Manufacturers can get free online assessment of their efficiency

Manufacturing companies can now figure out how efficient their operations are by taking a free assessment test online. The Delaware Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a federally funded organization that specializes in working with small and medium-sized manufacturers, has added a three-part assessment section to its Web site - www.demep.org - to assist the more than 1,000 manufacturers in the state. By taking the test, manufacturers will be able to identify specific areas where they can improve operations, such as on-time delivery, inventory turnover and quality checks. The organization also offers classes at a discounted rate for manufacturers.

WSFS Bank will honor off-duty cop who foiled a robbery in February

WSFS Bank plans to honor an off-duty New Castle County policeman who foiled a bank robbery in February at the WSFS branch at 3202 Kirkwood Highway. At a ceremony today at the Bank One Center on the Riverfront, the bank's president, Marvin "Skip" Schoenhals, is scheduled to present Patrolman Joseph Rago with a plaque honoring him for "outstanding conduct." On Feb. 10, Rago tackled a bank robber as he emerged from the WSFS branch at the Prices Corner Shopping Center. WSFS also plans to make a contribution of $1,000 to the Police Athletic League of Delaware in recognition of Rago's work, bank spokeswoman Joan Sullivan said. She said the bank last gave a similar honor in 1998, when it recognized an off-duty Wilmington police officer, a Wilmington firefighter and a retired Wilmington firefighter for their efforts in stopping a robbery at a WSFS branch on Union Street in Wilmington.

Author and Wilmington native in town to promote his latest book

Clyde Prestowitz, a former Reagan administration official and president of the Washington, D.C.-based Economic Strategy Institute, was in Wilmington earlier this week discussing his latest book, "Three Billion New Capitalists: The Great Shift of Wealth and Power to the East." Prestowitz, who grew up in Wilmington and lives in Maryland, writes about the economic challenges facing this country and analyzes the powerful trends that are converging to shift wealth and power to Asia and away from the West. Prestowitz also is the author of "Rogue Nation: American Unilateralism and the Failure of Good Intentions" (2003) and of a book on U.S.-Japan relations titled "Trading Places" (1989).
