 Provider for Job Placement Assistance

Job Placement AssistanceCLEVELAND, Ohio, March 22, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — At Lakewood College we understand the importance of our students not only completing their program but then getting out into the real world and putting all their hard work into action. We want to bring to them the people that know how to help them get the career they want.

Several colleges claim that they will help you with career placement. But, what does that really mean? How many college graduates can honestly say they were walked through the do’s and don’ts of interviewing? Who can say they were taught how to utilize key words to locate that job through a search engine? Lastly and most important, who can say they were given the encouragement needed along the way as they were told “No” 100 times? Well at Lakewood College the students will get all of these things and more, as they introduce their new Career Services Department.

First the students get the opportunity to work with the Director of Career Preparation, Brian King. Brian comes to Lakewood College with several years of working at a temp agency. Working with people who are unemployed, maybe through no fault of their own now forced to go out into the scary world of job searching, with no idea where to start. He has spent countless hours looking at resumes, seeing what works and what does not. He has spent time speaking to the employers understanding what they are looking for in their interviews, which in turn allows him to better prep his prospects. So, Brian thoroughly understands the importance of Career Preparation and will bring that knowledge to Lakewood College graduates.

Next, students will be directed to the Career Placement Manager, Denise Raider. Denise comes to Lakewood College with several years of working in a career college. She spent her days as a cheerleader for the students. Most of her students were first time college students, fearful of change and risk, but very much in need of it and just lacking some direction. With the relationships she built, she was able to encourage the students, making them see past the negativity of a bad day and make it to the finish line to success!

According to Brian King, Director of Career Preparation at Lakewood College, “We will work together to understand the needs of our students at Lakewood College. We will be their support system. We will work with them to make them marketable and understand that a bad day or a ‘Not Hiring’ response is just motivation to try again; that something better is waiting.”

Raider adds, “You can truly change your life if you live with a positive outlook. It is better to try and fail then to have never tried at all.”

Combining the new Career Services Department staff to the current Lakewood College staff, the school is confident that they will not only become #1 in career placement assistance, but also the top choice for online education.

Lakewood College provides diploma and degree programs for top careers in business, medical, and legal fields. Every year thousands of active duty members, veterans and military spouses receive a quality, excellent education from Lakewood College with no out of pocket expenses.

To get more information about the education benefits available from Lakewood College, visit http://www.LakewoodCollege.edu/ today. Individuals interested in learning more details about this press release will find contact information below.

Ohio Educator and Veteran to Speak in D.C. for Troops to Teachers

DAYTON, Ohio, Jan. 28, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Eric Combs, Assistant Principal in Fairborn City Schools, will be headed to Washington D.C. this week to participate in the Troops to Teachers: Next Generation Planning Conference.

A retired veteran, teacher and now administrator, Eric was a successful participant of the Troops to Teachers program and will be asked to speak on the benefits of hiring veterans to serve in our nation’s schools.

He will be bringing his unique background as an Adjunct Faculty member at Wright State University and Antioch University Midwest and as a celebrated educator (2006 Ohio Teacher of the Year, Director and Curriculum Developer for the Center of Teacher Effectiveness) to the table with delegates from higher education, the Department of Defense and several private businesses.

They will be deciding on the vision and future of this program that assists veterans in becoming certified teachers in high need areas and subjects. Since 1993, Troops to Teachers has placed over 18,000 veterans in classrooms of which, 75 percent remain in the classroom or in education as counselors or principals after 5 years (46 percent of teachers leave the career field within the first five years; Forbes March 8, 2011).

The main goal of this conference is to explore the possibility of becoming a private-public model to help sustainability in a time when many veterans are expected to be returning to civilian life in the next five to ten years.

Mr. Combs will be speaking on the attributes and experiences veterans bring to education and how the program can help to efficiently and effectively help military members continue to serve in our nations’ classrooms.

Those interested in speaking with Mr. Combs may want to contact him via his website located at http://ericcombs.com/ .

Gregory Industries, Inc. High Security Fence Super C-Post

CANTON, Ohio, Jan. 24, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Gregory Industries, Inc. launches Super C-Post for high security fencing installations. Super C-Posts provides greater strength perpendicular to the fence line with 60,000 pound minimum yield steel and a wall thickness of .130 or .150 inches. Super C-Posts are stronger than their 3-inch OD or 4-inch OD counterparts and have a heavier zinc coating for superior corrosion protection.

The Super C-Post system with the 2-inch cover strap and complete line of fittings was designed specifically for high security installations utilizing welded mesh panels, expanded metal panels and smaller mesh chain link fence fabric.

According to James DeSmith, Gregory Product Manager, “The distinct advantage of Super C-Post is that all surfaces of the post, both inside and outside are galvanized. And when specifications call for PVC coated fence all of those surfaces are PVC coated. Tubular products are coated on the outside only, leaving the inside susceptible to condensation buildup and premature red rust.”

The other big advantage is that Super C-Posts can be driven and self-anchor without the added time and expense of digging holes or setting in concrete. Tests by state D.O.T. agencies show that a Super C-Post driven 3 feet into the ground hold as well or better than round posts set in concrete.

Super C-Posts from Gregory are coated with 4 ounces of zinc per square foot in accordance with ASTM-F1043 Type A. This is the heaviest galvanized coating available in the fence market. Its unique design with the small open channel on the back of the post alleviates condensation buildup that leads to premature red rust, an inherent characteristic of tubular products.

Gregory Industries, Inc. is a leader in proprietary manufactured products, continuous galvanized coatings and metal working services for the commercial construction industry and the highway safety products industry. For more information, please visit: http://www.gregorycorp.com/ or call 1-866-462-7686.

The NAACP and Minority Media Community Collaborative are OUTRAGED at Time Warner Cable in Columbus!

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 18, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — A major press conference held November 28, 2012 revealed that the Columbus NAACP and the Minority Media Community Collaborative (MMCC) are outraged at Time Warner Cable’s continuous refusal to provide local minority programming. Evidence of this blatant disregard is Time Warner Cable’s refusal to carry Bounce 23 TV and Azteca Columbus TV, two broadcasters dedicated to serving the African American and Hispanic populations in Columbus, Ohio.

Reverend Joel King, cousin of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Time Warner Cable has hundreds of cable channels available and yet has refused to sign an agreement to carry local minority broadcasters. And to add insult to injury Time Warner Cable has snubbed our repeated requests for a meeting to discuss these minority community concerns.”

Noel Williams President of the Columbus NAACP states, “Time Warner Cable says that they believe in the power of community and value diversity in hiring, but with no space allocated to local minority channels, they do not apply these beliefs to their programming.”

The 2010 U.S. Census reports that nearly 40 percent of Columbus’ population is minority (28 percent African American, 6 percent Hispanic and 5 percent other) and they spend approximately $72 million dollars per year in cable service fees. Yet they are completely denied local minority programming. Time Warner Cable, which controls 60 percent of the Columbus cable market, recently merged with Insight Communications (30 percent of the market) and now has a virtual monopoly with 90 percent of the television cable services in Columbus, Ohio.

The Columbus NAACP and the MMCC says, “Time Warner’s mission statement says they are committed to serving the community. Yet they have no local minority programming channels available and have refused to meet with the NAACP and the MMCC! This kind of blatant disregard displayed by Time Warner Cable has the uncanny feeling of 1954 in the year 2013.”
