As you drive west on Victory Way, you may notice on your left as you cross Taylor Street a brightly painted Flower Mine.

As you drive one more block, on your right, you will notice the newly painted Ocean Pearl on the corner of Ranney Street.

Both buildings have a similar color and are very eye catching. You can reach the Flower Mine by calling 824-7441, and Ocean Pearl by calling 824-8888, or by stopping by their locations on Victory Way.

Gym switches to 24-hour format

As the weather is turning cooler, you may be thinking about how to get your exercise during the upcoming winter.

Holistic Health & Fitness, effective Sept. 1, is offering a 24-hour facility to their members at no extra charge.

There are a few restrictions.

They also have changed the hours that the gym is staffed. There will be staff at the gym from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. You can contact Holistic Health and Fitness at 420 Breeze St., or by calling 824-4700.

Craig Chamber to add new members to board

The Craig Chamber of Commerce is currently holding elections for four board member seats. They have sent out the ballots for this election to all of their members.

There are nine people on the ballot to fill the open seats for a three-year term. One incumbent, Gene Bilodeau (Colorado Northwestern Community College) and eight others: Jim Herschberg (Trapper Mine), Annie MacGregor (High Tech Audio and Video), Alice Long, (Best Western Deer Park Inn), George Rohrich (The Memorial Hospital), Soni Vice (Lariat Liquors), Julie Nalty (City Market), Lou Groff (Wal-Mart), and Raph Finneman (Tri-State Equipment) are on the ballot.

If the business you work for is a Chamber member, I encourage you to ensure that your company submits their ballot. The Chamber of Commerce can be an important part of our community, and the people that lead that organization are essential to its success.

I also want to encourage you to thank exiting board members: Jeannie Thornberry (Northwest Title Co.), Lisa Balstad (Re/Max About You) and David Dempster (Bank of Colorado), the next time you see them, for their service to the Chamber.

For more information about this election, call the Chamber at 824-5689. The deadline is Oct. 5.
