Carolina Owner Taking Hands-On Approach

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer via the Santa Barbara News-Press,

‘‘I plan to come in and actually help work on both those areas myself two or three days a week starting in July,’’ Karmanos said this week in a telephone interview from his Detroit office. ‘‘We’re going to do just fine.’‘
