$10 Off NRA Annual Memberships (Renewals Too)

NRA Membership offerIf you haven’t joined the NRA yet, or if your membership is coming up for renewal, then here is a little extra incentive. Now through December 15, 2010, the NRA is knocking ten bucks off the price of first-time memberships and renewing one-year memberships. That makes the promotional price just $25.00 — which entitles you to full “regular member” benefits including a one-year subscription to one of three print magazines: American Rifleman, American Hunter, or America’s First Freedom. If you are already a Life Member or fully paid up, consider giving a membership to a friend or family member. The NRA has been an effective defender of gun rights because it is 4.3 million-members-strong. That is a force to be reckoned with.

Olin Moves Winchester Operations from Illinois to Mississippi

Olin Corp. (NYSE: OLN) has announced that its Winchester centerfire operations and approximately 1,000 jobs will be relocated to Oxford, Mississippi (Lafayette County). The company’s decision follows two failed ratification votes by members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, in which employees twice rejected a union proposal that would have allowed Centerfire Operations to remain in East Alton, Illinois. The company informed the unions in August that it was considering relocating operations to Oxford to enhance the competitiveness of its operations. The company engaged in discussions with union leaders over the past two months, but Olin’s final offers were rejected, so Olin decided to move its operations down South.

Olin’s relocation decision was influenced by an incentive package offered by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. According to Business Week, the Mississippi State Development Authority will give Lafayette County $25,000,000 “to build a new 500,000-square-foot building for Olin.” The new publicly-owned Olin plant will be built near the current Winchester facility in Oxford. Lafayette County is also “providing the site and site preparation work.” CLICK HERE for more details from Business Week.
