Stellar Care and Services LLC has served individuals with developmental disabilities across the state of Colorado for over 10 years, helping them to be active members of their community. However, statistics show that the highest unemployed U.S. citizens (at 92 percent) are those who are challenged with developmental disabilities. Stellar Care is optimistic in trying to change this recurring trend by expanding their mission to include employment opportunities in their new drive-thru coffee shop.  At STELLAR JAVA LLC, individuals with developmental disabilities can have meaningful employment and learn basic skills such as customer service, cashiering, and making the best coffees and smoothies in the area.

A Grand Opening celebration of STELLAR JAVA will be held on Thursday, July 19, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The new drive-thru kiosk is located at 1807 N. Union Blvd. in Colorado Springs, next to the Neighborhood Wal-Mart and the Rampart Supply Co.

For more information, call (719) 344-8931.

1807 N. Union Blvd. C/S, 80909

All are invited to stop by, grab a cup of joe, and support STELLAR JAVA’s mission:  providing a job opportunity to individuals with developmental disabilities, and making everyone a “Meaningful Cup…Meaningful Day.”

The City of Fountain has begun construction of a new railroad crossing off Hwy 85 near Fountain Creek Regional Park. A later phase of the project will connect Hwy 85 with C & S Rd and Fountain Mesa Road. 

 

The crossing is needed in part because the crossing at Mesa Rd. will eventually be closed when Hwy 85 is widened.

Ent Credit Union took the top spot in Colorado on Forbes’ inaugural “Best-In-State” Banks and Credit Unions list.

For the list, Forbes partnered with Statista, which surveyed more than 25,000 customers in the U.S. for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships.

“The banks and credit unions were rated on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice),” Forbes said. “Credit unions, which are member-owned financial cooperatives, outpace banks with an average score of 80 versus 75.2 for banks.”

Ent Credit Union scored 86.77 and was followed by Credit Union of Colorado (score: 80.79), Public Service Credit Union (score: 78.57), Security Service Federal Credit Union (score: 77.98) and Bellco Credit Union (score: 77.31), respectively.

Forbes noted that Navy Federal Credit Union, which has a presence in 30 states, was the only credit union eliminated for its reach.

Peakview Windows and Siding is now open at their new location on South Academy Blvd, just south of the KFC.

They had been located at the Fountain Valley Shopping Center off Hwy 85 in Fountain. That center is slated for major remodel and partial demolition sometime within the next year, so they needed a new home.

The new location has more space and is easy to get to from just about anywhere. You'll find them at 3265 S. Academy Blvd, south of Hancock on the east side of Academy.

They're open from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday (closed for lunch from 12:30 to 1:30). You can always call them at 719-393-PEAK (7325) and visit them on the web at www.PeakViewWindows.com.
