National Small Business Week Focus: Case Design/Remodeling Celebrates 50 Years

With entrepreneurs around the country working diligently to bring creative approaches to all types of industries and to improve the economy, it's heartening to find a company celebrating 50 years in business. This past March marked the 50-year anniversary of Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. as a DC Metro area full service residential remodeling organization with offices in Bethesda, Maryland and Falls Church, Virginia.

First known as Case Construction Company in 1961 when founded by Fred Case, the firm changed its name in the early 1980s to Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. when it brought design in-house. Bruce Case, the current president and son of Fred Case, says Case Design/Remodeling is committed to the foundation of integrity and excellence that the company was built on.

The Washington Post Pulls a Darwin

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that traditional media struggles to find its place in the digital world. Electronic distribution gives people greater choice, and we consume from the publishers that give us the most value—however each one of us personally defines that value. Advertising revenues have followed eyeballs and, over time, newspapers have lost relevance. Now, The Washington Post has pulled a Darwin maneuver by launching a service called Trove.

While I applaud the move, I wonder if it’s going to net the results they seek. The Washington Post has teamed up with Facebook to aggregate and deliver personalized news based on a consumer’s likes and dislikes. That, in itself, makes me uncomfortable.
