NEW BUSINESS:

 

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala received the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's New Car Assessment Program. The redesigned, full-sized sedan presents one of the most comprehensive collections of standard and available safety features in the segment. It employs advanced technologies-including radar-to help avoid crashes. Visual and audible alerts, depending on the alert feature, helps drivers identify crash situations and even intervene if a crash appears imminent. Chevrolet's globally recognized bowtie celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. In 1913, Chevrolet co-founder William Durant introduced the Chevy bowtie on the 1914 Chevrolet H-2 Royal Mail and the H-4 Baby Grand, centered at the front of both models.

 

Sixty million Chevrolets are on the roads today and the bowtie has adorned 215 million Chevrolets over the century. A Chevrolet crossover or truck is sold every 6.39 seconds in one of 140 countries, and the brand set a sales record of 2.5 million in the first six months of the year. The bowtie's centennial is marked by new entries, such as the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel compact sedan in the U.S. and the Trax small SUV in 40 international markets. GM pledged to double the number of models that get a least 40m.p.g. on the highway by 2017 and cut emissions from its U.S. vehicles by 15% over the next three years. In its annual sustainability report, GM said it had reduced its global energy used by 7% since 2010. The company has 105 facilities that recycle or reuse all of their waste, sending nothing to landfills.

Dale retired in July 2004 and was rehired as a contractor till December of 05.  Says he had some fun and sometimes it seems like just yesterday.

QUOTE OF THE MOTH:

 

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal:  it is the courage to continue that counts." Sir Winston Churchill.

 

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

Anyone interested in purchasing a new truck?  Good deals on the 2013 Silverado models are available.

 

Olin  Conrad brought information in from the GM Retirees site: Tax elections for your Prudential Annuity must be made no later than Sept. l, 2013. If you do not communicate your tax election to Prudential by Sept. lst. beginning with your Oct. l,2013 payment, Your  monthly payments from Prudential will reflect default withholdings based on the guidelines provided by the I.R.S. and your state of residence, and will remain in effect until you contact Prudential. If you have already made your tax withholding election with Prudential, no further action is required. Olin had not done his and thought that others might also be interested in this info.
