This feature makes it possible for the customer to view their artwork, mark it up online, and send it back to the designer instantly.Partial funding for the web site was provided by Northern Community Investment Corporation (NCIC) through a Rural Business Enterprise Grand from USDA rural development.”This is a business plan we really wanted to get behind,” explained Alex Ibey of NCIC. “Our hope is that Upstart Marketing builds on the number of tech based companies in our region that are capable of serving a national market. Tom is a great asset to the Northeast Kingdom and we were pleased to be a small part in his new and exciting venture.”Stillwell echoed these hopes for the new company by citing confidence in local talent. “We’re fortunate to have some highly skilled Vermont based designers on our team, and we believe that will translate into the kind of high quality reputation you can build on.”For more information on Upstart Marketing, LLC you can visit www.upstartmarketing.net(link is external), or call 1-866-245-5196, or e-mail [email protected](link sends e-mail)last_img read more

That’s just what the men and women of Alpena Fire Department do almost everyday.Early Wednesday morning, the fire department practiced routines and trained during a victim rescue just as if they were in a real life fire.“What we’re doing as far as the training is we’re going over a couple different scenarios. One is a victim rescue and the other one is a mayday situation,” Captain Rob Edmonds said.The department has training once a month to prevent accidents like the one they had while putting out flames during a fire last month. When it comes to this type of training, Edmonds said firefighters need to make sure they are in great shape.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Alpena Fire Department, City of Alpena Fire Department, Fire Department, Fire TrainingContinue ReadingPrevious H.P.C.
