Welcome Back

Remember last year when I mentioned in this very space how time flies when you’re having fun and that it didn’t seem like a whole year has passed since our last annual issue of The Silver Pages? Well, I’m repeating that message again because it’s still so true. The years are piling up like back issues of The Best of Times, and the flow of history is beginning to flood by like the mighty Mississippi. I don’t know if I should be worried by all that, but at least our levees are holding. So far, so good. Speaking of holding, you are holding the most valuable and important annual published in all of Louisiana. Really. Thousands of readers will SAVE THIS ISSUE and consult it year-round. We are proud to serve our community in this way and thank you for all your kind comments about our work. We welcome your feedback and encourage you to let us know how we can make it better. Enjoy the issue! -- Tina Calligas, editor of The Best of Times & Silver Pages THE FINE PRINT: Copyright © 2009 by TBT Multimedia, LLC, all rights reserved.

Brock’s Collision Repair Center values their clients, their employees and the community, and feel responsibility to each. In keeping with these ideals, we are proud to announce “We’ve Gone Green”! At all three Brock’s Collision Repair Centers, we are committed to promoting a “greener” Shreveport/Bossier. Each of our stores has replaced the traditional solvent-based paints and coatings with low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) waterborne basecoat. By using the more environmentally friendly products to refinish our clients’ vehicles, we are able to significantly reduce the emission of VOCs into the atmosphere. This change not only improves the quality of our air, it also contributes to a healthier working environment, and provides a safer place for us to conduct business with our clients. VOCs are chemical compounds commonly found in paint coatings and cleaning products, and when released into the atmosphere, contribute to the creation of smog and ozone pollution. By switching to a low VOC waterborne basecoat, these emissions can be reduced by up to 80%. This is a major technological advancement that creates a “win-win” situation all around. Waterborne basecoat is the latest coating system used by manufacturers to create the color on vehicles today. This is the first product to be as close to factory paint that has EVER been available to collision repair shops before. Using waterborne color toners in our centers affords us the ability to achieve more exact color matches and shorter repair completion times. We are serious about being a “green” business; so we are transitioning to paperless working files, recycling parts instead of sending to a landfill, using biodegradable paper cups instead of plastic, and using environment friendly cleaning products. This is our home, and we believe in what we are doing to help make it a cleaner place in which to live. We invite all businesses to join us in this worthy endeavor.
