I would probably give 11/10 if it would be possible in the ROT section.

This job trumps the rest

Local company helping to build nation's second-tallest structure

By THOMAS S. BROWN
Business Writer


EDGEWATER -- With its boat orders slumping, a small fiberglass plant is staying afloat by helping developer Donald Trump build the second tallest structure in America.

Porta Fiberglass is making the fiberglass skin for a 192-foot steel spire that will be placed atop the 92-story Tower Chicago later this year. When completed, the Trump edifice will be the second-tallest structure in Chicago (and the rest of the nation) at 1,362 feet, just 90 feet shorter than the Sears Tower. More here: http://www.news-journalonline.com/Ne...IZ01052608.htm
