Romain to Lead 2013 Higher Education Capital Campaign

Ronald Romain, CEO of United Companies in Evansville, Indiana, recently announced his involvement in the University of Southern Indiana Capital Campaign by serving as Campaign Chairman. With his on-going interest in public education, Mr. Romain agreed to spearhead the financial challenge of raising $50,000,000 to help further educational opportunities at USI.

Ronald and Connie Romain jointly have pledged their personal financial commitment in hopes of stimulating additional donations from other individuals. Because of the Romains’ support, the University has announced the naming of the College of Business in the family name.

“Connie and I remain devoted to the importance of higher education. Both of us benefited from our experiences in the public school system, especially at USI. I know our college education would likely not have been possible were it not for USI in our community. What so many individuals sacrificed for us now require our family to give back and create educational opportunities for others.”

2012 Chevrolet Sonic

Article from Road & Track: It would seem the era of the proper small car is here. Mind you, companies like Honda and Mazda have been doing it right for years, but for many automakers the words “small cars” and the “U.S.” just didn’t jibe.

There have been small cars, but it’s the word “proper” that makes the difference. As an example, the Chevrolet Chevette of many years ago was a solid and reliable little machine, but about as much fun and as interesting as a canker sore.

So when Chevrolet gave us a chance as the first journalists to drive the new Sonic, we had our doubts.

Not anymore.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

The people at, wrote up a review of the 2011 Chevy Cruze, here’s a sample of their article.

“The new Chevy Cruze offers up impressive handling, excellent fuel economy and class-leading safety measures — all for a low price tag. It’s not often that General Motors markets a car in other countries before letting U.S. drivers behind the wheel, but that’s exactly what the company did with the all-new Cruze. That the Cruze has sold around 250,000 units in over 60 markets around the world should be enough to tell you that it’s a pretty good compact car. For the U.S., the Cruze will come equipped with a pair of inline-4 powerplants. The base model, priced at $16,995, will come with a naturally aspirated 1.8-liter inline-4, while the high trim levels will get a turbocharged 1.4-liter variant.”
