"Tiger" George Funny is looking for older folks who want to remain active, have some fun and learn something new.

Tiger George's Taekwondo is perhaps best known for teaching children the benefits of the physical and mental discipline that is Taekwondo. But the school also caters to adults.

Baby boomers are getting older, but also want to remain more active. Tiger sums it up this way, "We can not stop the calendar from marching ahead at what seems to be a faster and faster pace, however, recent studies have shown that we can alter the rate at which our bodies progress through life...regular exercise incorporated into our lifestyle can improve our heart and respiratory function, lower our blood pressure, increase our strength, improve bone density, flexibility and quicken reaction time. It can also reduce body fat, increase muscle mass and reduce susceptibility to depression and disease."

...and there's the whole self-defense thing.

For more information about current enrollment specials specifically for adults over 50, contact Tiger George's Taekwondo at 719-390-5551 or visit them at 346 Main Street in Security.

Phil Rash, owner of the Dairy Queen on Hwy 85/87 in Fountain, reports that they'll soon be offering Orange Julius in addition to their grill and chill Dairy Queen menu. He hopes to be serving the frothy, all natural fruit drinks and premium fruit smoothies by the 1st of August.

Dairy Queen actually purchased Orange Julius more than 20 years ago, but only recently began a big push to combine the line with Dairy Queen franchise store.

"They made it easy." says Rash, "All we had to pay for was the equipment, and they got that configured to where it only takes up about 4 extra feet of counter space."

Rash says he may hire 1-2 new employees per shift, depending on demand, to handle the station. He has other improvements and even expansion planned for the current location, perhaps later this year.

Dairy Queen, Fountain is located at 7010 S. Hwy 85/87 in Fountain just south of Fontaine Blvd at the intersection of Carson Blvd and Hwy 85/87.
