TIC, Kiewit merger still in works for end of year
TIC's merger with an Omaha, Neb.-based firm is still on track to close by the end of the year, TIC Corporate Relations Director Gary Bennett said. Steamboat Springs-based TIC, a heavy industrial contractor, is slated to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Kiewit.
When the merger became public in September, the companies said no major changes were planned. Bennett said nothing has changed since that report.
Boathouse Pub kitchen set to reopen Thursday
The Boathouse Pub's kitchen is slated to open Thursday after a remodel, general manager Joe Schuetz said. The kitchen was too small, he said, so the restaurant at 609 Yampa St. shut it down in late October. The remodeled room has additional capacity, Schuetz said.
"We extended it out about 5 feet in one direction and about 3 in another direction," he said. "We lost six seats in the remodel but gained a lot of capability in the kitchen."
Wing-Time sponsors celiac disease group
Buffalo wing sauce manufacturer Wing-Time has become an official sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation, according to a news release. The foundation offers support services to its members, who require a gluten-free lifestyle.
"All of Wing-Time sauces are naturally gluten-free, making the partnership with CDF an ideal and natural fit," Terry Brown, Wing-Time founder, owner and sauce creator, said in the release.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that requires lifelong avoidance of gluten, the release stated. People with the disease must avoid gluten proteins found in wheat and related grains, rye and barley, which is toxic to them and causes nutritional deficiencies.

Curves' new location now open on Lincoln Avenue
Women's exercise center Curves has opened a new location in western Steamboat Springs, at 2432 Lincoln Ave. next to West End Liquor.
"It's going real well," said Paula Ford, one of the women who helps run the center. "We doubled our membership in October, and we keep getting new members. It's location, location, location."
The Curves location has about 77 members, Ford said. The women lost their spot on Yampa Street last summer and struggled for months to find an affordable location. The new building gives them frontage on U.S. Highway 40, and the signs have brought people in, Ford said.
A group of women runs the Curves as a co-op. They're running a special through Monday, giving away a free month to women who join for a year. Curves can be reached at 870-7877.
