Moving Forward, Making a Difference

Issue 5

Chamber Auction is around the corner The Grove City Chamber of Commerce will host the Annual Chamber Auction on Saturday, Dec. 10, starting at 6 p.m. and concluding at 10:30 p.m. The event will be at the beautiful Pinnacle Golf Club, 1500 Pinnacle Drive, Grove City. Over 200 people take part in this catered event each year. Last year, the Thanksgiving-themed Auction was a great success with live music and an auction expe-

rience for a great cause. This year will differ from the last in theme and items. The theme this year is Christmas and Making a Difference. Some item categories up for bid include trips, shows and restaurants. Some of the proceeds of the Auction will benefit graduating students from SouthWestern City Schools and some will benefit the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber auction still has sponsorship opportunities available for this event. These opportunities range from half-page ads in the Auction program for Bronze level sponsors to Platinum level sponsors who get prominent displays on Advertising Board at the Auction venue. To get more information on the Annual Auction, contact the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce at (614) 875-9762.

Arts in the Alley draws large crowds The weather was beautiful, the crowds large and a record number of juried artists and crafters lined Broadway and Park streets for the 2011 Arts in the Alley. Music filled the air and concessionaires served a large variety of food specialities. The exhibition shows — Fine Arts, City Easel Award, Photography, Crafts, Youth Art and Quilts — saw record number of visitors to admire, comment and vote on the many show entries. All in all, we had everything needed for a great Arts in the Alley. For the 32nd year, the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce has brought residents and visitors to downtown Grove City. A parade hosted by the Chamber in partnership with the Grove City Girls’ Club kicked off the festivities, and this year saw a record See ARTS , page 3 (Above) A local Boy Scout troop carries a flag in the parade which started at the intersection of Broadway and Southwest Boulevard. The parade ended at Park Street Intermediate School. (Right) The event offered musical entertainment. Festivities included food, kids’ crafts, kids’ karaoke and arts exhibits. At least 40 volunteers helped to manage the event.

Don’t forget to vote Nov. 8 When heading to the polls this November, you will find three issues on the ballot. For your reference, here is a brief description of each issue. Issue One is proposed to increase, by five years, the maximum age in which a person may be elected or appointed judge. This issue also includes eliminating the authority of the General Assembly to establish courts of conciliation and to eliminate authority of the governor to appoint a Supreme Court commission. Issue Two is proposing a new law effecting government union contracts and other government employee contracts and policies. Issue Three will preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care and health care coverage. To find out additional information about each of these issues, visit the Ohio Secretary of State website at www.sos. state.oh.us.

Big things do come in small packages By MICHAEL LEACH

most vis u a l bang; place pointy ends up; water thoroughly after planting; cover with chicken wire and mulch if critters are a problem.

Just plant crocus, hyacinths, daffodils and other spring-flowering bulbs. Along comes March and up pop flowers — and hope. Success begins with a well-drained site. Bulbs die in soggy ground. Full sun is best. Bulbs, however, do beautifully under maples, oaks and other shade trees but not evergreens. Why? Deciduous trees aren’t leafy when the bulbs are busy making food in their leaves. And that brings up another essential — never remove bulb leaves until they’ve yellowed completely. To mask the foliage, which takes several weeks to do its work, plant bulbs among perennials, such as peonies and day lilies. Save work. Plant bulbs in layers in one big hole with a few inches of soil between. Big bulbs go on the bottom; mediums in the middle; and wee Michael Leach ones on top. The bulbs will grow around each other to provide weeks of nonstop color.

Tax reporting forms: 1099-MISC By ALLEN HOUK The reporting requirements for businesses to send forms 1099-MISC can be confusing, especially with recent legislation and pending legislation. The business entities that should be sending forms 1099 include individuals that prepare Schedules C, E, or F within the form 1040, and entities that file forms 1065, 1120, and 1120S. Allen Houk The types of expenses that would be reported on a form 1099-MISC would include rents, legal fees, accounting fees, professional services, services rendered by any individual that will not be reported on a form W-2, and any other payment made for goods and/or services payable to a non-corporate entity.

Safety Sense

CareWorks Consultants announce premium refunds Each year, Ohio employers have the opportunity to participate in BWC’s Group Retrospective Rating Program through CareWorks Consultants (CCI), Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce’s third-party administrator. While these programs are not required, they do provide you with an opportunity to significantly reduce your workers’compensation premiums, while increasing your awareness of safety and risk-management strategies. The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) has just processed the first 12-month refund adjustment for CareWorks Consultants’2009 Group

Retrospective Rating Program. The refund total for employers participating in the 2009 Group Retro Program is $569,568, which represents a 49.7-percent refund of the employers’ total paid standard premiums. CCI is also pleased to announce that as a result of a very selective, conser-

vative underwriting approach, the program has outperformed the initial offering of premium savings by 50 percent. Currently, CCI projects that the total three-year 2009 program refund will exceed $633,150, which is more than 55 percent of the group’s standard pre-

mium. This first 12-month refund of $455,654.50 represents 72 percent of the projected three-year refund. We are projecting an additional 19 percent, or $120,400, refund in 2012. The projected third and final 9 percent refund of $57,100 is expected to be processed in August 2013. Employers participating in the 2010 Group Retrospective Rating Program have just completed their first year. The 2010 CCI premium refund projection for commercial/retail customers is 60 percent. CCI invites Grove City Area Cham-

ber members to be evaluated for the upcoming July 1, 2012, Group Retrospective Rating Policy Year. We believe that the information above reflects the quality financial results your company can achieve by participating in one of our Group Retro Programs. For some employers, participation in group retrospective rating is more beneficial than participation in traditional group rating. For more information on CareWorks Consultants’ Group Retrospective Rating Programs for GCACC members, please contact Theresa Passwater, tollfree, at (800) 837-3200, ext 7248.

NLRB requires employers to post notice of NLRA rights The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced that effective Nov. 14, most private employers (union and non-union) will be required to notify employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The NLRB’s final rule prescribes an 11x17inch poster as the form of the notice, which will summarize employees’ rights under the NLRA. The notice must be posted and maintained in conspicuous places, including all places where notices to employees are customarily posted. The notice must also be posted on the internet or company intranet if the employer routinely communicates personnel rules or policies to employees through such means. If at least 20 percent of an employer’s workforce is not proficient in English, the employer must post the notice in the other language(s). Similar notices summarizing employees’ workplace rights are already required under other federal workplace laws. The NLRB believes that given the common practice of workplace notice-posting, this new

posting requirement for the Act will increase employees’ awareness of their rights under the NLRA. In December 2010, we alerted you to the NLRB’s proposed rule on this matter (NLRB Proposes Rule Requiring Posting of NLRA Rights, December 2010). After receiving thousands of public comments on the proposed rule, the NLRB made several revisions to the proposed rule including: • Employers will not be required to distribute the notice via email, voice mail, text messaging or related electronic communications even if they customarily communicate with their employees in that manner; and • The employee notice detailing employee rights protected by the NLRA now includes an employee’s right not to join a union and details unlawful union conduct. Also in response to comments, the NLRB acknowledged that an employer has the right, under section 8(c), to legally express its opinion regarding unionization in its workplace to

2011-2012 Grove City Community Profile, Business Directory is now available

NLRB requires employers to post notice of NLRA rights Continued from page 13 “counterbalance” the posting — as long as the opinion is expressed in a non-coercive manner. There are no record-keeping or reporting requirements and the Board cannot impose fines for failing to post the notice. However, failure to post the notice may be treated as an unfair labor practice under the NLRA. The Board has affirmatively stated that the NLRB will assume that employers failing to post the notice, in most cases, are unaware of the new rule and will comply when requested. On the other hand, if an employer knowingly and willfully fails to post the notice, the failure may be considered evidence of unlawful motive in an unfair labor practice case involving other alleged violations of the NLRA. And, if an employer has failed to post the notice, the Board may also extend the six month statute of limitations for filing a charge involving other unfair labor practice allegations. Copies of the notice will be available by Nov. 1, at no charge from the Board’s Regional Offices or can be downloaded from the NLRB’s website.
