Thanks from Sonny’s executive chef

One year ago the Catacombs closed its doors. I just wanted to say thanks to all who had a big part in making the new Sonny Lubick Steakhouse come about. From planning to demolition to construction to putting all of our systems in place, you are the people who helped make it happen this past year. Some invested, some gave advice, some provided steak samples and some joined the staff. It’s a sad anniversary for me, but also a time to be very thankful for the amazing way this all came together.

Johnson faces felony tax charges

(Business Report Daily, March 18, 2009)

It’s too bad Johnson Dairy doesn’t qualify as a bank – then it could get bailout money even with its tax troubles. It’s also too bad John Johnson isn’t a candidate for Secretary of the Treasury – then he would get confirmed by the Senate instead of charged by the D.A. Finally, it’s too bad that John Johnson didn’t convince anybody that his dairy, one of the largest in the country, was “too big to fail” – then it would have gotten billions of dollars from the federal government, and it could have avoided bankruptcy.

Yeah, I’m bitter.

Sour notes ring in Arpeggio Village

(NCBR, March 27-April 9, 2009)

What about the appraisers, inspectors, mortgage brokers, title companies and cooperating real estate agents? Who went over the HUD sellers and buyers statements? There are many criminals here.

Manage terminations with respect,

discretion

(NCBR, March 27-April 9, 2009)

I find (Dawn Duncan’s Authentic Entrepreneur column) accurate and compassionate and respectful. About the only thing I would add would be in the commentary about having a security guard present. As you noted, it can make an employee feel like a criminal at worst, despite years of faithful service. It is in fact a rare employee that would do something violent or destructive. Perhaps there are more respectful ways of protecting assets, such as disconnecting the computer’s connection to the network and having a manager present rather than a security guard.

Hageseth faces jail time in telemedicine case

(NCBR, March 27-April 9, 2009)

In today’s mobile society this investigation and charges are a waste of taxpayers’ money!

“First, do no harm.” If the doctor had knowledge of the condition and did not prescribe anti-depressants, and the youth still chose to take his life, the charges would be brought for not helping and causing his death. The government and law enforcement want to run health care! Mark my words, it will be worse than the insurance companies running health care!

With AE, Kodak cuts, has the economy

finally caught up with NoCo?

As one of the many unemployed, some of the evidence I see is in the weekly Northern Colorado Networking Group (NoCoNet) attendance rising from 45-50 last October to 170-200 out-of-work professionals in all sectors. There have been up to 60 new members in one week, with 25-40 being common. We really need more “white collar” industry in our communities, not more entry-level service positions.
