TNT has announced that it will offer 30 business technology assessments to eligible businesses in southwest Minnesota during the first half of 2003. To date, TNT has conducted over 60 technology assessments for businesses located in southwest Minnesota. The technology assessments, which are financially subsidized by TNT, provide three key informational tools for the participating business. First, the TNT assessment team evalu- ates the current use of technology within the business or organization, including current use of software, hardware and business processes. Second, the team develops criteria and suggestions for upgrading the business' technology. Finally, the team recommends specific actions, products, timing and a cost analysis tbr investing in a technology upgrade. In order to conduct a technology assessment, the TNT assessment team meets for four to six hours with key members of the business' manage- ment and operational staff. The team conducts an in depth interview with the business' chief executive and their information technology staff, tours the business facilities, reviews current technology, and inventories the busi- ness' computer and telecommunica- tion equipment and utilization. The team then develops a report that includes recommendations, prices and an action plan. It is then the responsibility of the business to, implement the recommendations.

Molly is the daughter of Val and Paula Rausch. Jean Lepper, CEO and Owner of Main Street Cotton Shop in Redwood Falls and previous recipient of a tech- nology assessment said, "The busi- ness technology assessment provided through TNT has been an eye opener.

The Main Street Cotton Shop is now fully computerized and offers e- commerce and e marketing to all cus- tomers. Check out its Web site at www.mainstreetcottonshop.com. Businesses of all types, sizes and levels of technology utilization are eligible for TNT's technology assess- ments. If you are interested in receiv- ing a business technology assessment, contact your local TNT representa- tive, Barbara Voecks at 605-862-8149 or contact the Southwest Minnesota Foundation at 1-800-594-9480. For more information about TNT, log onto its Web site at www.mtswmn.org. TNT's mission is to, "ensure that communities and individuals in south- west Minnesota can compete in the world economy of the future and that our communities remain a viable place for families to maintain a healthy and prosperous way of life." TNT, which is committed to eco- nomic development through the use of technology, is facilitated and partially funded by the Southwest Minnesota Foundation and comprised of stake- holders from southwest Minnesota. Pain, stiffness and limited range of motion are often associated with neck (cervical spine) problems. Other common symptoms related to this area are headaches, dizziness, arm pain and numbness. The neck has seven vertebrae with nerves that pass between them. Strain from overuse, stress, poor pos- ture or trauma can cause malatignment which reduces movement of the vertebrae and results in inflammation. A thorough examination can detect the site of trouble and lead to corrective treatment. It is important to note that studies on treatment of neck problems find spinal manipulation to be very safe when compared to other common treatments.
