Impending Move and a Riddle!

So, The Columbian decided to post an article that claimed LUSB was buying the Camas Post Office. While we are seriously considering this location as a potential move for our admin and offices, it is far from a done deal as reported. Basically, we agreed to the price and offer, but we still have a bunch of work to do to find out if it is a viable location for us. Unfortunately, inspections and occupancy investigation cannot occur until the parties agree to an offer, so here we go...

The Camas PO has a lot of interesting features, and some inherent benefits to us, however we will continue to evaluate our interest based on what occurs in the next few weeks. So stay tuned... There is no shortage of available property on the market!

We have begun our LEAN training for 2011! Mark McGrath is our LEAN champion, and he will be working hard to redesign how and what we do internally. Go Mark!

In addition, Rob Hicks has been hired as VP of Tactical Markets. Rob's resume reads like a state department press release - full of info I don't understand, and am not allowed to understand. We'll leave it at that!

Here's our first riddle for you all. If you answer correctly, you win a $25 gift certificate to Starbucks and one of our cool dog GoBowls...

Q: A seller sells it, and doesn't need it.
A buyer buys it, but doesn't use it.
A user uses it, but never sees it.

What is it?

Whoa, Nellie!

When the S&P downgrades your credit rating, do you think the politicos might respond with a bit of caution? Nah, why? What, me worry? Silly rabbit, ratings are for kids!

If the fiscal disaster that is our government doesn't truly resolve to solve their hemorrhage of not-yet-printed-nor-actually-even-real cash, then maybe we deserve to be sent back to econ grammar school. That vacuum sound isn't just taxpayer clams, it is the sucking sound of politicians playing smoke and mirrors with their constituents and fancy accounting lingo.

I don't buy talk. Try again. We'll be here waiting, hostage.

Top Secret Mission Confirmed

That's right, we're on a top secret mission right now... Can't say what it's for, but I can tell you it's a big hit for LUSB. Good job team, we're proud of all of you!

Next up, finding a new home for LUSB. Should know more by end of April...

New LUSB site coming very soon, maybe even this weekend...
