By Sherri Simmons, President and CEO

Interestingly, two of Duffey Communications' top ten February news stories involve our Cold War nemesis, Russia.

Remember When a Southern Snow Storm was Fun?

By Sherri Simmons, President and CEO

When I was a little girl, we lived in a rural area of Georgia. Snow was rare, but always celebrated – by my brother, sister and me, that is. School would close, we would pile on the cold weather gear – the kind not really meant for cold. (If you’ve ever worn cotton mittens in snow or ice, you get it.) We would slide down our massive hill on cardboard boxes, traipse through the woods and get lost in the snow drifts, stom... Read More >

Usually, during January most people are tuned in to Colorado news for snow reports, ski conditions and the Winter X Games.  This year, the legal sale and use of recreational marijuana has been added to the list. Regardless of your position on the issue – it will be an interesting one to watch.  And even more so, one to experience.  And no, it’s not the inhalation of which I’m writing.  It’s the complex...

Goodbye Blue Monday!

By Sherri Simmons, President and CEO

According to some researchers, the first Monday after New Year’s Day, known as Blue Monday, is the most miserable, depressing day of the year – which just happened to be yesterday.  The Christmas holidays are over, we have already started breaking our New Year’s resolutions, the weather is frightful, and so on, and so on.  Well thank goodness Blue Monday is now just a memory.

Technology Public Relations:  Images are Words in Any Language

By Sherri Simmons, President and CEO

Posted on September 04, 2012

By Sherri Simmons, President and CEO

I do not like Monday holidays and never have.  But I do like Friday holidays a lot.  And I’ve always wondered why holidays such as Labor Day and Memorial Day are on Mondays instead of Fridays.  So, I Googled it.  And guess what?  There is actually a Uniform Monday Holiday Act that establishes the observance of certain holidays on Mondays: Washington's Birthday; Memorial Day; Columbus Day; Labor Day; and Ma...
