Delivery services bring more than fast food to busy people By AMY SORTER Business/Entertainment Editor It's early evening and Karl Ives, a resident of The Colony, is discuss- ing entrepreneurs and business own- ership. He looks like one of those suc- cessful entrepreneurs: He is clothed in well-dressed casual, and it seems he might spend a lot of time in a high- fashion men's store. But according to Ives, almost ev- erything he wears came through his home shopping delivery service, Ives International. "My socks are Burlington, my shoes are Bass and my watch is a Seiko watch," he said. "I think my shirt is the only thing I'm wearing I actually bought in a store." However, he added, Ives International (and its parent company, Tennessee-based Rea International) does offer that par- ticular Izod shirt. Ives, with his wife JoAnn Ives, are tapping into a new trend known as "interactive distributorship" or "virtual marketing." The concept is th^t a person can pretty much order anything fro...

The Fourth of July is the perfect time to remember, recognize and honor the freedoms that allow us to live like we do, that allow us to speak freely; change the personnel of our government, if we choose to do so, non-vio- lently; and take responsibility for our own health, wealth and well-being. On this day, we should especially give thanks that as Americans, we: Have the right to vote for our elected officials and many state and local policies, even though many of us don't exercise that right. Have the right to express our opinions in a variety of venues - through spoken word, newspapers, radio, television, essays and the Internet - with- out fear of le...

" Mencius (3727-2897 B.C.), Chinese Philosopher Once upon a time, there was a land. It was a place barren of people, product, and riches. It had no strength within its vast territories, and what few humans that crossed about it were nomadic hunters and gatherers. Its regions displayed various features from rocky soil, mountains, vast grassy plains, a gulf shore and piney timber forests. Water starved in its western half, its rain- fall supported only hardy grasses, but it was a range filled with millions of herbivore creatures. In its eastern half, black clay soil, ce- dar and pine forests grew among rivers and creeks exhibiting a var...

If they didn't, the new course for The Colony's traditional In- dependence Day run might tempt them to veer off and take a dip in Lewisville Lake or practice their putting. Between 200 and 300 runners from The Colony and up to 40 other communities are expected to participate in the Liberty 5K, which for the first time will be run on Stewart Peninsula. Previously, the race took place in the center of the city. "We're excited about the new course," said Don Beckel, the only race director the Liberty 5K has ever had. "There are many views of the lake; we think it's going to be a lot more scenic. It's a relatively flat course, so runners should get some pretty good times." The...

Supporters of the so-called "Penny for Progress" tax lobbied fe- rociously for it, claiming it would help attract more economic develop- ment to The Colony. Meanwhile, those who had their doubts wondered exactly where all that tax money - all $800,000 dollars per year of it - would go. After voters approved the tax, controversy surrounding the issue grew. The 4A Economic Develop- ment Board needed money to know what to do with money collected from taxes. City Council at first balked, then relented. Then the city's high-priced economic development director, Betty McKean, quit amid charges of power struggles. With the bang surrounding that tax since is passage, it's i...

The Colony Courier This Paper is Recyclable Wednesday, July 8,1998 THE COURIER'S OPINION Council prudent in suit settlement City Council's blockbuster decision on Monday night to end the liquor- store lawsuits by granting Centennial, Goody-Goody and Office Creek Corporation specific use permits to build their stores was an instance in which public servants put aside personal agendas for the good of the city. As was expressed in this newspaper's editorial of June 24, The Colony was facing almost assured financial peril were it to continue with its fight to prevent liquor stores in the 121 corridor. This city could not have afforded $5 million in damages from the Centennial lawsuit, much less $15 million in triple damages, plus whatever damages Goody-Goody and Office Creek Cor- poration might have decided to seek. Then, there were the rumblings of a class-action suit against Council members who voted against granting SUPs. Now, the issue seems to have been taken out of the courts. Thi...
