Littler Mendelson opens Orlando office

A labor-and-employment law specialist, Littler Mendelson, has opened a shop in Orlando with six new attorneys. This makes it the 43rd nationwide office and second in Florida after Miami for this prominent national firm. The six new attorneys come to the firm from Fisher & Phillips and started work from June 1. The firm's new office will be managed by Carlos Burruezo, an experienced trial lawyer, as the managing shareholder. Marko Mrkonich, the president of Littler Mendelson, said that the new location would help the firm to "provide Orlando employers with practical solutions to their workplace issues." The firm also hopes to leverage on the expertise, experience, and reach of the locally placed group of attorneys. Established in 1942, Littler Mendelson has more than 600 attorneys working in 43 offices in major metropolitan areas nationwide. The firm is dedicated exclusively to representing management in employment, employee benefits, and labor law matters.

Vandervoort partners Tibbits for "Can-Can"
What do attorneys do when they don't don the mantel of lawyers? They form alliances with local firms of varied hues to bring color to areas they work for. In a similar attempt, the law firm of Vandervoort, Christ and Fisher, P.C., is teaming with Tibbits Opera House by sponsoring the eighth Tibbits Summer Theatre's production of "Can-Can." The show on June 28 marks the opening of the 2007 professional season. Established in 1943 by Millard Vandervoort, the full service law firm located in Coldwater and Battle Creek has provided high-quality general practice legal services on a wide range of business and estate planning matters. The firm's Coldwater doors opened in 1999 offering services in more than 13 practice areas. This alliance with Tibbits, which began in 2000 by sponsoring "The Man Who Came To Dinner," continues to exhibit the law firm's commitment to arts and the community.

Founded in 1882, Tibbits Opera House is one of the oldest theatres in Michigan. It offers excellent acoustics, an intimate 500-seat setting, and a variety of quality performances year round. Can-Can is a story set in the 1890's Paris. Pistache, a dance hall owner, together with connivance of a local law enforcement bypasses a ban on a dance where women shamefully lift their skirts, the 'can can.' This, however, could continue until a new judge set foot in the town. The show runs from June 28 through July 7.


Student teaches school teachers a lesson on potable water!
Oregon student finds school's toilet water cleaner than fountain's

The ban on bottled water inside the classroom prompted this smart middle school student at Oregon Coast Technology School become an innovative teacher. His lessons left many of his classmates, teachers, administrators, and board members bright and intelligent with bacteria knowledge. What was a hunch for Kyleray Katherman, 13, turned out to be a nightmare of ground realities for the authorities to discover that bacteria swarmed the school's drinking fountain water! In fact, it was the toilet water that was the purest within the premises. Katherman used Q-tips and Petri dishes, swabbing the spigots of four fountains and a toilet. He dipped the cotton in the center and then dragged it around the rim for a foolproof sample. The cotton was then put under light in the lab for bacteria to grow. And boy, did they grow! The Petri dishes containing fountain water — all four of them-were swarmed with bacteria! The only saving grace was the Petri dish with toilet water. Reason? Perhaps the cleansing chemicals used daily while cleaning these toilets did the job. Result: the authorities, egg-on-face, hurriedly replaced the spigots and casing at three of the water fountains and also gave them a thorough cleaning. All's well that ends well...well almost. The ban on bottled water stays! "It was a great lesson," said Scott Edmondson, the school's principal.
