Walden Asset Management's efforts to have filtration and packaging company Clarcor report in much more detail on its sustainability efforts has failed for the second year in a row — but the firm has picked up some support in the past 12 months. At Clarcor's recent annual shareholders' meeting, 17.4 million shares were cast in favor of Walden's proposal, while 21.1 million shares were cast against the plan. A year ago, those numbers were 14.3 million and 21.5 million, respectively.
Corrections Corp. of America Chairman and former CEO John Ferguson has told the company he'll retire from the board in the spring of next year.

John's leadership as chairman of the Board has served to further build on his immeasurable contributions to CCA and we congratulate him on his well-earned retirement."
