Dave DeRose, president of Masterworks Mechanical, was recently recognized in a nationally distributed trade magazine, published by the National Comfort Institute, as member of the month.

In the article, the magazine recognized DeRose’s success not only as having “excellence in the air conditioning, heating and plumbing industry,” but it went on to say that he has brought “about much good in the region,” referring to his philanthropic activities.

The article describes also a training DeRose organized, which was partially funded by a grant arranged by DeRose and Colorado Northwestern Community College, to provide training on carbon monoxide testing and combustion efficiency adjustment.

To congratulate DeRose on this honor, stop by Masterworks Mechanical at 461 Yampa Ave., or give him a call at 824-4840.

New owners take over at Imagemakers

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Shayla and Cory Hixson have bought Imagemakers Salon from Susan Johnston.

Shayla said Johnston has been in the business for 36 years and owned the salon since 1997. Johnston will continue to work a couple of days a week at the salon.

Shayla graduated in 2003 from Moffat County High School, attended the University of Northern Colorado, and received a degree in criminal justice. She then moved back to Craig and graduated from cosmetology school in December.

Rather than just working at a salon, she decided to invest money into owning the business.

Shayla has changed the name to Blush Le Salon, and is planning to update the interior, as well as change the tanning bed to spray tan in coming months.

She plans also to offer more variety of hair care products and is now offering sugaring, which a form is of hair removal.

To set an appointment, call 824-6488, or visit the downtown location, 458 Yampa Ave.
