Angler’s Covey sets June 4 ‘grand’

       The new Angler's Covey store has scheduled a grand opening June 4, according to owner Dave Leinweber. The store will probably open before then - possibly within two weeks - but it's too early to name a certain date, he said.
       Construction has been continuing since March on the 5,000-square-foot, custom-designed building at the northeast corner of 21st Street and Highway 24, which Leinweber says will be the largest of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region.
       The store, which operated at a much smaller Westside location for 18 years, specializes in fly-fishing gear.
       While waiting for the new building, Leinweber continues to operate his business out of a trailer at the location.
       Wong's Kitchen, which has served Chinese food on the Westside for more than a decade, has new ownership and an expanded menu. New owner Phil Tran is offering Vietnamese as well as Chinese cuisine. Wong's is at 1014 S. 21st St., Suite A. The business is open Monday through Saturday. The phone is 473-6707.
       Above All Roofing has moved to 1703 W. Colorado Ave. Owner Brian Burris, a native Westsider with 12 years roofing experience, started the family-owned business two years ago. Above All is open Monday through Friday. The phone is 471-4779.
       Westsider Pam Staley, a sales associate for Usana, recently received a Leadership Award from the national health nutritional company.
       The award recognized Staley's efforts in directing the WE (West End) Usana sales effort. She has been with Usana for two years.
       Jerry Trent, owner of Trent Realty, has combined his business with the Coldwell Banker real estate company and moved his office to 2812 W. Colorado Ave., Suite 201. Trent had previously worked for Remax for 5 years, then started his own company six years ago.
       A benefit for a local pre-med student who hopes to help at an African hospital is scheduled at A Total New You, a spa at 975 Garden of the Gods Road, Sunday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
       The benefit sponsor is WOW, a group of four area civic volunteers.
       For a $20 donation, attendees at the benefit can get facials, massage therapy and energy work or do tai-chi, according to WOW spokesperson Judy Lilly.
       The student is Java Tunson, a Palmer High graduate now studying at the University of Pennsylvania. She hopes to go to Benin, in a war-torn area of Africa, to study and shadow doctors and nurses in the Catholic St. John of God Hospital for a month.
