Setting the standard

This past week, the Best Western Deer Park Inn and Suites was bestowed the honor of "Best Western's Chairman's Award for cleanliness and maintenance."

To receive the award, hotels also must meet Best Western's standards for design and high customer service. The local Best Western fit the bill in both categories.

"Receiving the chairman's award from Best Western is a tremendous honor," owner Kerry Moe said in a news release.

You can make reservations at this hotel by visiting the 262 Commerce St., address or by calling the 24-hour toll free 1-800-987-8376. To take a virtual tour, visit the Web site,

As much as I would hate to add to the congestion of the truck bypass, why is it that Peroulis Brothers trucking is allowed to come right down main street and add wear and tear on Main Street. Maybe the city fathers need to look at the ruts that these trucks leave and put up and enforce a delivery truck only route. Notice I said enforce not allow it to continue like the "Right Turn Only" coming out of KMart onto US 40

I agree. I thought there was something about trucks needing to using the truck route instead of going through town unless they are making a delivery. Do the people in charge turn a blind eye because of who ownes the trucks?
