job growth or a measurable decrease in unemployment. No, this is about fishing industry entrepreneur Keith Kessler and his company “Aquateko” actually improving product quality while simultaneously giving back. Previously, Kessler’s technologically advanced “InvisaSwivel” and “Knot2Kinky” products were wholly produced and or packaged in Taiwan. During Kessler’s quest to return manufacturing to its native land, he happened into a Jacksonville outfit called Pine Castle. The philanthropic company’s mission is to manufacture at a high level while using a workforce of physically challenged adults. And that they do. Gained is quality control and on time delivery not to mention job creation for citizens who often struggle to join traditional workforces. “These guys have been all over it,” said Kessler. “They’ve been phenomenal. I can’t tell you how happy I am. I’ve had zero complaints from any of my customers about quality. In fact, quite the opposite is true – Aquateko products have improved since I partnered with Pine Castle.”

by S. Aaron Shamshoyan A successful trivia night was held at the Boys and Girls Club last week as eighteen teems competed for a $600 cash prize. The two-hour event run by Stump Trivia featured entertainment and sports questions among others with one question being the longest running television series still seen today. Taking home the win, team Rotary Gold from the Greater Salem Rotary Club had the most points by the end. Rotary members Peter Rayno, Laura Scott, John Moynihan, and Joanna Ransley choose to donate half their winnings to the Boys and Girls club and the rest to the Rotary Club.
Special Events Coordinator Denise Dolloff was thrilled with the. “Trivia night was a great success. We had over 100 participants and we look forward hosting another in the future.” The event raised close to $3,000 for the club she said. Sonny Tylus from the BNI Geniuses had a great time. “We may not have been the winning team, but we were the most fun team,” he said.
