Garrett Yrigoyen Bio: California native, Garrett Yrigoyen, discovered his love for the great outdoors as a young boy when his parents would take his family on camping trips in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains. It was there, at the age of 4, where his addiction to reel-in fish began. A handful of years later, Garrett began hunting dove and pheasant in the very fields that his father farmed. For a number of years education and sports took precedence over the opportunity to hunt and fish. In 2007 he was the male senior all-around athlete for Sierra High School in Manteca, CA. In junior college, he started at third base for the San Joaquin Delta College Mustangs baseball team who placed second at the California state championship. He then moved on to the University of Nevada Reno where he obtained a degree while starting each year at third base for the Wolfpack baseball team. While living in Nevada, he developed a passion for hunting chukar high up in the mountains and fly fishing on local rivers, streams, and lakes chasing rainbow, brown, golden and Lahontan cutthroat trout. He was the last man standing on Season 14 of ABC’s the Bachelorette with Becca Kufrin and is now pursing his passion for fishing and hunting with us at Gage Outdoor.

Lynette R. Monzo of Monzo HVAC Consulting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 / — Energy efficiency is all about doing things better, smarter and faster, identifying ways to save money by being less wasteful with the energy we consume.

Lynette R. Monzo is the founder of Monzo HVAC Consulting, which specializes in energy efficiency. Monzo HVAC Consulting helps property managers and owners run buildings more efficiently; it’s greener for the world and more green in your wallet.

“Controlling HVAC equipment saves you energy, which in turn saves you money through your energy bills,” says Monzo.

Monzo works primarily with hotels, restaurants, and commercial buildings with multiple tenants, monitoring and controlling HVAC units remotely to run only when they should run and how much energy to expend based on what the tenants’ needs are. Why run a fan all day if someone is not using the space all day?

Monzo can even monitor to see what opportunities exist for further efficiency.

“If there's an issue with the unit they can either make adjustments, or we can catch it before a major failure happens if we're monitoring the building,” says Monzo. “By adjusting the HVAC to run according to the tenant's needs, they end up saving electricity, so their electric bill goes way down. We have multiple customers who have saved $100,000 in one month.” This was also after a major controls upgrade, but the savings vary according to each building.

Though the consultancy has only been independent for two years, Monzo and her husband have worked in the industry for over 25 years, earning a stellar reputation in the process. The strength of their relationships with their customers have allowed Monzo HVAC Consulting to enjoy success very quickly. They plan to expand beyond California to other states.

“We've been in the business for a long time before striking out on our own two years ago,” says Monzo. “Our customers knew our ethics, liked how we worked because we found these opportunities while we were servicing their HVAC Units. Customers are with us because of us, because of our team, because we care about the customer.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Lynette R. Monzo in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on December 14th at 4pm EST and with Jim Masters on December 21st at 4pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Attorney Profile of William B Blanchard

The economic pressure is on to transfer more and more legal work assignments to Paralegals to keep a law firm competitive, explains William Blanchard, Esq.

William B. Blanchard, Attorney at Law (N/A:N/A)

The reality today is that a large part of client interactions is handled by Paralegals, such as gathering necessary information, drafting forms, … and providing answers to questions”

— William "Bill" Blanchard, Real Estate Lawyer

ST. CHARLES, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 / — As William B. Blanchard explains in his new article series, Paralegals are gradually taking on more and more tasks that in the past were handled exclusively by Attorneys. The beneficiaries of this evolution are primarily the clients because of lower costs and easier access to information. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Blanchard at

The Paralegal (or Legal Assistant) has evolved into a critical component of the modern law office. Today, most law firms and businesses with legal departments could not function without them. In fact, it seems that Paralegals already handle most of the day-to-day routine legal support, including gathering information from clients. However, there have been some dramatic changes since the 1990s in the way Attorneys and Paralegals work. In fact, the economic pressure is on to transfer more and more legal work assignments to Paralegal to keep a law firm or other business competitive.

In his new four-part article, William Blanchard reviews how Paralegals are used in a law office or business setting today, how work assignments are divided up between Attorneys and Paralegals, and what ethical requirements apply. In adapting to today’s economic reality, the likely beneficiary of the emerging trend is the client because of reduced

The general job description for Paralegals may seem rather mundane: “Assist lawyers by investigating facts, preparing legal documents, or researching legal precedent. Conduct research to support a legal proceeding, to formulate a defense, or to initiate legal action.” (see O*NET, below). In fact, as discussed below, it is a hands-on job of increasing importance as law firms and businesses are under pressure to reduce costs in a competitive economy.

Paralegal work now requires extensive use of Technology Skills, such as:

* Analytical or scientific software — Office software; LexisNexis, CourtLink; Strategic Profiles; Uniscribe; Wilson's
Computer Applications; RealEasy Appraisals
* Database user interface and query software — Data entry software; Microsoft Access; Relativity e-Discovery; TrialWorks
* Desktop publishing software — Digital contract software; Microsoft Publisher; ProForce; Paralegal Pro-Pack; Sure Will Writer
* Document management software — Adobe Systems Adobe Acrobat; CaseSoft DepPrep; PDF; Snake Easy Bates; Summation Blaze
* Information retrieval or search software — American LegalNet USCourtForms; LexisNexis; Thomson West FindLaw; Westlaw Real Property Deed

The detailed Work Activities, however, have remained largely the same and involve:
* Maintain the order of legal documents.
* Prepare legal documents.
* Research relevant legal materials to aid decision making.
* Confer with court staff to clarify information.
* Meet with individuals involved in legal processes to provide information and clarify issues.

The reality today is that a large part of client interactions is handled by Paralegals, such as gathering necessary information, drafting forms, applications and pleadings, and providing answers to questions about the contents of the client file and missing documents. Thus, Paralegal work is not quite as mundane as it appears from the O*NET description. In fact, most of the colorful day-to-day client interactions are presumably handled by Paralegals (subject to ethical rules as discussed below).

One thing has continued unchanged; Paralegals provide essential support to Attorneys, as well as assist in the production and delivery of legal services to the modern client. This “go between client and attorney” career began to develop in the late 1960's when law firms and individual law practitioners sought ways to not only to improve efficiency, but also to reduce costs and expenses – expenses that could be passed along to the client over the course of legal representation. Still, the beneficiary has been the Client because such support work is billed at a much lower rate, and Paralegals tend to be much more accessible than Attorneys with their hectic, deadline-driven schedule. Thus, there is a benefit to both the law firm and the client – Paralegals are able and qualified to perform many services that reduce Attorney time spent on a particular legal matter, thus again resulting in a lower cost to the client. The use of Paralegal services also greatly improves case efficiency and accuracy as the Attorney is now free to spend more time on the more vital aspects of the client’s case. In many cases, work is prepared or drafted by a Paralegal and then reviewed and finalized by an Attorney. This process in many instances provides “a second set of eyes” to check the work product. However, there are ethical restrictions so that the Paralegal does not dispense legal advice and acts like an attorney, even though the boundaries are becoming blurry, explains Mr. Blanchard.

The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Blanchard at

We want families to experience the many Leesburg traditions from the past that have made Leesburg so unique. And, how more unique can you get than Santa arriving by helicopter?”

— Brian Cullen, President, Keane Enterprises

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 / — It wasn’t considered officially the holiday season in Leesburg, VA until children witnessed Santa Claus flying around Leesburg wishing everyone a Happy Holidays and eventually landing at the Virginia Village Shopping Center on Catoctin Circle in Leesburg. This long-standing tradition started with WAGE Radio (1200AM) in the 1960s. However, this tradition ended long before the radio station officially closed its doors in 2008.

“We want families to experience the many Leesburg traditions from the past that have made Leesburg so unique. And, how more unique can you get than Santa arriving by helicopter? We brought back this tradition last year and it was a huge success. Children, young and old, lit up with joy as Santa landed to the roar of his adoring fans. That’s the sense of joy we want to bring to families and to the Virginia Village Shopping Center,” stated Cullen.

LunarGlo® solar powered porta-john lights credited with big boost in J&K Septic revenue; ease of installation and strong warranty

Many of our LunarGlo customers are on Preferred Vendor lists which virtually eliminates competition from other ‘non-lit’ portable suppliers.”

Another LunarGlo® customer, AAA Porta Serve of High Springs, Florida added that “The lights not only provide a more comfortable environment for our customers, but lit toilets are much easier to clean due to the customers being able to see at night. Our team services units more quickly, everyone benefits from increased cleanliness and the lights are a great surprise for those “dreading” having to use a portable restroom at night.”

Rex Barton, the company’s co-founder added, “Many of our LunarGlo customers are on Preferred Vendor lists which virtually eliminates competition from other ‘non-lit’ portable suppliers.”

Gabbidon Builders: Patriot Builder Works on Projects Ranging from Commercial to Top Secret

Gabbidon Builders

Despite the challenges of construction work, Gabbidon Builders has figured out the secret to finding success across the industry.

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 / — Leonard Gabbidon founded Gabbidon Builders over three decades ago. Now, Gabbidon is Owner/President of his multi-million-dollar construction business and is thankful for the opportunities he and his company are frequently awarded. Of course, high profile projects do not simply fall onto a random construction company’s docket. Rather, Gabbidon Builders has worked every moment of the last thirty-two years, ensuring the company’s name is synonymous with quality. Throughout that time, Gabbidon Builders became NASCLA-certified in multiple states. Currently, the company holds licenses in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama.

Recently, Leonard Gabbidon and the rest of his Gabbidon Builders crew has been introduced to a new clientele dynamic. Now, Gabbidon has diversified his business effectively, resulting in projects ranging from commercial contracts to military operations. Here are a few of the premier projects that Gabbidon Builders can accept credit for building:


Most of the construction Gabbidon has worked on is commercial. Specifically, Gabbidon Builders completed Hotel Construction projects. This has always been interesting for Leonard Gabbidon and he has plenty of favorites. Some of the most interesting hotel projects include Candlewood Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton Homewood Suites, and Country Inn and Suites. There is a specific personality that must be captured within the walls of each hotel. Gabbidon enjoys learning what that personality is and emulating it throughout the new creation.


The residential area is where Gabbidon Builders gets to use a little creativity. Throughout the lifespan of the business, Gabbidon Builders has constructed three luxury homes in the Stallworth Community of Charlotte, North Carolina. Plus, the company has had the ability to build another eight luxury homes in the Ashley Place Community of Columbia, South Carolina. These are both extremely affluent areas, with lavish taste. Therefore, the projects were both creative and precise. However, Gabbidon’s team was able to construct the homes with ease, showcasing the kind of uniqueness that the clients sought.

Military Missions

When it comes to working with the government, especially the military, the expectations, and qualifications are exceptionally high. Additionally, the expectation for secrecy is always looming. Therefore, Gabbidon Builders has only a limited amount of information that it is acceptable to provide. Nevertheless, Gabbidon Builders have had the pleasure of landing several million-dollar projects throughout Fort Jackson in South Carolina. This state is also where the company first started. Thus, Gabbidon was well-known in the area.

From Fort Jackson, the company has had the ability to move up in clearance. Most recently, Gabbidon Builders has become busy with highly classified projects.

In summation, Gabbidon Builders has worked diligently to provide a reliable construction business and their hard work has paid off. Owner and President, Leonard Gabbidon is proud to be a successful business owner. For this construction worker, there is no greater pleasure than to be able to do what he loves, every day. Being so appreciated, though, is more than he could ever ask for and Gabbidon is forever grateful.

How do I Know What my Workers’ Compensation Settlement Covers?

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Your Montgomery County Workers’ Compensation Law Firm

When you contact our law firm, you can count on an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to treat you like family. ”

— Kenneth Saffren, Esq.

JENKINTOWN, PA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 / — +

At Saffren and Weinberg, Marc Alan Weinberg, Attorney and Kenneth Scott Saffren, Attorney are partners. The firm’s tagline is “The People’s Voice In Court.” They make themselves available via phone at (215) 309-9577 or by email on the Saffren and Weinberg website. Saffren and Weinberg provides a no-charge, complimentary case review and answers questions for prospective clients.

Your Montgomery County Workers’ Compensation Law Firm
Workers’ Compensation or Workman’s Comp. These words don’t mean anything until you or a loved one is hurt on the job. However, these words mean a great deal to insurance companies because they try to ignore them when a worker’s compensation claim has been filed. There are more terms that an insurance company will use to confuse you and reduce your settlement value. This is why it is crucial that you seek a workers’ compensation law firm, such as Saffren & Weinberg. When you contact our law firm, you can count on an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to treat you like family. This means we don’t treat your workers’ compensation case like any regular case; we use the latest practices to get you the most workers’ compensation settlement. We will explain all the tricks and terminology the attorneys from the insurance company will use. We also explain a comp claim, including:

Medical Benefits
Disability Benefits
Types of Settlements
Settlement agreement
Weekly Benefits
Wage Loss
Lump sum Payment or Settlement

We don’t ever want our clients to feel overwhelmed or intimidated because they are an injured worker. Our clients have a right to be compensated when they have been injured on the job site, whether from malfunctioning equipment or a co-worker’s carelessness. There are many parts to a comp case. We help people understand the medical care you will need now and future medical treatments (if needed), as well as medical bills. A personal injury determines if a person will be able to work again. It is broken down into the type of disability: total temporary disability and partial temporary disability and total permanent disability and partial permanent disability. Total and partial temporary disabilities do not result in a permanent injury that prevents a person from working full-time or ever working again. Injured workers are entitled to your workers’ compensation benefits until that person returns to their job. Total and partial permanent is the opposite; people that are permanently injured and cannot return to their job or any other job ever again. This results in a lawsuit to recoup costs for medical and miscellaneous expenses (current and future). We do not often take the insurance companies first settlement offer; we know they can often pay much more than they are willing. We strive to get the largest settlement amount possible, so our clients can live the remainder of their (or their loved one’s) life comfortably, not worrying about the bills but focusing on quality of life.

Below are some key questions our clients have asked. Please contact us to learn more and to file a claim.

So what does my settlement cover?
Pennsylvania recognizes workers’ compensation benefits for employees who are injured on the job and suffer a work injury. These benefits include medical benefits and, in some cases, partial wage replacement. Pennsylvania has one of the most employee-friendly workers’ compensation programs in the country. Unfortunately, filing a claim is still difficult and requires compliance with a series of rules and guidelines. In the event that you are injured on the job in Pennsylvania and have questions about filing a claim, it is important to seek advice from an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.

What is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
This is an insurance program that requires employers in Pennsylvania to provide employees with insurance to cover injuries in the workplace. Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws require qualifying employees to receive compensation for medical bills and payment for lost wages, regardless of who is at fault. In exchange, employees cannot file personal injury claims against their employer.

Who is covered?
Every employer in the state of Pennsylvania that employs one or more employee, part-time or full-time, must purchase workers’ compensation coverage. If a business has been operating for more than three years, they may be able to self-insure, but this is less common. Most businesses choose one of the following: purchase a policy through an agent; purchase coverage from the private sector insurance brokers; join a certified group self-insurance fund, or obtain insurance through the State Workers’ Insurance Fund.

Each business option ensures that employees who are hurt on the job, while acting within the scope of their employment duties, are able to collect compensation for their losses. However, not all workers in Pennsylvania qualify. The following workers are excluded from workers’ compensation: volunteers, independent contractors, domestic employees, agricultural laborers, etc.

Some employees that qualify for workers’ compensation will be barred from recovery if the injury is self-inflicted if the injury resulted from an illegal act, the injury resulted from illegal drug use or intoxication. Injuries that fall outside of these excluded categories will be covered by workers’ compensation insurance if the injury is work-related. A work-related injury is one that occurs while an employee is working for the benefit of the employer or becomes ill as a result of those duties. An injury can even happen by a third-party on the job site, such as faulty equipment from a construction contractor. Many believe a work injury must be catastrophic to be awarded damages. This could not be further from the truth. A work injury range in severity from carpel tunnel and a bulging disc to paralysis and loss of a limb. Also, not all injuries are clearly linked to a specific work duty, so it is important to contact a workers’ compensation attorney to handle any legal hurdles that could impede your ability to collect compensation. And filing a claim right away can prevent evidence from disappearing.

What Benefits are Available?
Payments for lost wages will total two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly wage; the maximum payable for 2017 is $995 per week.
Specific loss awards will be rewarded if the worker lost the permanent use of a body part or received permanent disfigurement as a result of the injury.
Payment for surgical and medical services, medicine, supplies, hospital treatment, prostheses, and orthopedic appliances.
Death benefits.

Any wage loss payments will not be paid until at least seven days after the date of the injury. If you are out of work for two weeks, you can receive retroactive payment for the first seven days. If you report the injury promptly and the claim is accepted by the insurer, you can expect to receive the first check within three weeks of the injury; afterward, you will receive a weekly check. If your claim is not immediately accepted, you can receive temporary compensation for up to three months. If your claim is denied passed this threshold, you, as the injured employee, can file an appeal with the Office of Adjudication.
