Father's Day is This Sunday, and The Green Bay News Network wishes a Very Happy Father's Day Weekend to all Fathers among our Members and Readers!
Fathers are just WONDERFUL
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...
From "Fathers are Wonderful People," by Helen Steiner Rice
In honor of this holiday, we'd like to share with you a bit of its history:
On July 5th, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation’s first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday.
The next year, a Spokane, Washington, woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation’s first statewide Father’s Day on June 19, 1910.
Slowly, the holiday spread. In 1916, President Wilson honored the day by using telegraph signals to unfurl a flag in Spokane when he pressed a button in Washington, D.C. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge urged state governments to observe Father’s Day.
Today, the day honoring fathers is celebrated in the United States on the third Sunday of June.

Bart Starr’s legendary career featured many thrilling game winning drives, yet it’s quite possible that his most memorable “drive” came courtesy of the Chevrolet Motor Division on Friday, February 3rd, 1967.
On that cold winter day in New York City, SPORT Magazine presented Starr with the keys to a brand new 1967 Corvette Sting Ray as his reward for being named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl I.
Having spent most of the last 51 years far from the public eye, this iconic piece of Packers’ history has returned home to Green Bay and is now on display at The Automobile Gallery courtesy of new owner Steve Altieri.
Gallery Founder Red Lewis is excited to share this rare jewel with fans from all over the U.S., “We’re just thrilled that Mr. Altieri has chosen the Automobile Gallery to showcase his great piece of history. To witness an original vehicle that proudly wears every wrinkle of its life is a rare opportunity.”
Just as Bart Starr’s performance in Super Bowl I made history, his 1967 Corvette Sting Ray preserves it. Witness this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity today at The Automobile Gallery.
The Automobile Gallery, located at 400 South Adams Street in Green Bay, is open daily from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm to the general public unless a special event is scheduled. It's always a good idea to call before visiting to check on the schedule.
You can visit The Automobile Gallery on the Web, give them a call at 920.437.9024, or just stop in downtown and say hello!

This week, Craig Siminski, of the Equity Design Group, shares with us a timely article discussing large wage increases vs. steady and moderate wage growth:
In April 2018, average hourly earnings for private-sector U.S. workers grew at a 2.6% annual rate, and “real” wage growth (adjusted for inflation) increased just 0.2% year over year. The unemployment rate fell to 3.9% in the same month, a 17-year low that leaves many people wondering why workers are not seeing corresponding wage increases.
Wage gains usually go hand in hand with low unemployment, primarily because employers must often raise pay to keep valuable employees and compete for new workers. For example, the last time unemployment fell below 4.0% was in December 2000, when wages were growing at a brisk 4.3%.
An April 2018 survey of leading economists conducted by The Wall Street Journal identified three major factors contributing to slower wage growth: globalization, demographic changes, and low productivity growth.
Here’s a closer look at how these forces could be restraining workers’ wages...
