Business Briefcase: July 13, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone.

It’s great to be back delivering business news tidbits. There was no way to know this beforehand, but your Briefcase host spent a weekend camping in the Coconino National Forest. It was a nice, recharging time in nature, not worrying about emails, cellular service, traffic or eating on a plate. That’s right, tinfoil bowls for the win! I wholeheartedly recommend the camping/hiking experience among the pines up north.

Business Briefcase: July 6, 2016

Hello again, readers, and welcome to the July 6 edition of the Business Briefcase.

Happy belated birthday, United States of America. You don’t look a day over 240! Or a day over 233, if you don’t consider the birth of the U.S. to start until the Revolutionary War ended in 1783. You can also be technical and not count it until the country adopted its current government with the signing of the Constitution in 1789. We’re only 227, then.

Business Briefcase - June 29, 2016

Welcome to the final June edition of the Business Briefcase.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, we’re about to begin the dog days of summer. That’s right, if you didn’t think the summer had really announced its presence already, there’s more to look forward to starting July 3.

Business Briefcase - June 22, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, everyone.

I’ll have to be quick getting through this edition, because I have some food warming up outside and I don’t want it to burn. At this point, it’s a more economical option than using the oven.

Sports editor Casey Pritchard filled me in that a certain company won’t be making deliveries for online orders because of the chance the intense heat will damage the product. That doesn’t seem good for business.

Business Briefcase - June 16, 2016

Hello again, everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of the Business Briefcase, hot off the press!

I’d like to wish a happy belated birthday to my younger cousin! This is coming from the kindness of my heart, as I wasn’t promised a cut of the birthday loot. It’s unfortunate, because she made off like a bandit. I’m thinking about trying to get on some sort of program that will let me celebrate my birthday every month, gifts included. Plus, it’d be fun to tell people I’m 300-plus “years” old.

Business Briefcase: June 8, 2016

I’d like to start this week’s edition of the Business Briefcase with a swift congratulations to all the Valley dwellers who didn’t make it out of town last weekend. We survived the first official heat attack of the summer. If you did go out of town, where was the invite? Just kidding (a little bit).

The weather folks said it reached 115 degrees June 4, breaking the record of 113 set in 1990. I can’t confirm any of those numbers, though. My temperature gauge just says “stay indoors” at a certain point. I need to get that checked.

Business Briefcase: June 1, 2016

Welcome to the Business Briefcase, readers. Glad to have you aboard on this fine June day.

We’re officially to the halfway month of the year, but not the exact halfway point. Some quick math says it’s July 2 right at midnight, thanks to 2016 being a leap year.

Did you know Kentucky was admitted as the 15th state on this date in 1792? Happy birthday, Kentucky!

Business Briefcase: May 25, 2016

Hello, readers, and welcome to the Business Briefcase.

I’m going to chalk up my recent street-light luck to being cursed. There are two traffic signals along Van Buren Street, just east of the Agua Fria River, and one of them just went active a few weeks ago. Since that time, I’ve yet to make it through the quarter-mile stretch without getting stopped at one of them, sometimes both.
