Remember SHAKEY'S Pizza Parlor?

If you're under 55 you could probably drive right by the labor center on Fillmore without realizing it was the social center of the Boomer generation in the early 1960's.  SHAKEY'S Pizza Parlor was a symbol of a simpler, more innocent America.  Looking back on it's simplicity and naivete I still have a hard time believing it really happened.

"Old Shakey" Bob Lakely ( A Name To Recommend....from singing commercial) established a nationwide chain of pizza parlors which featured 800…

Newtown Tragedy...How Do We Move Forward?

http://www.viviankirkfield.wordpress.com,newtown ct For twenty-five years, we lived in Watertown, a small Connecticut town just down the road from Newtown.

One doesn’t have to be a parent to weep for those young lives lost.  One doesn’t have to be a family member or friend to mourn the adults who were killed.

There have been many tributes to the lives so tragically lost in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Here’s one…

Fresh Ink: Fresh Air! Don't like what you're smelling? Check your Cabin Filter!

Many people are not even aware that their car has a cabin filter, let alone know what it does.  Most cars built in the past 15 years have a filter, usually located under the car dash. The sole purpose of this cabin filter is to remove the dust and pollen from the air entering your heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system before you breathe it, and help to eliminate noxious odors.  It serves the same function as the furnace filter in your home. 



Not only can a dirty cabin…

Happy Holidays from Small Businesses

As we approach the holiday season it affords us a chance to look back on the last year. No matter how you celebrate the holiday season, we here at CBO encourage you to take a moment to reflect back on all the good things in your life.

The media seems to like us to focus on tragedies and the less of humanity. It is our belief that it is up to each of us to choose what we want to focus on each year.

Life gives us so much to enjoy and be thankful for. (One of them is good…

Facing Challenges, St. Mary's Philanthropic Club Rises to Continue Its Work

The Youth Philanthropic Club at St. Mary’s High School is at a crossroads. Planned changes—in the reduction of matching funds—and the tough economic situation facing the nation have converged to create a challenge for the club.

 

“It’s a transition year,” said Tena Jelinek, YPC faculty adviser. “Penny Wars just finished and this year our numbers from that were down. We might have to rethink it. It’s been very popular in the past, but we’re looking at other ways of…

Angels among us

As the colored lights go on up and down my street, miles of garland and tinsel add sparkle to the tree in the window and carols are sung by fresh faced children in shiny new shoes, I reflect back to Christmas last year, and remember my dad’s last days.

Dad died shortly before Christmas 2011. It wasn’t , though, until after the crowds and glitter and piles of wrapping paper cleared away; after the lights dimmed and the chorus of music became a soft melody; that I was able to thank God…
