CHS Business Professionals of America students win National Championship
The CHS Business Professionals of America students were winners at their national leadership conference held in Nashville, Tennessee, May 4-7, 1995.
The Small Business Management team of Travis Wuest, Rugger Gottsacker, Kari Kastner, and Greg Gitcho won the national championship. They eliminated thirty-two other teams to obtain their first place trophies.
The small business management competition is designed to test students’ abilities to negotiate solutions, think creatively, make decisions, and work as a team to solve business problems.
The team was required to provide solutions to a business case problem and make their presentation to a panel of three judges.
Each student was responsible for a
portion of the presentation and was evaluated on their ability to communicate their ideas.
Students were required to demonstrate a working knowledge of business management concepts including equipment requirements, merchandising, business ethics, personnel, market research, advertising, bankruptcy, international business, and legal issues.
The panel of judges also questions team members at the end of the presentation.
Kimberly Hall won second place in the nation in Extemporaneous Speaking, competing against over 30 other students.
The Extemporaneous Speaking contest requires the student to demonstrate communication skills in arranging, organizing, and presenting information. Students have no prior knowl
edge of the subject and are not allowed to take reference materials to the contest room.
Elizabeth Weisman placed eighth in the nation in Entrepreneurship, competing against forty-two other students.
The Entrepreneurship contest requires the student to develop an organizational structure and operating plan to initiate a small business.
To be successful, a student must develop a business plan, and assess staffing, capital, inventory, and other requirements. They must identify the best organizational structure, develop a marketing strategy and address appropriate business regulations and taxation. The student then makes a presentation to a panel of three judges.
Get your local news while it’s fresh. Read the Heraid-ZeitungIsuzu pickupThis solid, well-built truck offers excellent value with few frills
Isuzu’s standard bed pickup is an outstanding automotive value.
The little truck we tested had few bells and whistles. Its windows cranked up and down the old fashioned way and to lock its doors you pushed the locks down by hand David one at a time.
Sullens But the little truck seemed, during the week we spent with it, very solid and well built. And it was surprisingly comfortable and wellmannered.
It occurred to me that if I were commuting to a job in Austin or San Antonio day in and day out, the Isuzu, with its combination of 25 mile per gallon fuel economy, low initial cost, comfort and driveability, and its utility as a light hauler, would be a serious contender when it came time to pick transportation.
Isuzu has produced more than 1.7 million of the little trucks worldwide, so the vehicle has a strong track record for durability and dependability.
The most popular version of the Isuzu pickup was the one we tested -- the two-wheel drive, standard bed truck powered by Isuzu’s 2.3-liter powerplant mated with a 5-speed manual transmission.
The proven engine has been given multipoint fuel injection for ‘95 and, as a result, has gained slightly increased horsepower and fuel economy.
The 2.3-liter engine generates IOO horsepower at 4,600 rpm and 125 foot-pounds or torque at 2,600 rpm.
The engine uses an efficient cross-flow cylinder head made of aluminum alloy, and has five main bearings to ensure long life and low vibration. Valve lifters are mechan-
15-inch wheels, bright hub caps and., P225/74R15 mud-and-snow radials. ,|
Optional in most states and standard on I the 4X4 ^California and Massachusetts is a * tire-and-wheel package that includes 31X10.5X5R15 mud-and-snow rated tires mounted on 15X7 inch aluminum wheels. To maintain pulling ability, the package includes 4.55:1 front and rear axle ratios.
Standard interior appointments include con- / toured scats, thrcc-spoke steering wheel, seethrough headrests, lockable glove box and v floor mats. ^
The Isuzu pickup is covered by a comprehensive 36-month/50,000-mile limited war- ^ ranty, 60-month/60,000-milc powertrain war- I ranty, and a 72-month/l(X),0(X)-mile rust perforation warranty accompanied by nationwide roadside assistance.
The base price of the test truck was $9,999 That price included dual outside rearview * mirrors, anti-lock on the rear wheels, tinted glass, upholstery, molded door trim with armrests, carpet, passenger assist grip, and a 14-gallon fuel tank (the long bed version of the truck has a standard 19.8-gallon fuel tank).
Options on the test vehicle included: pow- ' cr steering, $325; bed liner, $300; air conditioning, $830; AM/FM/Cassette sound system with clock, $405; sliding rear window, $100; wheel trim rings, $10; carpeted floor mats, $45; black rear bumper, $165; and paint strip- ^ ing, $90. I
With destination charges totaling $420, the bottom line on the pickup’s window sticker came to $12,759.

The 1995 Isuzu pickup
ical. A single overhead cam is used.
At the front, the 4X2 rides on an independent double wishbone suspension sprung by torsion bars and damped by double acting, telescopic shocks. A stabilizer bar helps keep the truck flat during cornering.
At the rear, the Isuzu pickup uses a banjo-type rear axle riding on four-leaf, semi-elliptical steel springs and damped by direct, double-acting shocks. Rear axle capacity on the 4X2 is 2,545 pounds.
A long wheelbase model is also available with the same suspension, engine and transmission.
The test truck rode on a 105.6-inch wheel
base. The wheelbase of the long bed version of the truck is 119.2 inches. Overall length of the SWB version is 177.3 inches and of the long bed is 193.8 inches.
Or the truck can be had with four-wheel drive. The 4X4 is equipped with a 2.6-liter powerplant that generates 120 horsepower at 4,600 rpm and 150 foot-pounds of torque at 2,800 rpm. The 4X4 drivetrain moves power to the wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case. The 4X4 is equipped with manual locking hubs and underbody skid plates as well as power-assisted, engine speed sensitive steering.
All Isuzu pickups have box section ladder
frames with six crossmembers, a payload rating up to 1,470 pounds and a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.
A double-wall cargo bed with center pull tailgate accommodates 42 cubic feet of cargo volume in the standard bed and 51.3 cubic feet in the long bed.
Brakes od the Isuzu pickup are power-assisted. The 4X4 gets front and rear discs, vented at the front and solid at the rear, and the 4X2 like our test truck has discs at the front and drums at the rear.
The standard wheels on two-wheel drive Isuzu pickups are styled steel units wearing P195/75R14 radial tires. Four-by trucks gel
