Space Foundation hits 25th year

       The Westside-based Space Foundation has given the title “The Next Space Age” to its 25th National Space Symposium March 30 to April 2 at the Broadmoor Hotel.
       “With the first half-century of the space age behind us and the industry changing on a global scale, now is the perfect moment to look seriously at the coming 50 years, or 'The Next Space Age,'” said Elliot Pulham, president and CEO of the Space Foundation, 310 S. 14th St.
       According to a press release, more than 7,500 registrants, guests, speakers, exhibitors, and media from across the United States and around the world are expected to attend the symposium. Participants will come from public and private space entities, the commercial space and satellite broadcasting industry; the Department of Defense and military space commands; universities and academia; and the global space industry.
       “Founded in 1983 and celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Space Foundation is an international nonprofit organization advancing space-related endeavors to inspire, enable and propel humanity,” the release states.

       A new small-dog grooming shop, called A Clip in Tyme, has opened at 2122 W. Bijou St.
       With 25 years experience in all, owner Terri Bonner was the original owner of A Best Friend's Grooming and most recently worked at Canine Cottage north of downtown. She also shows dogs.
       The business is open by appointment Tuesday through Friday, according to Bonner.
       The phone is 227-0077.
      
       The Bernideen's shop, 2520 W. Colorado Ave., recently purchased the recipe for the instant tea mix it's been selling through a private-label arrangement for eight years.
       “It's a pretty big deal for us. We're excited about it,” said business owner Bernideen Canfield.
       The opportunity arose after the supplier in Arkansas retired for health reasons, she explained. The labeling for the six varieties will look basically the same as before, although the Bernideen's tea is now being produced in Colorado.
