(5/29/13) NOTICE - From Fran Bihm
I wanted to let you and the SBA members know personally that effective with tomorrow's edition of The Scott Connection (May 29th) it will be our FINAL EDITION.
The announcement and my article is in the paper. It is a very sad day for me to see the newspaper that I help start for Scott close, but due to circumstances beyond my control, the decision had to be made.
I want all the SBA members to know how much I love each one of you, and I would like to continue my association with you even though I can't represent the Connection anymore. If this is not possible, then I fully understand.
Also, THE SCOTT BUSINESS DIRECTORY WILL BE COMPLETED BY ME AS PROMISED..WITH THE ADS ALREADY AT HULCO, AND WE JUST HAVE A FEW MORE THINGS TO DO BEFORE PUBLICATION. I WILL DEFINITELY KEEP YOU INFORMED ON THIS PROJECT.
I will continue to support and SHOP SCOTT..because you are my dearest friends. I am just so very sorry that I will not be able to "share your good news" with a weekly newspaper...but please keep me on your email list, and I'll try my very best to see you as often as I can.
I'm going to take June and July off to have my much needed eye cataract surgery, and go visit my sister in Alabama. After that, I will let the good Lord lead me into the next chapter of my life.
Love to all,

(1/4/13) City of Scott Business Directory
As chairman for the new "Scott Business Association and City of Scott Business Directory" that is presently being formatted for the new future in 2013, I wish to again invite you to take advantage of having your business being included with an affordable ad that will showcase your business in the Directory. This new Business Directory is a project of the SBA Business Development committee. Plans are to publish 5,000 copes and distribute at locations throughout Scott. The advertising purchased, must pay for the cost of production, since this project is NOT a fund-raiser for SBA. So far, I have 27 businesses committed with advertising, which equates to about half of what the cost of production will be. Although being very appreciative to those who have already responded, I feel there are many more SBA and Scott Businesses who should be included.
THIS IS YOUR DIRECTORY!
Therefore, I am urging any SBA member and Scott Business who have not yet responded, please do so immediately. A deadline will have to be set shortly to stop taking ads, so that the production deadlines with Hulco Printers have to be met. Remember, all ads must be paid with order, and checks must be made payable to SCOTT BUSINESS ASSOCIATION, AND MAILED TO
P. O. BOX 533, SCOTT 70583.
If you have not kept the last email with sizes and prices included, contact me by email @ email@example.com, and I will send you another. Or you may call or text me on my cell at 337-581-0840, with your fax or email contact information, and I’ll get back to you.
