Let Quality Aire, Inc.

keep your air clean!

lakeshore chronicle | herald times reporter

Welcome to Quality Aire, Inc. the area leader for indoor air quality. We offer air duct cleaning and dryer vent cleaning services to Sheboygan and Manitowoc Counties. Dirty air ducts and dryer vents can pose serious health and fire hazards, as well as substantially impact energy efficiency. Left neglected, air duct build-up circulates more dust, pollen, animal hair, microbes and other contaminants into breathable air inside. Likewise, dryer vent build-up reduces air flow, causes overheating, and is a common cause of fires. These conditions can strain your HVAC and dryer vent systems, causing them to work harder and lose energy efficiency. We live in a world where healthy living has become a way of life. We diet and exercise to make ourselves feel better. Yet the most overlooked issue is the air that we breathe. The Environmental Protection Agency claims that indoor air has been found to be more polluted than outdoor air. Now consider on an average people spend 90% of their time indoors‌‌The facts can be quite alarming.

ATVs can be hazardous to operate. For your safety always wear a helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride on paved surfaces or public roads. Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV; never engage in stunt driving; riding and alcohol/drugs don’t mix and could cause injury or even death. Avoid excessive speeds and be particularly careful on difficult terrain. The Arctic Cat ATV may not be ridden by anyone under 16 years of age. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders take a training course, and that they read and understand their owner’s manual before operation. Along with concerned conservationists everywhere, Arctic Cat urges you to “Tread Lightly” on public and private lands. Ride only on designated areas or trails. Preserve your future riding opportunities by showing respect for the environment, local laws, and the rights of others when riding. For safety or training information in the U.S., call the ATV Safety Institute at (800) 887-2887. ©2007 Arctic Cat Sales Inc., ®TM Trademarks of Arctic Cat Inc., Thief River Falls, MN 56701.

Thoughts on Turning 60 . . .

In 1951, local attorney Fred G. Dicke saw a need for a communityrun retirement home along with a remarkable opportunity when the county built a new health care center vacating the old county mental hospital. With a group of community leaders, he formed a local board under the name Shady Lane, Inc. and converted the former hospital into a retirement home. By 1971, changes in health care trends and technology made it clear that the old building was no longer suitable. It was razed and in its

place a new four-story building, now home to Shady Lane Nursing Care Center, was constructed. Finally in 1993, Shady Lane purchased the entire complex with its extensive, manicured grounds from the county and added Laurel Grove Assisted Living along with the gardens. Sixty years after our founding, we continue to evolve. Challenging health care demands have been met with the addition of private rooms, suites and apartments, satellite kitchens and meaningful activities for residents. As a not-for-profit organization, we are committed to providing quality at a reasonable cost. Today, our board of directors continues to be comprised of local leaders to whom we are ever grateful for their leadership, love of our community, and especially their vision. They listen to the community, understand the needs and take action to meet them.

As the Baby boom begins turning 65, we enter our own sixth decade and, like most who reach a new mile stone, look back to contemplate where we have been. Aging well means being adaptive to new challenges and applying the wisdom gained over the years. And, in considering where we have been, we also take a greater interest in our future.

Your Local Hand Made Shop Accents ‘n Spice Celebrating 11 Years in 2011. This year we celebrate our 11th year in business at Accents ‘n Spice. How did we get where we are today? It hasn’t always been easy. We thought there had to be a better way to market our wood crafts other than attending craft shows and fairs. Besides, we weren’t getting any younger…It seemed like our wood products were getting heavier, and loading and unloading the inventory was becoming a tougher task. We set out looking for a shop, but found that the ones that had high traffic also had high price tags. What we found instead was a quaint, old tavern that was vacant, located about eight miles from Manitowoc, Wisconsin and approximately 20 miles from Green Bay, in the village of Francis Creek. That left us with a new challenge ahead of us– how to market what we had and make it easy for customers to find us. To keep our start-up costs low, we set up all our old displays and the card tables that we had been using at craft shows and opened our doors on April 1, 2000. With determination and patience, little by little we replaced all our old displays with new. This venture started out as a family affair and still is. My very talented husband, Dale, is in charge of all of the woodworking. My daughter Janice contributed the spices, soup bases and dip mixes to add a unique twist to our inventory. My daughter Joy takes care of a little bit of everything and steps in wherever needed. I handle all the handpainting and put the finishing touches on the products before they go out on the floor. We work with a few local crafters to add some variety to our shop. We like to refer to ourselves as Outside of Store “The Hand Made Shop.” 80% of our inventory is hand crafted. Although we are located in the country, and the weather has a definite impact on customers visiting our store, we use that forced downtimes to create more product. We strive to keep our prices as low as possible and we believe this helps our customers coming back time and time again. What we have in mind for the future is to create some outdoor displays for our planters, benches and yard accents, since we’re full to the brim on the inside. We’d love to have you stop in and check Accents ‘n Spice’s many one-of-a-kind crafts. Our hours year round are Tuesday-Friday, 9am-5pm and Saturday, 9am-3pm. Take a little road trip and stop in to check us out. We are always adding new items so our customers have a reason to come back. Spice Wall We think you’ll enjoy our unique variety of products and crafts and our friendly service! - Karen Koeser, Proprietor, Accents ‘n Spice
