Craig Happy New Year.
We have now reached a new year, and I'm hopeful that the financial woes many have experienced will move on and away.
Far, far away, in fact.
I stand in awe of this great country when we react to a challenging time. The Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks come to mind as one of those trying times.
Although that challenging event was driven by different circumstances, it didn't take our country long to find a solution and move forward.
I am optimistic that a similarly successful approach will result from our current challenge.
Need bailed out?
Now located in the old Cattoor Photography location, 2255 W. Victory Way in Craig, is B & G Bail Bonds. The business opened Nov. 1, 2008.
Clint Whitehead, owner/operator said he "moved to Craig because I am a big history buff, and I wanted to become a part of the community that I could grow in and raise some kids."
Basic services provided by B & G Bail Bonds include providing money to bail people out of jail, and serving as a recovery agent for those who skip bail, are wanted felons, or folks on America's Most Wanted list. The business serves Moffat, Routt and Rio Blanco counties from the Craig office and can be reached at 824-5276 or 629-9672.
New salon, new faces and brand new decor
That is what you will find at the old location of Attitudez in Centennial Mall. Breezes Salon has taken over the lease, and it's located across the way from Eyecare Specialties.
Veronica Simpson - hair stylist and nail tech - and Patricia Schumaker, - master colorist/co-owner - already are very busy and anxious to hire two new people, a nail tech, and a stylist.
Schumaker has owned and operated four other salons, three of them in Colorado, and has been a stylist for more than 16 years.
"Customer service is No. 1 in my book, and we pride ourselves on that," Schumaker said.
The four-booth salon has been redecorated with a tropical theme. Each booth has been recreated into a styling station with bamboo as the main accent.
Breezes is open seven days a week: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Although the business will not offer tanning beds, it has added skin care and body waxing. It also offers coffee and treats each day, adjustable European shampoo bowls, and a Maiden Spa, a heated, reclining leather massage chair.
Breezes Salon can be reached at 824-2300.
At an office near you : food delivered to you
Cookies Custom Catering, 660 Yampa Ave., opened for business at the beginning of December.
Jeana and Paul Anderson co-own one of Craig's newest eateries. They offer everything from breakfast burritos to deli wraps and hot sandwiches.
The business has been open in Wyoming for more than 11 years and has served folks as far away as Torrington and Green River, Wyo. Their goal had once been to set up for special events such as fairs or downtown events, but now they do it all.
There is no minimum on how much you have to order for delivery. That's right, you can call and order one or six Espresso's and have them delivered to you anywhere in Craig for only a 10 percent delivery fee.
"We wanted to make it convenient, for those who can't get away from the office," said Jeana Anderson.
They also wanted to provide an alternative to the traditional offerings for delivery, Italian or Chinese food.
Cookies Custom Catering is open Monday through Thursday for takeout in Craig or for delivery by calling 824-0202. They open at 5 a.m. for breakfast each day and close at 3 p.m.
