 NEW BUSINESS:

 

General Motors announced today that it sold 194,699 vehicles in the U.S. in January, up 16% compared with a year ago. Retail sales were up 24%. Fleet sales were down 2%.

 

The big news is: The government in January began selling its remaining shares of General Motors stock at a predetermined pace as previously announced, according to a Treasury Department report. The Treasury Department sold $156.4 million in GM stock in January, when shares traded about $28 to $30.        General Motors added another outsider to its global marketing team, hiring Tim Mahoney from Volkswagen of America to be Chevrolet's global marketing chief. General Motors is considering building a $258 million data center in Milford Township as part of its information technology overhaul, according to documents submitted to the municipality. GM requested a tax abatement to construct a $100,000square-foot data center at its sprawling Milford Proving ground campus, where engineers conduct secretive work on future GM products.

 

Rick Marine has resigned as a Trustee.  Donald Funke volunteered to replace him.

QUOTE OF THE MOTH:

 

The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around...Throughout history, "tender loving care" has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing.  ~Larry Dossey
