Snow Removal Crew
Anytime a snow hits here in Greece, there is a lot of work that has to be completed to get our lot back in shape. We have an amazing crew of employees who come in each time and consistently get to work clearing the lot. They get the snow plows going and they clear all the entrances to the building. All the cars have to be brushed off and then moved so that the entire lot can be plowed. It takes time and patience but they get it handled each and every time. Their dedication keeps our customers as well as our team members from trudging through the snow to get into our building or to go to their cars. We would like to give a SPECIAL THANKS to our crew that is out there every single time the big snow hits whether the temperature is 30 degrees or negative 10.

Izzy Burgado, Max Harrington, Jake Hoyt, Vern Hubright,

Patrick McTammany, Steven Pecora, Chuck Seltenreich & Jeff Sinski

We would also like to thank others who pitch in and help when they can. It takes a lot of Ralph Team Members to keep this lot in shape and their help is very much appreciated.

Your Tires Are Talking:

Using your vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System

What to do if the low tire pressure indicator comes on:

– Stop and check your tires as soon as it is safe to do so. Refer to your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual for proper procedure on checking tires.

– If a tire is flat, damaged, or the pressure is too low to continue driving, refer to your Owner’s Manual for the proper procedure on using the spare or the Tire Repair Kit (TRK), or call for roadside assistance.

Note: TPMS does not monitor spare tire pressure. Make sure your spare tire is properly inflated, and visually inspect it before use.

– Inflate all tires to the recommended cold pressure, as indicated on the driver’s doorjamb tire pressure label.

– Also, remember to initiate the calibration sequence for indirect systems after inflating the tires. The low tire pressure indicator may remain on until the car is driven a short distance. If the indicator appears again after setting all the tires to the recommended pressure (and calibrating the indirect system), one of the tires may have a slow leak. Determine if the same tire is repeatedly low on pressure, and have it inspected and repaired as needed. For more information about the low tire pressure indicator, please refer to your vehicle’s owner manual.

Make a Healthy Start to the New Year
Stand up for the health of it

Most of us sit – a lot. Unfortunately, our daily lives require it. We sit during commutes, while at work, and when at home. Even if we get the recommended 30 minutes of daily exercise, we spend a majority of the rest of our days sitting.

The American Medical Association states that sitting for extended periods can be bad for personal health. Think about times when you could stand or move instead of sit.

Work-related opportunities

– Walk more at work: Park your car farther from your building; use stairs instead of

elevators; take a long route to the restroom or mail room.

– While computing at your desk, set a timer to remind you to stand and stretch every half


– Stand when on the phone.

– Don’t send e-mails if recipients are near; walk over and talk to them.

Personal-time opportunities

– When watching TV, get up and change channels

– Stand or exercise while watching TV, or stand and move during commercial breaks

– During gaming (e.g., online gaming such as Farm Ville or using a system such as Wii or

PlayStation), stand between sessions and screen loads.
