DAHL ATTENDED WHIRLPOOL SEMINAR Victor Dahl, (right), owner of V & V Electronic & Appliance in Huntley, recently attended a one-week seminar in Dealer Management conducted by Whirlpool Corporation at it* Educational Center in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Twenty-two men and women, including Dahl and represehting 12 states, spent the week leaming more about financial management, advertising and promotion, personnel, service, merchandising and good management techniques. The Whirpool Education Center was founded over 14 years ago and has trained literally thousands of independent appliance dealers to compete effectively in business. Over the years, the Center has changed from what was a product training school to a facility that now runs sophisticated clinics including: Dealer Management Seminars; Retail sales Clinics; Mass Merchant Seminars) Sons and Daughters of Dealers Seminars; and Builder-Dealer Seminars, to name only a few. Dahl received a Certificate of Achievement from Whirlpool national manager of retail education Daniel B. Spear upon successful completion of the Seminar. SCHOOL BOARD LOOKING INTO LEGAL ACTION At last week's School Board meeting, the Board approved the building repairs by the Kenneth Allen Construction Co. to the gym lobby roof and the gym itself. The steel angles have been ordered but will not be in for several weeks. The building is still considered unsafe. A final report from the insurance company is due soon. Dr. Bunt reported that the Board had met with a law firm last week and would be meeting with another one this week to review the possibility of legal action. This could be taken because of thc faulty construction of the lobby roof. Bridget did not connect the trusses and the roof was capable of holding only 20 lbs. of pressure while the maximum required weight is 30 lbs. Another reason for legal action could be the design ofthe lobby roof which rested 5 feet below the gym roof and apparently was not slanted enough. This area became a catch basin for much of the snow which fell the night of January 13th. As of now no statement is being made as t« when or if the Board will take legal action against the contractor or architect.
