  • USPS is a service, not a business

    For one dollar you can send a birthday card to Uncle Moosejaw in Alaska and an anniversary card to Aunt Aloha in Hawaii and the post office will give you back 12 cents in change.

    How on earth can the United States Postal Service make a profit on this transaction?

  • Incorporation is key to acquisition

    Hardin Memorial Health’s decision to purchase Elizabethtown Diagnostic Imaging could be a win-win for everyone if the right steps are taken to correctly incorporate it into the hospital’s service selections.

    Purchasing a business such as EDI means much more than buying a name or a building. The experience of the staff and the established client expectation of satisfaction also are valued assets.

  • Food distribution finds wide spectrum of clients

    In heat already edging into the 80s, they line up for a supply of food provided by Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland.
