I'm sure you've seen regular trucks on roadways plowing snow. If you're a traveler you've maybe been stuck in an airport concourse looking out the windows as giant plows work on the tarmac, taxiways and runways to get you back home. But I doubt you've ever been up in the mountains watching how railroads keep […]
Tim Carter interviews Colin Jaffe', Behr Senior VP of Professional Sales, on February 12, 2014. The first-ever Behr Paint editors conference had just concluded and I was one of but a small handful of media invited to the event. It was one for the history books to be sure.

DEAR TIM: I’ve got a few perplexing problems at my house and have no idea how to solve them. A friend tried to change 3-way switches for me at the top and bottom of my steps and now they don’t work right. My doorbell all of a sudden stopped working. A friend at work said […]
