Good morning!

Good government strikes again. But this time, it was the Moffat County Commissioners looking after local businesses in Moffat County. The commissioners decided Tuesday to formulate guidelines that will favor local businesses in the bid process for work paid for by Moffat County.

I, for one, am very excited about this move by the county commissioners to shop locally. I continue to advocate for policies in favor of businesses that are located in our community because if business is good, that will trickle down to each and every resident of our community.

I also am a huge advocate for shopping locally as much as possible for all Moffat County residents. If ever you run across my wife, she will painfully discuss this topic with you. Shopping local makes our local economy better, and with the national economy struggling right now, I encourage you to do your part, as well.

Nice work, Moffat County!

VFW Steakhouse adds breakfast to its menu

In March of this year, the Veterans of Foreign Wars hired Chris Morchak as its chef, and the restaurant's name has changed from the Park Cafe to The VFW Steakhouse.

"Food quality is 100 percent better than it was," Morchak said.

Beginning Sept. 16, they added a breakfast menu. This will be available throughout hunting season, and if locals respond to this added option, the breakfast hours will continue after hunting season concludes.

The VFW Steakhouse has specials daily, and on Friday, it will have an all-you-can-eat fish fry for $10.50, which will include homemade coleslaw and all-you-can-eat beer-battered cod. Saturday night will feature a prime rib night; 10-ounce is $17.95. This will include all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar. Call The VFW Steakhouse at 824-7145, or visit them at 419 E. Victory Way.

On Wednesday, employees of Re/Max About You will raise funds to aid in curing breast cancer. Participating is simple: Just wear pink Wednesday, and make a donation of $5. Call Bobbie Jo Foster at 824-7000 for more information, or visit Re/Max at 390 Yampa Ave.

Changes happening at ImageMakers Salon

Many changes have taken place at ImageMakers Salon recently. Susan Johnston remains the proprietor, as well as longtime ImageMakers cosmetologists Danielle Brown and Rachel Lowe, who just returned from maternity leave. However, ImageMakers welcomes a new cosmetologist and nail technician to the team. Cosmetologist Stephanie Urbanoski and nail technician Cristi Bougay will be starting soon. Johnston, Brown, Lowe Urbanoski and Bougay will continue to focus on customer service at ImageMakers.

You can contact ImageMakers Salon at 824-6488, or stop by 458 Yampa Ave. during normal business hours. You also can set up an evening appointment that is convenient for you.
