Good News: GE Aviation will add over 100 jobs and expand its manufacturing space at their West Jefferson plant over the next five years. Facilities in Durham and near Wilmington also will benefit from the expansion. The average salary: around $47,900 dollars plus benefits. With the projected expansion, GE Aviation will become Ashe County’s second largest manufacturing employer. http://www.journalnow.com/business/business_news/local/article_8f2bf5ee-e8bb-11e2-ae96-001a4bcf6878.html

They LOVE my truck?  The top ten vehicles stolen in the U.S. over the past several years were all trucks and SUVs according to the Highway Loss Data Institute.  The four-wheel drive Ford F-250 crew cab pickup is the vehicle most vulnerable to theft.  The Cadillac Escalade (former #1) dropped to sixth. Check out the rest of the10 most stolen vehicles list: http://www.iihs.org/news/rss/pr070913.html

A low-cost rabies vaccination clinic will be held this Saturday morning from 9 to 11am at the Forsyth County Animal Shelter.  The cost is $5 (cash only)… FYI: All dogs must be on a leash, and cats and ferrets must be in carriers.

Tropical Storm Chantal currently brewing in the Caribbean could impact the East Coast of the US by early next week.  A projection map shows Chantal brushing Puerto Rico and slamming into the Dominican Republic and Haiti on later today.  www.weather.com

Over 50% of American workers leave vacation days on the table each year. On average, 11 vacation days are unused. Reasons: Workers feel they have too much work or they couldn’t afford to travel.   BTW: The UK requires employers to give at least 28 vacation days. In Finland, France and Greece, the minimum is 25 days. In Germany and Japan, it’s 20 days. Survey by Kelton Research. http://myfox8.com/2012/05/18/study-many-americans-dont-use-vacation-days/
