Despite a rainy start, valley businesses report a solid Fourth weekend

By Marti Mayne
CONWAY – It would be pretty tough for any destination in the path of Tropical Storm Arthur to not be impacted by the weather and wind this past Fourth of July weekend. Between dire forecasts keeping travelers home and wind and rain to start the three-day holiday weekend, Mount Washington Valley actually fared pretty well, according to an informal survey by the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. The weekend started out with rain and continued with wind, making it difficult to plan for July Fourth fireworks. However, in the end, the show still went on in towns throughout the valley, and plenty of hot dogs were consumed between the picnics and the chili dog eating contest in Schouler Park.

Wheels: Problems after repairs

By Eric Meltzer
Frustration: One of the feelings you get after picking up your car from the repair shop only to discover a problem. Maybe the problem is completely different, maybe it seems the same, maybe it is the same. Ugh! How can this be?

I acknowledge that this may be considered a not-often-discussed subject for some shops and even some mechanics. After all, no one wants a reputation for shoddy work or to charge a customer for a repair that was not effective, but problems do occur following a repair and it does not necessarily indicate any deficiency on the part of the repair shop, so let's discuss how this can happen.

Michael Kline: People vs. Systems, Part 2

By Michael Kline
The E-Myth may have a flaw. In our last article, we discussed the critical need for systems. According to Michael Gerber, author of the famous "E-Myth - Why Small Businesses Fail and What to Do About it," we should organize our business around functions, not people. Systems run our business and we hire people to run the systems. I would argue a bit with my long-time hero. Time has proven that the battle between systems and people is not quite so simple.
