Lakewood eyeing OPWC funds for water main improvements throughout city

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — This summer Lakewood was awarded $750,000 in Water Main Replacement Project funds from the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC).

Now the city is planning to begin work next spring on Lauderdale Avenue (between Detroit and Madison avenues), Leedale Avenue (between Lake Avenue and Edgewater Boulevard) and Elbur Avenue (Between Athens Avenue and Lakewood Heights Boulevard).

Olivia Lomax had been wanting to live in Midtown for years. Her business, Delta Groove Yoga, was part of the 2013 revival of Overton Square. However, her children, Dylan, Bella and Henry, were all going to grade school in East Memphis. When the youngest child started middle school in Midtown and her daughter started at the new Crosstown High, the family actively started looking for a house within the Parkway system.

U.S. coffee drinkers consume as much at home during pandemic, poll shows

By Marcelo Teixeira

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Americans are drinking just as much coffee during the pandemic, as often as before, but at home instead of in coffee shops and restaurants, a poll released on Wednesday showed.

Online purchases have jumped by 57% as coffee buyers cut back on trips to the supermarket, according to the survey commissioned by the National Coffee Association (NCA).

Consumer habits for the period in Aug. 26 to Sept. 3 were similar to those in a January poll, with six in 10 people drinking coffee everyday, at an average of 2.9 cups per day.

The pandemic’s impact on demand for commodities such as coffee, sugar or wheat has been difficult to gauge. But the association cited signs that greater home consumption has offset falling sales at businesses, without providing volume data.

How To Help Your Sales Teams Avoid Work-From-Home Burnout

I am CSO of the Bridge Group, responsible for sales and customer success.

While there are a lot of good and positive things about remote working (especially avoiding lengthy commutes and traffic), there are also downsides that we’ve never had to deal with before. At first, working at home was kind of a nice change. Many sales reps who used to travel three out of every four weeks of the month could now spend more time with their families or have more time to themselves. However, as the work-from-home situation continues, many of them are starting to feel even more isolated because they are not used to being at home this much. They miss being on the road, spending time with their team and visiting with clients face to face. It’s been a real adjustment.

Here are some tips to help your sales team feel connected and avoid
