Michael Cherian reaches New Orleans with help from strangers, duct tape

November 4, 2011

NEW ORLEANS — During his 1,880-mile canoe trip to New Orleans this summer, Michael Cherian learned first-hand what it was like to be up the creek without a paddle.

In his case, however, the creek was the Mississippi River.

Cherian, rowing his customized canoe — dubbed “Steady Eddie,” in honor of his grandfather, the late Edward H. Burrows — to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, reached his destination of New Orleans in September, but not before taking in a few more experiences once he finally reached the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers.

Chamber members must be active to maintain network, president says

November 4, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — If a business owner seeks to reach new clients and connections, he or she need not click a mouse on social networking Web sites.

There’s already a wireless tool for making connections, and that’s the Punxsutawney Area Chamber of Commerce, according to Board of Directors President Jeff Curtis.

Curtis, who gave a “State of the Chamber” address during the organization’s annual luncheon Thursday at the Punxsy Country Club, said if one isn’t sure what exactly the Chamber does, he or she should think about life without a Chamber of Commerce.
