Roger Myers has been turning wrenches since he was 16 years old. He was a mechanic and instructor in the Army and afterwards worked for a number of companies, including Firestone, LubeStop, Auto Tech and more. He’s worked at and managed shops for more than 17 years.



He and his son Jesse (who’s been a mechanic himself for 2 years) had been talking about opening a place of their own. They looked at a site in Pueblo, then heard that the former AAMCO/Muffler Masters location in Security-Widefield was available. Roger has lived in the Fountain Valley area since 1992. He and his wife Raquel have 6 children, Jessy, Casey, Roger, Issac, Daniel and Jaquelyn. Roger liked the idea of having a shop in Security-Widefield. They closed the deal on the 5-lift, 6-bay shop in January and had their “soft opening” Monday, March 9.

A Good Mechanic offers general automotive repair and diagnostics. Roger is ASE Master Tech and Advanced Engine Performance certified and is well aware that his success depends on great customer service and satisfied customers.

A Good Mechanic is located at 1 Widefield Blvd, on the corner of Fontaine and Widefield Blvd. You can reach them at 719-390-2988. Hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 5:30 and from 8am to 5pm Saturdays.

They're open for business as of today and they’ll be doing a Grand Opening on March 28th.

C.B. and Potts Restaurant and Taproom invited some people to a pre-opening this weekend to help prepare staff and generate a little buzz (no pun intended) around the opening of their new location at 261 Jaycee Case Place in Colorado Springs. That’s next door to Bass Pro Shop and Bourbon Brothers. They’re open for real as of today. 

C.B. and Potts started in Fort Collins in 1974 as a Deluxe Tavern. They now have 7 locations in Colorado and in 1996 they started brewing their own craft beers. 

C.B. and Potts is family oriented, casual dining as well as a first class craft brewer, with over 100 medals from institutions including the NABA and GABF. 

For more information visit www.cbpotts.com. They’re open daily from 11am to midnight. You can also contact them at 719-481-9034.

Basic Meanings - Meanings of the Taegeuk Forms

Forms, or Poomses in Korean language, are a series of defending and attacking movements performed against imaginary opponents in a set pattern. Through the practice of forms, students come to learn the applications of various techniques of Tae Kwon Do. Forms serve a multi-dimensional role, aiding in development and refinement of coordination, balance, timing, breath control and rhythm, all of which are essential skills to the Tae Kwon Do student.

The World Tae Kwon Do Federation has 8 colored belt forms and 9 black belt forms. The colored belt forms are all numbered one to eight and are called Taegeuk.

Palgwe is the fundamental oriental philosophy dealing with man and the universe. It speaks about the duals that exist in nature such as good and evil, fire and water, heaven and earth, peace and conflict, etc.

Taegeuk - Tae in this context means bigness and Geuk means eternity.

Taegeuk then is that which is the essence of everything, it has no beginning and no end.

Each form is a combination of techniques of block and attack performed consecutively while moving in certain directions. These are a series of forms designed to correspond with each learning level from beginner to advance. The proper way to learn and practice Taegeuk Forms is to first know the name of the form, then determine the three components of each movement in the order of:
    1.    Direction
    2.    Stance
    3.    Technique of block or attack

Taegeuk 1 (IL JANG) - A series of actions expressing the KEON principle of Palgwe. KEON represents heaven and light, which is the beginning of everything.

Taegeuk 2 (YI JANG) - A series of actions expressing the TAE principle of Palgwe. TAE represents joyfulness so this should be performed gently but firmly. This principle teaches us that mind must remain firm, but outwardly we must appear gentle.

Taegeuk 3 (SAM JANG) - A series of actions expressing the RI principle of Palgwe. RI represents fire and the sun. Fire gives us warmth and the sun gives us light, and both represent hope. It should be performed rhythmically, with some outbursts of energy and with passion.

Taegeuk 4 (SA JANG) - A series of actions expressing the JIN principle of Palgwe. JIN represents thunder. Thunder and lightening are sources of fear and danger. This principle teaches us that we must remain calm and brave when faced with danger and fear.

Taegeuk 5 (OH JANG) - A series of actions expressing the SEON principle of Palgwe. SEON represents the wind. While wind can be terrible as in a tornado, the nature of wind is gentle. This principle teaches us that we must remain humble in mind, and only act forcefully when we must.

Taegeuk 6 (YOOK JANG) - A series of actions expressing the GAM principle of Palgwe. GAM represents water and the principle teaches us that we must proceed with confidence when facing difficulty and hardship if we are to overcome them.

Taegeuk 7 (CHIL JANG) - A series of actions expressing the GAN principle of Palgwe. GAN represents the Mountain. It teaches us that we must attain the stability of the mountain. We must not act in a hasty manner and should know when to proceed and when to stop.

Taegeuk 8 (PAL JANG) - A series of actions expressing the GON principle of Palgwe, which is defined as the quality of being receptive. GON represents the earth, which is the cradle of life. It is the earth that embodies the creative forces of heaven.

Summary:
•Taegeuk 1 (IL JANG): Keon - Symbolizes heaven and light and has 18 movements.
•Taegeuk 2 (YI JANG): Tae - Symbolizes joyfulness and has 18 movements.
•Taegeuk 3 (SAM JANG): Ri - Symbolizes fire and sun and has 20 movements.
•Taegeuk 4 (SA JANG): Jin - Symbolizes thunder and has 20 movements.
•Taegeuk 5 (OH JANG): Seon – Symbolizes wind and has 20 movements.
•Taegeuk 6 (YOOK JANG): Gam - Symbolizes water and has 23 movements.
•Taegeuk 7 (CHIL JANG): Gan – Symbolizes the mountain and has 25 movements.
•Taegeuk 8 (PAL JANG): Gon – Symbolizes the earth and has 24 movements.

Easy Street Designs

Neighborhood Values direct mail postcards

The Neighborhood Values postcard products take advantage of the U.S. Postal Service's Every Door Direct program. Cards are mailed without addresse on them, to entire carrier routes, rather than to a list. This results in big savings on postage, which we can combine with design, printing and delivery to the post office to provide a very affordable, convenient means for businesses to reach nearby customers with full color direct mail pieces.

.

Singles - 50 cents each including postage, layout,

printing and delivery to post office

 

For a single company mailing the ad space on each side is 9.5" x 6.5" . When you factor in both sides, it's essentially a full page of

full color ad space on 100lb gloss cover stock. This allows for graphics, photo, information, qr codes and coupons if you like.  Cost is just 50 cents per piece, which includes layout if needed, full color digital printing, postage and delivery of you cards to the appropriate post office.

We'll help you select the carrier route(s) as well. Cards must be mailed within the Colorado Springs, Security, Widefield or Fountain areas. Minimum for the Every Door Direct program is 200. However you need to select entire carrier routes, which are typically more like 500-600 addresses each. Once your card is designed and approved by you, we'll print it, bundle it according to USPS specs, attach the appropriate paperwork and confirm with you delivery to the post office, Payment is required before production. Allow 1-3 days from proof approval to drop at post office.

To get started on your Neighborhood Values mailing, call Easy Street Designs at 719-390-5080, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

two weeks we select an area that encompasses  1,500 - 2,500 residential addresses to mail. These postcards have six full color ads (3 on each side) measuring 3.75" x 4.25". These cards are also printed on 100lb gloss cover stock and measure 12"x6" in total. The sides are printed upside down from one another so that coupons (if any) will have minimal impact on a coupon on the opposite side.

If you're a local independent business person, crafter or artist who would like to show off your wares, Her Story Cafe can help. Her Story Cafe, at 2356 S. Academy Blvd in Colorado Springs, teams up with a local entrepreneur each Saturday. From 1pm to 3pm they can set up a display, offer samples and show and tell folks about their business or their art.

There's no charge for the space, but owner Liz Rozenbaum expects participants to promote their event a couple of weeks out. It's a great way for others to promote themselves and it helps generate traffic and introduce new people to the Cafe.

This past Saturday, Amanda Gentile of Palace Portraits and Photography was on hand as part of a "mini glam session', which included lunch, make-up and a photo shoot.

They're currently booked through March, but if you're interested in booking a Saturday, visit Liz at Her Story Cafe at 2356 S. Academy Blvd (Astrozon and Academy) Tuesday - Friday 7 am - 3 pm
Saturdays 8 am - 3 pm.
