IBEW Local 300 Electricians Volunteer at Barre Garden Show

first_imgBarre, Vt. – (March 17, 2008) – The Central Vermont Garden Show recently welcomed electricians from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 300 into the mix.Seven IBEW Local 300 members volunteered nearly five hours apiece March 12 to help set up tables, chairs, displays and brand new electrical mats for the event. Volunteers included Kyle Brown, John Burditt, Tiffany Copley, Randie Dayton, Steve Edwards, Katy Ramstack and Greg Tessier. Copley, Edwards, Ramstack and Tessier are all central Vermonters.”The IBEW was proud to partner with the Garden Show, as several of our constituents reside in the Barre area,” said Local 300 Marketing and Business Development Director Matt Lash, a Granite City native. “Community service dovetails with our unions unwavering commitment to social responsibility and the common good.”The 2008 Central Vermont Garden Show ran at the Barre Civic Center March 14-16 and featured landscape exhibits, a garden railroad, floral competitions and educational workshops. All proceeds benefited the Friends of the Central Vermont YMCA, while the electrical mats – used to safely cover power cords in pedestrian and vehicular traffic ways – were later donated to the City of Barre.”We were so thankful for the help from IBEW electricians,” said Garden Show Chairwoman Jeanne Daniele. “Their much-appreciated volunteerism embodies what union labor is all about ‘hard work’ and certainly helped make our first-ever promotion a success.”ABOUT THE IBEW LOCAL 300Based in South Burlington, the IBEW Local 300 serves 1,200-plus laborers throughout Vermont. The organization is part of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), which is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and represents approximately 750,000 members who work in a wide variety of fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government.

Dallas Keuchel reportedly open to one-year deal after market seemingly goes dry

first_imgDallas Keuchel is believed open to the right 1-year deal, then resetting. One under the radar team: maybe Milwaukee, which has been linked to Kimbrel and has been willing to give up draft choice at times (ie Grandal, Lohse). Phillies, Padres, Astros are among other possibilities.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) April 18, 2019MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNIf he were to sign that type of deal, he would do so planning to hit the open market again in 2020. Teams that may have interest include the Brewers, Phillies, Padres and Astros.The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, though, notes with the Brewers, the team would have to give up a third draft pick this season if it were to sign Keuchel to any kind of deal, which could eliminate them from the running.For #Brewers, it would be surrendering a third draft choice in 2019. Traded Competitive Balance Round A pick for Alex Claudio and forfeited third-rounder for signing Yasmani Grandal. https://t.co/Wez4D3ZjCT— Tom (@Haudricourt) April 18, 2019It should also be noted that Brewers general manager David Stears was the assistant general manager with the Astros in 2012 when Keuchel made his MLB debut, so he has a history with the lefty.Keuchel reportedly turned down a five-year, $90 million deal with the Astros in 2016 and changed agents in 2017 to Scott Boras.Boras is famous for having his clients go to the free-agent market to start a bidding war for his players. He did that with Bryce Harper this year and also with Eric Hosmer and J.D. Martinez in 2018.For Keuchel, it hasn’t worked out as he remains a free agent three weeks into the season.Keuchel told Houston Station Fox26 in February he wasn’t hitting the panic button and was just focused on getting himself ready for the season. Dallas Keuchel went into this offseason looking for a long-term deal, but that contract appears not to be in the cards for the Cy Young winner.The former Astros starting pitcher is now open to one-year deals at the right price, according to Fancred Sports. “I’m calm and collected outside the field,” Keuchel said. “I don’t really hit the panic button at all. I’m worried about getting myself ready and up to speed. I feel like I’m ahead of schedule compared to the last few years.”At the same time, I’d like to get out there and meet new teammates or meet old teammates. When that time comes, it’ll be nice.”last_img read more
