SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to Area Residents Affected by Severe Storms and Heavy Rain

The Gilmer Free Press

West Virginia residents and businesses affected by the severe storms and heavy rain on June 12-19, 2013 can apply for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, SBA Administrator Karen G. Mills announced today.

Administrator Mills made the loans available in response to a letter from Governor Earl Ray Tomblin on August 23, 2013, requesting a disaster declaration by the SBA. The declaration covers Roane County and the adjacent counties of Calhoun, Clay, Jackson, Kanawha and Wirt in West Virginia.

“The SBA is strongly committed to providing the people of West Virginia with the most effective and customer-focused response possible to assist homeowners, renters, and businesses of all sizes with federal disaster loans,” said Administrator Mills. “Getting businesses and communities up and running after a disaster is our highest priority at SBA.”

“Loans up to $200,000 are available to homeowners to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate. Homeowners and renters are eligible for loans up to $40,000 to repair or replace damaged or destroyed personal property,” said Frank Skaggs, director of SBA’s Field Operations Center East in Atlanta. SBA’s customer service representatives are available at the Disaster Loan Outreach Center to answer questions about the disaster loan program and help individuals complete their applications.

The center is located in the following community and is open as indicated:

“Businesses and non-profit organizations of any size may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets,” said Judy McCauley, SBA’s West Virginia district director.

Applicants may be eligible for a loan amount increase up to 20% of their physical damages, as verified by the SBA, to make improvements that help prevent the risk of future property damage caused by a similar disaster.

For small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small aquaculture businesses and most private non-profit organizations of all sizes, the SBA offers Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) to help meet working capital needs caused by the disaster. EIDL assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any physical property damage.

Interest rates are as low as 1.875% for homeowners and renters, 2.875% for non-profit organizations and 4% for businesses with terms up to 30 years. Loan amounts and terms are set by the SBA and are based on each applicant’s financial condition.

Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.

Individuals and businesses unable to visit the center may also obtain information and loan applications by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1.800.659.2955 (1.800.877.8339 for the deaf and hard-of-hearing), or by emailing . Loan applications can also be downloaded at www.sba.gov/disaster. Completed applications should be returned to the center or mailed to: U.S. Small Business Administration, Processing and Disbursement Center, 14925 Kingsport Road, Fort Worth, TX 76155.

CGCC: Repair Projects Needed for Automotive Program - Fall 2013

image

The Automotive Program at Calhoun Gilmer Career Center is now accepting live vehicles as lab projects for our students. The details are as follows.


How much does it cost?

Low Labor Price at $5 per hour, charged by the job not the time it takes the student to complete the project. An authorization of at least $50 toward repairs is required for all requests. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time.


Should I bring my own parts or will you provide them?

We can provide parts for your vehicle. The cost of parts is the same list price that you would pay at the parts store. Of course you are welcome to provide parts for your own vehicle if you know what it needs.


Instructions

Call the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center to set up a time to have your vehicle repaired. You will be asked a few questions such as the Year, Make and Model of your vehicle. Afterwards, we will call you to set up a time when you can drop your vehicle off. It is possible we will need your vehicle for several days.


What not to bring:

•  Body Work
•  Carburetors
•  Vehicles that have been sitting unused.
•  A vehicle that you can’t be without for more than one day.

Make sure you can drop the vehicle off. Customers won’t be waiting at the facility for the vehicle to be repaired.


Vehicles should be 1996 or newer.


Types of Repairs we need:

•  Battery Problems, Starting and charging issues
•  Alternators
•  Brakes
•  Ball Joints,
•  Suspension
•  Wheel Alignment,
•  Loose Steering
•  Shocks & struts
•  Wheel bearings
•  Air Conditioning & Heating
•  Tune ups,
•  water pumps,
•  Misfires
•  Overheating,
•  Coolant Leaks


Frequently Asked Questions:

A student calls me to bring my car in for a repair. What should I expect? The students will request that you bring your car up to the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center before the designated lab and check the car in with the front office. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time. Once the student has had an opportunity to diagnose your car he will call and give you a preliminary diagnosis and obtain any additional information. The student should also call you with regular progress reports.

Can you come and get my vehicle for me? It is the customer responsibility to deliver the vehicle to us. We do not have a towing service but there are many good ones locally who will be willing to serve you.

Will you diagnose my vehicle for me and then I will do the repairs? No. The focus of the program is that the students get to experience not only the diagnosis, but also the knowledge that the diagnosis was correct. This helps them to build confidence and learn many important things during the repair process.

Can I pick up my car at the end of each day? No. The only time you may take your vehicle is after a completed repair. All parts and service fees must be paid before the vehicle can be released.

How long will the repair take? Students only work during on projects the designated labs which follow class schedules. Because this is a learning environment we are not as efficient as regular retail shops. Therefore most projects will be here for a minimum of 2 lab periods. The bigger the job the more lab periods required to complete the repair.

How may I pay for my repair? We will take cash, check.

What kind of cars are you looking for? This needs to be a good experience for both the customer and the student. We prefer modern technology to supplement the classes. Therefore 1996 and newer is a good place to start. We would like vehicles which have a natural problem. Cars that have already been taken apart, dismantled, sitting for more than a year, or have been modified from original production; do not make good projects. The cars that make the best candidates are ones that are currently licensed and insured; something that has been in use and has developed an issue or concern under normal use.


DISCLAIMER - Repairs made will be done as an instructional project by automotive students.  The school and its employees and agents will not be liable for loss or damage to the vehicle.  You agree that the vehicle will not be released until fees are paid.  A mechanics lien may be assigned to the vehicle to recover those fees.  Students may operate the vehicle for purposes of testing and diagnosis at your risk.

Mt Zion Drive In Theater Faces Closure; Honda’s Project-Drive-In Aims to Keep Outdoor Screens Lit

The Gilmer Free Press

The end of 35mm film distribution by the end of the year could shut down Mt Zion Drive In Theater and Restaurant because of the costly switch to digital projection.

Project Drive-In, a national effort sponsored by Honda to save as many drive-ins as possible, is raising community awareness across the country and giving people easy ways to get involved and ensure that this historic part of American cinema and car culture lives on.

At www.projectdrivein.com, people can vote to determine which five drive-in theaters will receive a new digital projector from Honda.

The site also encourages people to share Project Drive-In with family and friends via social media, email or texts, pledge to see one movie at their local drive-in and contribute to the national save-the-drive-in fund to keep more drive-ins in business.

“We need everyone to vote and show support for our drive in, otherwise our screen will go dark.  We have provided a family destination for over 63 years 3 generations of memories have been made here.  It would be a shame not to be able to continue the tradition for future generations.  Thanks to Honda, our community and patrons have the opportunity to show their support by texting in Vote8 to 444999, or voting online.“, said Bonnie Sands, Manager at Mt Zion Drive In.

Voting on www.projectdrivein.com will take place from August 09 to September 09, 2013. The five winning theaters will be revealed in September and each will host a celebration.

“Cars and drive-in theaters go hand in hand, and it’s our mission to save this slice of Americana that holds such nostalgia for so many of us,” said Alicia Jones, Manager of Honda & Acura Social Marketing American Honda Motor Co., Inc., at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re committed to helping drive-in theaters remain viable and flourish with the move to digital projection.”

CGCC: Repair Projects Needed for Automotive Program - Fall 2013

image

The Automotive Program at Calhoun Gilmer Career Center is now accepting live vehicles as lab projects for our students. The details are as follows.


How much does it cost?

Low Labor Price at $5 per hour, charged by the job not the time it takes the student to complete the project. An authorization of at least $50 toward repairs is required for all requests. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time.


Should I bring my own parts or will you provide them?

We can provide parts for your vehicle. The cost of parts is the same list price that you would pay at the parts store. Of course you are welcome to provide parts for your own vehicle if you know what it needs.


Instructions

Call the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center to set up a time to have your vehicle repaired. You will be asked a few questions such as the Year, Make and Model of your vehicle. Afterwards, we will call you to set up a time when you can drop your vehicle off. It is possible we will need your vehicle for several days.


What not to bring:

•  Body Work
•  Carburetors
•  Vehicles that have been sitting unused.
•  A vehicle that you can’t be without for more than one day.

Make sure you can drop the vehicle off. Customers won’t be waiting at the facility for the vehicle to be repaired.


Vehicles should be 1996 or newer.


Types of Repairs we need:

•  Battery Problems, Starting and charging issues
•  Alternators
•  Brakes
•  Ball Joints,
•  Suspension
•  Wheel Alignment,
•  Loose Steering
•  Shocks & struts
•  Wheel bearings
•  Air Conditioning & Heating
•  Tune ups,
•  water pumps,
•  Misfires
•  Overheating,
•  Coolant Leaks


Frequently Asked Questions:

A student calls me to bring my car in for a repair. What should I expect? The students will request that you bring your car up to the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center before the designated lab and check the car in with the front office. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time. Once the student has had an opportunity to diagnose your car he will call and give you a preliminary diagnosis and obtain any additional information. The student should also call you with regular progress reports.

Can you come and get my vehicle for me? It is the customer responsibility to deliver the vehicle to us. We do not have a towing service but there are many good ones locally who will be willing to serve you.

Will you diagnose my vehicle for me and then I will do the repairs? No. The focus of the program is that the students get to experience not only the diagnosis, but also the knowledge that the diagnosis was correct. This helps them to build confidence and learn many important things during the repair process.

Can I pick up my car at the end of each day? No. The only time you may take your vehicle is after a completed repair. All parts and service fees must be paid before the vehicle can be released.

How long will the repair take? Students only work during on projects the designated labs which follow class schedules. Because this is a learning environment we are not as efficient as regular retail shops. Therefore most projects will be here for a minimum of 2 lab periods. The bigger the job the more lab periods required to complete the repair.

How may I pay for my repair? We will take cash, check.

What kind of cars are you looking for? This needs to be a good experience for both the customer and the student. We prefer modern technology to supplement the classes. Therefore 1996 and newer is a good place to start. We would like vehicles which have a natural problem. Cars that have already been taken apart, dismantled, sitting for more than a year, or have been modified from original production; do not make good projects. The cars that make the best candidates are ones that are currently licensed and insured; something that has been in use and has developed an issue or concern under normal use.


DISCLAIMER - Repairs made will be done as an instructional project by automotive students.  The school and its employees and agents will not be liable for loss or damage to the vehicle.  You agree that the vehicle will not be released until fees are paid.  A mechanics lien may be assigned to the vehicle to recover those fees.  Students may operate the vehicle for purposes of testing and diagnosis at your risk.

Pennzoil-Quaker State Cleanup Plan Approved for Calhoun County Site

The Gilmer Free Press

State environmental regulators have approved a cleanup method from Pennzoil-Quaker State Company, doing business as SOPUS Products, for the former Shell Cain Station on Route 12 near Richardson, Calhoun County.

The 0.29-acre site was formerly used as a crude oil gathering and pumping station and is currently vacant. Pennzoil-Quaker State negotiated a Voluntary Remediation Agreement with the state Department of Environmental Protection in 2009 and has been working with the DEP to address environmental conditions on the property.

The final cleanup method includes institutional controls to achieve the goal of protection of human health and the environment. Those controls will include use of groundwater exclusively for groundwater monitoring and/or remediation; and for buildings to be constructed at the site, incorporation of sub-slab vapor barriers and/or ventilation systems designed to achieve compliance with applicable indoor air risk-based concentrations as determined by a Licensed Remediation Specialist or similarly qualified individual.

This project falls under the state’s Voluntary Remediation and Redevelopment Act. The VRRA encourages voluntary cleanups of contaminated sites, as well as redevelopment of abandoned and under-utilized properties, in the hope of counteracting the lack of growth on sites with contamination or perceived contamination.

Questions regarding the VRRA or this application may be directed to either:

Manchin and Rockefeller Announce Investments to Create Jobs in Mid-Ohio Valley

The Gilmer Free Press

U.S. Senators Joe Manchin and Jay Rockefeller (both D-WV) Friday announced that the Economic Development Administration will provide $60,000 to the Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council to invest in job creation and economic development in the region. The Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council consists of the counties of Calhoun, Jackson, Ritchie, Roane, Tyler, Wirt and Wood.

“Establishing strategies to bring good-paying jobs to our state that will deliver paychecks for West Virginia families and offer economic opportunities are smart investments for our state,” Senator Manchin said. “This funding shows that a partnership between the public and private sectors can work together to help boost our economy and improve the economic success in regions across West Virginia and this country.”

“Targeted business investments in our rural communities can help boost job creation initiatives, which are key to any successful economic development plan,” Senator Rockefeller said. “I’m confident the Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Council will put this investment to good use and support local efforts to make West Virginia a better place to work, live and thrive.”
