KLLM Transport Services Announces Largest Driver Pay Increase in Company History

JACKSON, Miss. -- KLLM Transport Services (KLLM), one of the leading temperature-controlled, truckload carriers in North America, announced today the largest comprehensive pay and compensation increase in company history.

"KLLM drivers have been nothing short of remarkable over the last few years through some challenging times in the transportation industry. They've stepped up to the plate every time they've been asked to keep food on the shelves and stores stocked," said Jim Richards, KLLM President and CEO. "We are thrilled to pass along the largest pay increase in company history starting in February and the response from our current drivers has already been tremendous. Our leadership has taken feedback and put it into action with not only increasing driver wages, but also moving to practical miles, paid time off, and higher guaranteed weekly pay options."

Every Over-the-Road (OTR) and Regional company driver and independent contractor leased on with KLLM across the country will receive a pay and compensation increase in February with OTR company drivers set to see the highest cents per mile bump of almost 33 percent. KLLM Driving Academy students coming out of training have the option to go company driver or independent contractor immediately and will also see their earning potential jump 33 percent.

Regional company drivers and independent contractors will see their pay and compensation rise 10 to 16 percent in February with every regional company driver position in the company having a guaranteed weekly minimum pay option.

"Guaranteed minimum weekly pay options is something we implemented over the last year and have now rolled out nationwide to our regional company drivers keeping their wages more predictable," said Richards. "If available to drive, they know exactly how much they'll bring home each week versus having the ups and downs that can occur in some instances."

Paid earned time off for OTR company drivers will also be implemented soon where drivers who have earned home time will now be paid for the days they're off the road.

"The men and women on the road for KLLM each day will always be our greatest asset and this announcement today is driver-focused with their wants and needs in mind," said Richards. "Paid home time focuses on drivers and their families, and we're pleased to offer that to our OTR company drivers. They'll now be paid while spending time off the road with their loved ones."

With more than 55 years of exceptional service, KLLM partners with some of the largest brands in America each day within the lower 48 states and with service into Mexico.

Choyce Peterson Publishes Year-End 2021 Lower Fairfield County Office Space Availability Poster

NORWALK, Conn. -- Choyce Peterson, Inc. (, a full service commercial real estate brokerage firm with a specialization in tenant representation, announced the release of its 24th semi-annual Lower Fairfield County Office Space Availability Poster.

The full-size poster depicts silhouettes of 96 buildings with a total inventory of 18.2 million square feet (sf) and tracks changes in office space availability from Year-End 2020 to Year-End 2021 in larger, primarily multi-tenanted Class A office buildings in Stamford, Norwalk, Greenwich, and Westport. The unique study illustrates the absorption and give back of direct and sublease space, as well as overall availability statistics.

This report shows there was a 0.9 percentage point decrease in total availability during 2021, from 29.8% at Year-End 2020 to 28.9% at Year-End 2021. Of the 5,277,382 sf of available space: 3,738,928 sf (70.9%) is on a direct basis while 1,538,454 sf (29.1%) is sublease space.

The following refers to the poster's "availability rate" at Year End 2020 vs. Year-End 2021 in each market surveyed:

* Stamford decreased from 34.1% to 30.4%. Of the 31 buildings surveyed, 17 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 10 had an increase and 4 were unchanged. 300 Atlantic Street, 1 Landmark Square, and One Station Place (Metro Center) combined added 145,781 sf of available space, while 290 Harbor Drive, 2200 Atlantic Street (1 Harbor Point), and 3001 Summer Street combined leased 258,461 sf. Interestingly, of the 2,913,696 sf of available space in Stamford, five buildings account for 47%, or 1,370,324 sf, of the total.

* Norwalk increased from 34.6% to 38.3%. Of the 20 buildings surveyed, 10 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 8 had an increase and 2 were unchanged. 201, 301 and 401 Merritt 7 combined added 157,689 sf of available space, and 801 Main Avenue and 20 Glover combined leased 90,914 sf. The 38.3% availability is the highest level since we started tracking these buildings ten years ago.

* Greenwich, the strongest of the four markets, decreased from 16.1% to 15.5%. Of the 25 buildings surveyed, 14 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 3 had an increase and 8 were unchanged. 100 West Putnam Avenue, 1 American Lane and 411 West Putnam Avenue combined added 196,409 sf of available space, and 1 Greenwich Plaza, 600 Steamboat combined leased 148,992 sf. A rare occurrence in the market: there is now essentially an equal amount of sublease and direct space available in Greenwich.

* Westport increased from 12.6% to 16.0%. Of the 20 buildings surveyed, 5 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 6 had an increase and 9 were unchanged. 276 Post Road W, 57 Greens Farms Road and 285 Riverside Avenue combined added 53,491 sf of available space, and 33 Riverside Avenue and 274 Riverside Avenue combined leased 25,440 sf. Two points of interest: there is almost double the amount of available sublease space versus direct, and 13 of the 20 buildings surveyed have either no space for lease or less than 5,000 sf available.

"It's certainly an interesting office market environment where two sub-markets had a decrease in availability (Greenwich and Stamford), while two sub-markets had an increase (Norwalk and Westport)," stated John P. Hannigan, co-founder and a principal at Choyce Peterson. "There's a balancing act going on right now: on one hand, sublease space continues to be added to the market, while at the same time Greenwich and Stamford in particular are attracting companies from outside the area who are absorbing large amounts of space. As a result, we expect the overall availability rate to remain relatively the same during the first half of 2022."

Adam M. Cognetta, vice president at Choyce Peterson noted, "Sublease supply, fueled by a shift in workplace trends and an underlying uncertainty, is something we continue to track closely as it remains a primary contributor to overall availability. Interestingly, we're seeing well-located assets at premium price points attract more interest and outperform the broader market."

Hannigan added, "Now more than ever, landlords continue to be flexible in their lease negotiations and accommodating tenants' specific needs. Transactions are even being completed with companies who have two plus years of term remaining on their leases. We at Choyce Peterson are successfully advising our clients to create an action plan on whether to renew, downsize or relocate. From there, we are negotiating very favorable financial terms on their behalf, including generous amounts of free rent, discounted base rent, and landlord funded retrofits designed exactly to a tenants' specific layout needs."

Neuro Diverse Living Announces the Launch of Their New Brand Name, Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. -- Front Porch Cohousing is excited to announce the launch of their new brand and the inspiration behind that change. As a cohousing community of private homes clustered around shared space, Front Porch Cohousing will intentionally design spaces to create opportunities for those with and without neuro or cognitive disabilities to build meaningful and lasting relationships. A community where the support, encouragement and assistance of others will provide a safe and prosperous environment for all who live there.

The launch date for Front Porch Cohousing is January 18, 2022, and we expect our new inclusive, diverse communities to become thriving assets across Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL believes the best way to deliver on our vision is by providing a sense of belonging as we create authentic and vibrant spaces that are not just houses, but homes for adults experiencing neurological disorders. Our homes will be designed to bring a sense of neighborhood while providing hope and peace of mind to the families and friends who support these neurodiverse adults, knowing their loved ones are in a community which will empower them.

We believe we can accomplish our vision through our cohousing model by creating a nostalgic setting from a time when neighborhood kids played until the streetlights came on and people visited on their front porches; a time when neighbors openly supported each other. As we shift to our new brand, we welcome you to Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL.

"I'm encouraged about the work Front Porch Cohousing is doing in the community to address the critical shortage of neuro-inclusive cohousing options for adults with autism, assuring they will never live alone or isolated," said Jim Brexler, President & CEO Doylestown Health Network.

"With there being such a significant need for housing for people with disabilities in the Lehigh Valley, I'm thrilled to see the efforts and leadership that Front Porch Cohousing is making in creating inclusive and supportive cohousing options and opportunities," said Seth Hoderewski, Director of Transition Services, Lehigh Valley Center for Independent Living.

Front Porch Cohousing: A Neuro-Inclusive Community by NDL invites you to learn more about us on our website. There are many ways you can participate, donate, get involved and perhaps see how this type of community could be the best fit for you or your family member.

Florida Podiatric Group Brings High-Tech, High-Quality Healthcare to Largo

LARGO, Fla. -- Modern Foot & Ankle opens its sixth clinic - and first in Pinellas County - on Friday. The Central Florida podiatric group has selected Kyle Haverstrom, DPM, as the provider for the new Largo, Florida, location.

"I wanted to join Modern Foot & Ankle because it's at the forefront of technology when it comes to foot and ankle care and becoming a well-known force in Tampa and Orlando," said Dr. Haverstrom. "The technology-based approach is appealing to me because giving patients the most state-of-the-art treatments for all issues, big and small, is important."

Underscoring the necessity of creating personalized experiences, Dr. Haverstrom also pointed to the group's facilitation of "quick results, up-to-date treatments, and same-day appointments" as vital to achieving optimal outcomes.

"It allows patients to get better faster," he added.

Dr. Haverstrom came to the Largo and Clearwater area by way of Family Foot Health Center in Rogers, Arkansas, where he honed his surgical skills. He noted that his postgraduate training at Jefferson Health in Philadelphia, which focused on sports medicine, arthroscopy, pediatrics, and trauma, prioritized implementing surgical advances.

"I enjoy the surgical aspect of the specialty," said Dr. Haverstrom, "but I will try all conservative therapies before going into the operating room."

The brand-new office, located on the third floor of the professional center at 11200 Seminole Blvd., in Largo, houses digital X-ray and ultrasound technologies. The space has been under renovation since last August to bring it into line with Modern Foot & Ankle's signature contemporary look.

But it's the proximity to surf and sand that speaks to the podiatrist's background.

"The patients in this area are great! They are very active, and I love being able to help them get back on their feet to enjoy the sun, beach, and outdoors," explained Dr. Haverstrom. "Coming from a sports family and growing up playing hockey, I had many foot and ankle injuries. I feel I can relate with my patients on a personal level and really provide the best care possible."

About Modern Foot & Ankle®

Through Big-City Technology. Small-Town Care.® Modern Foot & Ankle is reshaping the patient experience and curating a progressive model for podiatric healthcare. Our physicians provide comprehensive medical and surgical solutions for foot and ankle conditions in clinics across Central Florida. With 24/7 online booking and check-in, extended office hours, advanced on-site equipment, and cutting-edge treatment options, Modern Foot & Ankle serves patients efficiently, comfortably, and on their schedule.
