Economic Activity On Rise In January - For the eighth consecutive month, economic activity rose in January. New orders and production remain strong, an indication that manufacturing is experiencing a recovery. Seventeen of the twenty industries reported growth, including printing, publishing, and paper. Commodities that have gone down in price include corrugated cartons and liner board. Meanwhile, advertising revenue was up 10.4% in January compared to January 2003. Industries occupying much of the ad space were drugs and remedies, cosmetics, and home furnishings.

St. Patrick's Day Trivia - St. Patrick was born either in Scotland or Britain - not Ireland - and it is believed his birth name was Maewyn Succat. After years of enslavement in Ireland, he escaped to France and became a priest, using the name Patrick. He returned to Ireland as a missionary at 60 years of age. He died on March 17, 461 AD.
