New door sideline
Mike Schuler, a Champaign cabinet maker and finish carpenter, has launched a specialty sideline.
Doors Well Hung is offering installation of interior and exterior doors, plus locks, hardware and weather stripping. Services include fitting new doors to old, irregular frames and difficult or unusual door installations.

Working with Deere
Deere & Company has included Champaign-based EarthSense in its Intelligent Solutions Group Startup Collaborator program.
New last year, this program was launched to enhance relationships with start-up companies that could benefit John Deere customers, according to Deere & Company.
Deere called EarthSense one of four leading start-ups working together to transform agriculture. The other three were companies in Brazil, Denmark and Israel.
EarthSense builds novel sensing methods to improve in-field data collection. The company’s first robot, TerraSentia, was released a year ago.
