Shaver is the director of The Living Center. Beth Campbell submitted the nomination for Teresa Shaver and had this to say about her. "Teresa is not only the director of The Living Center and the person to whom we report, she is a friend to every person on the staff. When a member of The Living Center Team has something to visit with Teresa about, she will listen attentively. She will then evaluate what we've said and give us a very thought out, positive and prayed about response. Teresa has very high values which makes it easy to give her the respect she so richly deserves. We look forward to each day with her as she is a fair, passionate and fun person to have as our director. Teresa believes very strongly in the mission and vision of The Living Center and does her job with the love and understanding with which God has gifted her. Speaking for the entire staff at The Living Center, Teresa we love you and would not trade the opportunity to work with you as our director." Congratulations to Teresa Shaver for being named the Chamber's Boss of the Quarter.

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The Sioux City mail processing center has closed despite attempts to save it. The final pieces of mail went through the center on Saturday morning. Operations are being transferred to a processing center in Sioux Falls, S.D. The postal service announced the consolidation decision in June as part of its plan to cut its staggering losses. Iowa's congressional delegation and others tried to fight the closure. Postal officials have said local mail delivery will not be affected by the move. However, Sioux City will lose about 70 jobs.
