Delaware North Parks Services Inc. has won a 10-year contract to run lodging and recreation services at Deer Creek State Park in southern Ohio, the Buffalo-based company said Friday.

The company, which is a subsidiary of Delaware North Cos. Inc., did not disclose the value of the contract from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Under the contract, Delaware North Parks Services will manage the park's 100-room vacation lodge, along with its restaurant, gift shop, lodge, conference center and fitness center beginning on Tuesday.

The 4,800-acre Deer Creek park is a stocked reservoir and fields that feature game animals, such as pheasants, rabbits, squirrels and deer.

Merchants Group buys big block of its stock
Merchants Group Inc. plans to buy back another 100,000 shares of its stock as the Buffalo-based insurance company continues a stock repurchase program that already has taken about 20 percent of the firm's shares out of circulation.

Merchants, which has bought back more than 650,000 shares of its stock since 1996, said it still has permission to buy back 54,700 shares of its stock under a repurchase authorized last September.

Together with the new authorization, Merchants has permission to buy back another 6 percent of its outstanding stock, which is down by more than 7 percent during the last year.

Cello-Pack workers vote against union

Workers at Cello-Pack Corp. in Cheektowaga have voted against joining the Graphic Communications International Union.

In a vote Friday at the company's 55 Insbruck St. plant, workers voted 56 to 26 against joining the union, according to the National Labor Relations Board.

The vote was prompted by workers at the company, not an organizing campaign, GCIU Local 261 President James Speyer said. The company performs commercial printing on cellophane.
