He said the company said expected revenue would also take a hit in the fourth quarter. The San Francisco-based company reported revenue of $241.1 million in third quarter, up from $223 million during the same period a…

lab aims to encourage youth to pursue mitchell tech industry

All of it is possible due to the Smart Lab at the Mitchell Middle School, which is now fully implemented after receiving an additional $25,000 in grant money from America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program, sponsored by Monsanto.Principal Justin Zajic started looking into replacing the industrial technology course last December and put together a committee involving the Mitchell Area Development Corporation, Toshiba, Muth Electric, Mitchell Technical Institute and other community members, the Daily Republic reported. “We discovered we were having problems getting people into these major tech industries that we have here in Mitchell, so we brainstormed on how to grow locally.
