United Solar Ovonic is opening its doors in my hometown of Greenville, Michigan.  I was unable to find a press release stating as much on their site, but I did find the job openings.

Apparently, Greenville is slated to be in National News tonight on NBC Nightly News in an interview with Anne Thompson.  Maybe this 2-3 minute segment will shed more light on the deal.

I am quite skeptical about this proposed deal.  It’s a good sign that it’s a “green technology” using the old Electrolux/Frigidair/Gibson site.  But, I wonder if it’s just a green version of smokestacking.

I suppose, only time will truly tell.

      Gibson’s refrigerators. The factory was the largest for refrigerators in the U.S. We’ll see what happens now with this solar thing. I just found this link. Apparently, Frigidaire/Electrolux/Gibson are the same with Electrolux being the parent company.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
