Additional international cargo flights stake claim to skying business at GSP
JUN 25, 2018

Senator International has increased its flights to GSP and is now flying roundtrip from Greer to Mexico to deliver more logistics.
 

Evidently the sky isn’t the limit for the ultra-modern, fast-paced passenger and cargo service at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport.

Last week’s news of Frontier Airlines adding four non-stop cities – Las Vegas, Denver, Orlando, Tampa – to GSP is already old news compared to Monday’s announcement that Senator International and GSP are increasing cargo flights to 8-10 per week. That’s an additional roundtrip flight between GSP and Querétaro Intercontinental Airport (QRO).

High tech meets low tech at Furman University solar farm
JUN 25, 2018

Local sheep owner Steve Wood with new tenants of Furman solar farm.

GREENVILLE — When Furman’s six-acre, $1.7 million solar farm was installed off Poinsett Highway last year, the project turned heads. But it’s likely to get even more attention now that 12 St. Croix sheep have moved in and will be calling the solar farm home for the foreseeable future.

 In an effort to reduce the cost of mowing under the 2,994 solar panels and to lower gas emissions, Furman partnered with local sheep owner Steve Wood to see if four ewes and their eight lambs could help solve the problem — a marriage of low and high tech and a win-win proposition as the sheep need shelter and a place to graze.

You put your business up for sale on a lark. You were just testing the market, trying to gauge the value for your small business. You hired a business broker, who said she would take ten percent (10%) and told you she could get you a value for your business that you considered a pie in the sky number.
