Communities Rising January 5: New restaurant preparing to open

Enjoying the slush? Watching creeks rise? Thinking about boating out on Lake Indian Valley? What a column? But I thought she was gone. Almost gone.

I’ve been informed that sandbags are available to residents at the Indian Valley Fire Station on Highway 89 just south of Greenville.

I took an exciting drive on Tuesday to Taylorsville and saw a good deal of hustle and bustle going on at the Grizzly Bite. Owners have let me know they plan on a big grand opening, but might have some soft opening opportunities coming up. Currently they are training staff, having equipment delivered, and so forth. They’ve also released a partial menu on their facebook page. It’s looking yummy over there in Taylorsville. How exciting!

One thing Communities Rising residents should think about—especially non-retired residents—is serving on the Dixie Fire Collaborative steering committee as part of new year’s resolutions to be more involved. Many of the DFC committee members are trying to cycle out of the commitment as they’ve been serving since the beginning of the DFC. But now these mostly retirees are wanting to see others also invest time and energy into the civic duties of the post fire rebuild. More information about the responsibilities and duties are available at the www.dixiefirecollaborative.org website. Meetings take place on the third Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Greenville Elementary School cafeteria.
