CAL­HOUN — The Ge­or­gia Depart­ment of La­bor’s Rome Ca­reer Cen­ter will help Beaulieu of Amer­ica Inc. re­cruit 74 em­ploy­ees to work in Cal­houn.

The re­cruit­ment for the floor­ing com­pany will take place Wed­nes­day, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the ca­reer cen­ter lo­cated at 462 River­side Park­way NE in Rome.

The em­ployer is re­cruit­ing qual­ity con­trol tech­ni­cians, heat set creel­ers, heat set depart­ment train­ers, heat set fix­ers, heat set op­er­a­tors, ship­ping clerk/truck driv­ers, twist­ing fix­ers, twist­ing ser­vice work­ers, twist­ing su­per­vi­sors and yarn pack­ers.

Due to U.S. Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety and Health (OSHA) reg­u­la­tions, all ap­pli­cants must be at least 18 years old. A high school diploma, or GED, is re­quired.

While it is not manda­tory, the em­ployer prefers that ap­pli­cants have some ex­pe­ri­ence in their re­lated field. The ship­ping clerk/ truck driver po­si­tion re­quires ap­pli­cants to have a com­mer­cial driver’s li­cense.

Salaries for the twist­ing su­per­vi­sor po­si­tion will range from $40,000 to $50,000 a year.

Free skin can­cer screen­ing avail­able

CAL­HOUN — In ob­ser­vance of Na­tional Skin Can­cer Aware­ness Month, Gor­don Hos­pi­tal, in part­ner­ship with the Skin Can­cer and Cos­metic Der­ma­tol­ogy Cen­ter, will of­fer free skin can­cer screen­ings May 1 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Har­ris Ra­di­a­tion Ther­apy Cen­ter.

Ac­cord­ing to the Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety, skin can­cer is by far the most com­mon form of can­cer. The three main types of skin can­cers are basal cell skin can­cers, squa­mous cell skin can­cers and melanomas.

Basal and squa­mous cell skin can­cers are the most com­mon and are usu­ally found on parts of the body that are reg­u­larly ex­posed to the sun.

Basal and squa­mous cell can­cers are un­likely to spread, but it is still nec­es­sary to treat them early to pre­vent fur­ther dam­age.

Melanomas are not as com­mon, but they are much more dan­ger­ous. Though al­most al­ways cur­able in its early stages, melanomas are likely to spread if left alone.

The Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety es­ti­mates that in the U.S. alone in 2017, about 87,110 new melanomas will be di­ag­nosed and about 9,730 peo­ple are ex­pected to die of melanoma. Lim­ited space is avail­able. Call 706-879-5850 to reg­is­ter for this free screen­ing.
