WILTON — “When you have a problem with your credit card as Senator Collins described, you want a Mainer on the other end of the phone — you don’t want someone shifty from New Jersey,” quipped U. S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin at the ribbon cutting ceremony at the Barclaycard call center on Tuesday. Susan Collins, and Barclaycard U. S. Chief Executive Officer Curt Hess were on hand to celebrate the completion of the four-month, $5 million renovation to the call center that will allow the credit card company to expand its workforce of 380 by... The Maine theme at the Wilmington, Delaware-based company’s call center was prominent both in the building’s decor and the remarks of the politicians and executives at Tuesday’s event, which celebrated an expansion of the call center that opened... Varying Maine motifs decorate work spaces, conference rooms and hallways. One of the operation’s leads in customer care, Brian MacLeod was quick to point out the $5 million investment was not simply intended to make the building pretty. “We are providing customer care and fraud detection services for the Barclaycard U. S. portfolio,” MacLeod said.

Could it be that you use that bait or lure more minutes or hours on the water than everything else in your tackle box combined. Such challenges bring back memories of a pond-hopping day with Morris Eidman, retired high school math teacher, farmer and stockman, and good friend who knows his way around fishing holes. It was one of those late spring Sunday afternoons when Morris may have decided the only way he’d get rid of the stretch marks on his arm, caused by my less-than-subtle twisting, was to guide me to a familiar tallgrass pond. Less than five minutes out of his vintage Chevy pickup, we were catching and releasing bass in the 10-12-inch range. I started with a favorite black and white skirted H&H single-spin lure. This and other color patterns of the same hairpin-type spinner have been solid, consistent bass getters since a south Texas friend first gave me a couple of them back in the 1960s. Meanwhile, Morris caught a keeper largemouth on a ¼-ounce white... Twenty minutes into this adventure, the bass on my side of the pond stopped striking my lure. Even so, I stayed with this old favorite spinner for perhaps another dozen casts. Around the far side of the pond, Morris was stringing a few bass as well.
