Press Release (Ybarra’s Boxing Gym)

This weekend the 2012 Colorado State Golden Gloves Tournament was held in Aurora, Colorado, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.  Ybarras Boxing Club had two junior boxers representing its club.   LuisJoe Ybarra Jr. is a fifth grader at French Elementary in Security, Colorado.  LuisJoe won his third straight, Colorado State Golden Glove title in the 11-12 yr old 80lbs weight division by defeating Xavier Baca from Pueblo, Colorado.  LuisJoe Ybarra Jr, was also the recipient of the 2012 Colorado Golden Glove Outstanding Junior Boxer award.

When asked about how he felt  winning three straight titles, you could see his face glowing with pride and joy. “I just love to box” he said, “I think I was born to do this. It comes naturally to me. I feel good in the ring. I'm going back to the gym and start practicing for the National Junior Golden Gloves in Mesquite NV.”  They start in mid July 2012. In the first week of August it’s off to Kansas City Mo, for the Ringside World Championships where LuisJoe placed 2nd in 2011.   

Ybarra’s second Champion is Luis Ramirez, an 8 year old 3rd grader from Stratton Meadows Elementary. This was his first Colorado State  Golden Glove Tournament. Luis defeated  Jake Santistevan, from North Denver Tigers in the 70lbs 8 year old weight class. He too was excited to win his first Colorado State Golden Gloves title. Luis trains with LuisJoe Ybarra Jr, to gain more experience in the gym. They have become good friends in and out of the gym. Congratulations to both of them.

Dr. Glen A. Noble, DDS, is hoping to translate the success he’s had in his dental practice to a successful commercial property project. He has a plan to develop the area around his current office buildiing on the Mesa in Fountain. Dr. Noble is also the owner of a car sales business called MyAutoEnvy.com. In 2007 he purchased the land at Fountain Mesa Rd and Cross Creek, in Fountain, Colorado, built a new dental office and relocated his practice there from S. Santa Fe Ave.

Dr. Noble reports that even during this tough economic period, the move has paid off in spades. Gross revenues have nearly tripled since 2007, and he credits the new location for much of that success. Now, he’s purchased the land surrounding his building and is in the process of developing it into commercial and professional office space.

Part of the plan is to build himself a larger facility for his own practice and lease out the existing one. The concept plan calls for up to 3 more buildings including an office building, retail and restaurant.

Dr. Noble is not the only one who has confidence in the potential of the Fountain Mesa area. Culvers (the butter burger folks) will be constructing a new location just north of his existing building, Denny’s is going in across the street, Arby’s will also be locating nearby and there may even be a hotel or two down the road.

If you’re interested in the location, you can get complete packet of information, including demographic information, project description and maps by calling Fountain Dental Center at 719-392-5500.

Bio Pappel, Mexico’s largest paper producer as well as recycler, recently celebrated the opening of its Colorado Springs collection center at 3240 Astrozon Blvd, just north of Drennan and west of Academy, a 31,000 square foot facility owned by WKB, LLC.

Bio Pappel collects cardboard and paper, which it uses to produce its own 100% recycled and recyclable, non-chlorine bleached, biodegradable paper. The raw materials from Colorado Springs are shipped to and used by their plant in Prewitt, New Mexico.

The facility accepts material from individuals as well as companies. Cardboard is currently paying .035 cents/lb and office paper .025 cents/lb. They also accept newspaper, but there’s no cash payment for it. For the individual it’s really more about putting waste paper to good use instead of adding it to a landfill. Companies who produce large quantities of waste can not only feel good about recycling, but also save good money on disposal fees.

The facility is open from 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday. To set up a commercial account, contact Recycling Coordinator, Marlene Romero-Phillips at 719-322-6785.

Encyclopedia Brittanica is the latest hard copy publication to throw in the towel after nearly 250 years of continuous publication.

Before the Internet became a widespread phenomenon, encyclopedias were a treasure trove of valuable information. They were the ultimate quick reference source. The Encyclopedia Brittanica was published every two years. A complete 32 volume set could set you back over $1,000.

These days, with information on nearly everything available at your fingertips for next to nothing, and even the online version of the Brittanica only going for $70, the hard-copy just couldn't compete. The 2010 edition will be the last. Once the remaining copies are sold, the company will focus on digital reference and learning products.

I guess the good news is, if you have a set, hold on to it. It may well be a valuable collectors item one day.
