ROBERT A. CURRY SR OWNER, CALIFORNIA CARTAGE

Bob Curry joined California Cartage Company on a full time basis in 1954 after serving a tour of duty in the Air Force. During the next 26 years he held many jobs in the company culminating in 1980 with the Presidency – the title he holds today.
California Cartage is a privately held company founded in 1944 by Bob Curry’s father. They are an industry leader in trucking, warehousing and deconsolidation. They own and operate eight logistics companies with a fleet of over 1200 owner operators and 3.5 million square feet of warehouse space. Their operations are spread throughout 9 states and Mexico.
Mr. Curry embraced the Clean Truck Program of the Ports of LongBeach and Los Angeles, choosing in his words to become part of the solution. His companies now use over 700 clean trucks driven by independent owner operators. He has clean diesel, LNG, and CNG natural gas vehicles in the fleet and is planning on testing battery operated tractors. In 2010 the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce named Robert Curry “Entrepreneur of the Year” for his leadership and vision.

Learn to grow fish and plants together

Special to The Monitor
KAUFMAN–Kaufman County Master Gardeners present their Spring Seminar “Aquaponics: Growing Fish and Plants Together” at 9 a.m. Saturday Feb. 28, at Grace Fellowship Church in Oak Grove.
Aquaponics is a soil-free, herbicide-free, pesticide-free method for producing naturally-grown, healthy, fresh vegetables and fish locally.
While aquaponics is not really new, it is enjoying a resurgence of interest. Both commercial growers and home gardeners are attracted to aquaponics because it requires less space, only 5 percent water and up to 70 percent less energy than conventional gardens.
In addition, yields are higher and growing time is shorter.
Bay City Texas AgriLife Extension Center Extension Fisheries Program Specialist Peter Woods will discuss the difference between aqua- and hydroponics, the basic concepts of aquaponics, suitable plants and fish, and examples of some commercial operations.
Green Phoenix Farms in Mansfield Adam Cohen will discuss aquaponic systems suitable for the backyard gardener.
Grace Fellowship Church is located at 7650 FM 1388 in Oak Grove.

The Richest Cities for Young People: 1980 vs. Today

History often intervenes with extrapolated trends, making it hard to predict what the best cities for young people will be in the future.

"One theory for why rich cities tend to get richer is "cumulative advantage," which is more commonly known as the rich-get-richer principle. The idea is that cities with thriving industries (consulting in Boston; software in San Jose; commodities in Chicago) attract the smartest workers, whose talents add to the success of those industries, redoubling their ability to attract the smartest workers. Talent attracts talent. Business attracts business. A growing tax base supports better schools, nicer parks, and safer neighborhoods. Economic growth thrives on a feedback loop that, from a certain angle, appears to be infinite and unbreakable. In short: The rich get richer, forever."

"Today, the ten cities in the country with the highest median income for young people are, in order":....... READ MORE

"Cumulative advantage, 
history has a way of intervening with such crudely extrapolated trends. Five of the ten richest cities from 33 years ago have seen median wages for young people fall by at least 15 percent. The turnover rate of the list is 50 percent. So, yes, cumulative advantage is strong, and rich cities often get richer. But technology, globalization, and the availability of affordable housing and transportation all exert their own gravity. Extrapolating the present forward isn't the same thing as knowing the future.
