FAIRFIELD — 
Business parks have been a rising trend in the region over the past two decades, which is “a sign of the strength of the regional economy,” said Fairfield’s development director.
Ambrose Property Group plans to invest up to $50 million as it constructs as many as five new buildings on the planned 137-acre Fairfield Commerce Park, which includes the formerly owned Liberty Mutual building. The Indianapolis company is not alone in building these types of complexes in the region, as two others recently announced plans to either build or expand a business park in Butler and Warren counties.

NorthPoint Development is looking to add 24 acres along Union Centre Boulevard to the company’s adjacent West Chester Trade Center business park. The business park is already 68 percent leased with 500 new jobs brought into the township, and NorthPoint officials say “there’s still plenty of interest” in the remaining complex.

In neighboring Warren County, the Research & Development Park in Mason landed Cincinnati-based VEGA. The pressure measurement technology company plans to construct a new $50 million headquarters and bring in more than 200 new jobs, and it promises to add 50 more jobs in the next five years.The Fairfield park is Ambrose Property’s …

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Lutheran Services Carolinas and Kintegra Health are now sponsoring members of PACE of the Southern Piedmont. PACE is an acronym for “Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly.”
Participants who receive healthcare services from PACE will not notice any change since the corporate members primarily affect governance, growth and strategic planning. The change in nonprofit ownership was driven by the need for local members who have a strong community presence and the ability to grow services in the community.
Lutheran Services Carolinas, based in Salisbury,  partners with three PACE programs: PACE@Home in Hickory, Senior TLC in Gastonia and PACE of the Triad in Greensboro.
“Teaming up with PACE of the Southern Piedmont is a natural fit for Lutheran Services Carolinas because of our long history of serving North Carolina seniors,” said Ted Goins, president of Lutheran Services Carolinas.
Kintegra Health offers services in Alexander, Catawba, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Gaston, Iredell and Lincoln counties.  Kintegra is a sponsoring partner of Senior TLC, a PACE program in Gastonia.

Will Wichita businesses comply with mask ordinance? Business owners have mixed reactions

will wichita businesses comply with mask ordinance? business owners have mixed reactions

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – As masks become the new requirement in Wichita, XY Bar is choosing to loosen the straps and making masks optional for guests and even their staff. “We don’t make our employees come to work if they don’t feel safe. We definitely don’t have a right to make our customers come in if they don’t feel safe but they have a choice and they have the right to make that choice and we’re gonna give them that right,” said Chad Porter, Owner of XY Bar.

Initially after Governor Laura Kelly’s executive order XY Bar was only going to make masks optional for customers and required for staff. However, they decided to change that after the city voted them to be required in public places in Wichita. “Anybody can come in and shut us down, I totally understand that but there are also civil liberties in play here and I take play with that,” said Porter.

Depending on whether it is a first or repeat offense, people caught in Wichita without masks can see anywhere from $25, $50, up to a $100 fine.

Something Porter says he is not worried about, “If i get a fine …

From May 13 to 25, the contest accepted nominations from the public, with the individuals receiving the most nods deemed the winners.“God put it on my heart to be proactive during this time,” Jayson Frederick said. “We just felt like instead of sitting and waiting for business to rebound, we used the downtime to create a project that …

Evan Vucci/AP

President Trump signed legislation Saturday extending the deadline for small businesses to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program, enacted in the weeks following the economic shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The original deadline to apply for the PPP was this past Tuesday night. But $130 billion still remained in the fund, out of $660 billion allocated. Both houses of Congress approved the extension unanimously earlier this week. With Trump’s signature Saturday, businesses will now have until Aug. 8 to apply for the assistance. The PPP lets businesses get direct government subsidies for payroll, rent and other costs. The subsidies come as federal loans, but those loans can be forgiven if businesses use at least 60% of the funds for payroll. The program has so far doled out about $520 billion in loans to almost 5 million small businesses across the country. The loans were meant to let businesses cover about two and a half months of typical …
