Talar and Steve, a financial planning company based in Lakeview, has opened a branch office in downtown Salem in the building owned by the Salem Office Properties real estate company. Talar and Steve is taking over office space formerly occupied by the law offices of Lay Lawson. The space had been vacant for a year and a half. The new Talar and Steve office was open for business as of yesterday. Talar Ormond, president of Talar and Steve, says that her company chose the Salem location because of a rising demand for financial planning services in the area. "Salem is a growing community," she explained, " and the town's citizens are becoming more affluent. It is just the type of community where services such as ours are needed." Talar and Steve closed its branch offices in Johnstown and Freeburg at the end of last year. These coomunities are close enough to Lakeview to be served by the main office there, Ms. Talar explained, but having an office in Salem will facilitate expanding services to the entire eastern part of the state.

Questions 160 - 163 refer to the following letter.
To the Editor :

I read with great concern the report in your newspaper this morning about the plans of the Holbrook Manufacturing Company to build a factory in this city. The project has received strong support from the city council, based on their belief that Holbrook will bring a significant number of jobs to our area and boost the local economy. Apparently, they are blind to the reality. Holbrook is well known for its innovative manufacturing methods, which are largely automated. Because of this, very little manual labor is required. Holbrook's system generally requires highly skilled technicians, who would likely come here from other places to work at the factory. There will be few, if any, jobs for local citizens. what do we get in return for this ? A large, unsightly building that will require the destruction of natural areas and throw pollution into our air and water. The city council must approve Holbrook's project before they begin construction of the factory. Holbrook's board of directors, eager to break ground on the project as early as next month, have urged the city council to move forward with their vote, and it will take place tomorrow night rather than two weeks from now, as originally planned. This gives even less time for council members to develop an informed opinion. I strongly urge them not to bow to the pressure of Holbrook and to vote against the proposed project.

Sincerely,

Hadon Karen

Hi Peter,

I will be flying to San Francisco to attend the Business Association Conference next Friday, and I understand you will be there, too. I was hoping we could have a chance to meet sometime during the day Friday for about 30 minutes. I think we should take the opportunity to go over the project in person. Let me know when would be a good time for you. I will be giving  a workshop on business law, but other than that my schedule is flexible. Anytime before 6:00 would work for me. I can't stay later than that since I'm driving to Sacramento in the evening and don't want to arrive there too late. A colleague will be singing his book at a store there,and I want to attend. I'm looking forward to your presentation on contracts. I wouldn't miss that for anything. Perhaps we could have our meeting immediately afterward. Let me know what works best for you.

Donie Maddox
Director of Marketing
The Golda Company
1809 Lyme Road
Newland, IL

Dear Mr. Maddox,

I have heard that there is an opening for a researcher in the Marketing Department, and my supervisor, Maida Parson, suggested that I contact you about applying for it. I have worked at Golda for three years now as an office assistant in the Accounting Department. I previously worked for a year at a small marketing firm called R-J Associates. That is the only marketing job experience I have, but I have a degree in marketing, which I completed last month. Now I would like to get a position in my field. Through my years working at Golda, I have become quite familiar with the way this company works, and i fell that I would have a great deal to offer Golda's Marketing Department.

I am enclosing my résumé and could also provide you with letters of reference from my university professors. Thank you for your attention. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Kath

Thank you for your letter expressing interest in applying for the position in the Marketing Department. I have spoken with Ms. Parson, who highly recommends you for the job. I have also shown your credentials to our head researcher, and we both agree that you would be a good asset to our department. Unfortunately, the position you are interested in is not an entrylevel job. We generally require at least twice the amount of marketing job experience that you have, as a minimum, for that type of position. Although you appear to have a good reference from your former employer, we feel that you are not yet qualified for the job. However, I anticipate that we will have an opening for a marketing assistant, possibly as soon as September. I will let you know when that position becomes available in case you might please accept my best wishes for your continued success.

I have heard that there is an opening for a researcher in the Marketing Department, and my supervisor, Maida Parson, suggested that I contact you about applying for it. I have worked at Golda for three years now as an office assistant in the Accounting Department. I previously worked for a year at a small marketing firm called R-J Associates. That is the only marketing job experience I have, but I have a degree in marketing, which I completed last month. Now I would like to get a position in my field. Through my years working at Golda, I have become quite familiar with the way this company works, and i fell that I would have a great deal to offer Golda's Marketing Department.

I am enclosing my résumé and could also provide you with letters of reference from my university professors. Thank you for your attention. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Sharin Kath

Dear Ms. Kath

Thank you for your letter expressing interest in applying for the position in the Marketing Department. I have spoken with Ms. Parson, who highly recommends you for the job. I have also shown your credentials to our head researcher, and we both agree that you would be a good asset to our department. Unfortunately, the position you are interested in is not an entrylevel job. We generally require at least twice the amount of marketing job experience that you have, as a minimum, for that type of position. Although you appear to have a good reference from your former employer, we feel that you are not yet qualified for the job. However, I anticipate that we will have an opening for a marketing assistant, possibly as soon as September. I will let you know when that position becomes available in case you might please accept my best wishes for your continued success.

Sincerely,

Donie Maddox
Director of Marketing

Re : Workplace safety workshop

This workshop is required for all department heads and recommended for all staff members. Please let me know before November 22 if you plan to attend.

Subject : safety workshopHi, Mason,
I am very much interested in next month's workshop on workplace safety that was mentioned in the memo you sent out yesterday. I would like to attend it, so please put me on the list. After this workshop, I will have fulfilled my attendance requirement for this year. I would like you to know that I have found each workshop I attended to be very informative and worthwhile. Also, I would like to apologize in advance because I will probably arrive about 15 minutes late to the workplace safety workshop. I have to be downtown early that morning for a breakfast meeting, but it shouldn't last much past 9 : 00, and then I can catch the subway to the office. I hope a slightly late arrival won't be a problem.Thanks.Synne

Dear Customer Service,

I was excited about my recent purchase of a Paper Moon 2002 Deluxe Office Paper Shredder. Many sensitive financial reports come through my office, so reliable and durable paper shredder is a necessity for me. I chose the Paper Moon 2002 Deluxe because I read many good reviews of it online and in consumer magazines. At first it lived up to its reputation, shredding large volumes of paper without a glitch. At one point, I even spilled a box of paper clips into it, but that didn't appear to slow it down. Then last week it completely stopped, and I have not been able to get it going again. I have to say I am not pleased about this at all. I have owned this machine only since the beginning of February. I would expect that a machine with such a good reputation would last a good deal longer. I am returning the machine herewith, wrapped up in a brand new box. The receipt, including place and date of purchase and the machine's model number, are enclosed. Please send me my refund as soon as possible. Thank you.

Sincerely,
