Treat your employees right, and customers will be satisfied, too

When I started my small business, I was committed to treating my employees well.

As an employee, I’d worked for bosses who took their employees for granted, and I knew how de-motivating that could be. I knew that I didn’t want to be that kind of boss.

Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock blasts LeBron James’ parenting, compares fame thirst to cocaine

Fox Sports commentator Jason Whitlock is not a fan of LeBron James acting exuberantly at his son’s AAU basketball games. On Monday the veteran journalist compared the Los Angeles Lakers star’s parenting to LaVar Ball and correlated James’ “thirst for fame” to cocaine addiction.  

In a segment of “Speak for Yourself,” Whitlock didn’t hold back in criticizing James, who was recently seen dunking in his son Bronny’s pre-game lay-up line and cheering loudly at his son’s championship-sealing dunk.

These cities are adding the most jobs

The U.S. economy added 224,000 jobs in June 2019, far exceeding economists expectations of 140,000 new jobs. The better than expected June jobs report marks 105 consecutive months of jobs growth – the longest in U.S. history.

Over the last five years alone, overall employment in the United States climbed by 7.3%, driven in large part by massive hiring in the trade, transportation, and utility sector. Partially as a result, the unemployment rate dipped from 6.1% in May 2014, to 3.4% in May 2019 – a low not seen since the 1960s.

Historic Rural Roman Catholic Church

Historic Catholic church in Texas burns to the ground, ATF investigates

A historic 124-year-old Roman Catholic church in a rural Texas farming town that serves 244 families burned to the ground on Monday.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with the State Fire Marshal’s Office continued to sift through the rubble and investigate what sparked the fire at the Church of the Visitation in Westphalia. Investigators said there were no injuries.

Insurance adjusters estimated that the damages to the building, said to have been the largest all-wood church in the state, could reach $4 million, KWTX reported. The church was built in 1895 and included some 20 stained-glass windows that had been imported from Germany.

“I am saddened for the people of Westphalia who have suffered this tremendous loss,” Bishop Joe S. Vásquez said, according to a Facebook post by the Diocese of Austin. “I am grateful for all the firefighters and departments that responded to the fire. Please join me in keeping the people of this historic parish in your prayers today as they try to piece together this tragedy.”

The congregation had been planning a celebration for the 125th anniversary of the church, which was constructed around a Latin cross and flanked by bell towers on either side.

All that was saved as the flames consumed the structure was the tabernacle.

The church was accepting donations for rebuilding efforts.
