These are the same four states that also lagged the rest of the economy in the last four months. More

FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Supposed new Oregon OSHA fees have the construction industry worried, and rightfully so: The fees don't really exist, and the person who called to collect isn't an OSHA employee but rather a scam artist.

The National Demolition Association's 24th Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for March 5, 2011 is moving to a new venue.

It’s hard to believe that less than a year ago, most of these shops stood empty, the market itself destined for demolition. In the last six months, Brixton Market has burst back into life, largely through a revitalization project led by the nonprofit organization Space Makers Agency in cooperation with Friends of Brixton Market, a local group that succeeded in getting the market listed by the Department of Culture for heritage protection.

Construction & Demolition Recycling    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A proposed rule on the handling and use of coal ash that was released in June by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency could create significant problems for many small businesses, according to a release by Congressman Heath Shuler (D-N.C.).
