New Kohl’s to open
A new Kohl’s Department Store will open in March and it will have a job fair to fill positions there Saturday through next Wednesday.
The new store will need to fill 105 positions, among them cashiers, sales associates, early-morning freight unloaders and others.
Those interested should go to the Park Inn at 3377 New Castle Road on Saturday from 10:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Sunday and Monday from 10:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Tuesday and next Wednesday from 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 877-639-5645 or visit www.kohlscareers.com.
Vicki and Jim Antonio of New Castle were named the winners of the Sheely’s Furniture and Appliance $20,000 Home Makeover contest at a drawing Dec. 21.
More than 10,000 entries were submitted either at the store or Sheely’s Facebook page.
Upon hearing the news, the company reports that Vicki shouted, “Merry Christmas to me!” The couple will share the prize with their three sons.
The $20,000 certificate entitles the couple to buy whatever they choose from Sheely’s inventory of furniture, appliances and home decor items.
Following the January tax law changes made by Congress under the American Taxpayer Relief Act, the Internal Revenue Service announced Tuesday it plans to open the 2013 filing season and begin processing individual income tax returns Jan. 30.
The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on that date after updating forms and completing programming and testing of its processing systems. This will reflect the bulk of the late tax-law changes enacted Jan. 2. The announcement means that the vast majority of tax filers — more than 120 million households — should be able to start filing tax returns starting Jan 30.
New divide in Europe
Record unemployment and fraying social-welfare systems in Europe risk creating a new divide in the continent, the EU warned Tuesday, when figures showed joblessness across the 17 EU countries that use the euro hit a new high.
Eurozone unemployment rose to 11.8 percent in November, the highest since the euro currency was founded in 1999, according to the statistical agency Eurostat. The rate was up from 11.7 percent in October and 10.6 percent a year earlier.
