Peerless Expands to Iola

Governor Laura Kelly Announces Peerless Products Expansion to Create Over 100 Jobs in Iola

~ Peerless Expansion Represents Largest Job Announcement in Allen County Since 1994~

IOLA – Governor Laura Kelly today celebrated the announcement of Peerless Products, Inc., purchasing a 150,000-square-foot facility in Iola to expand its production capability.

Peerless estimates the expansion will create 100 to 120 new full-time jobs in Iola over the next five years, with a capital investment of $10.35 million.

“Peerless is a fantastic, homegrown Kansas company with a long history in Fort Scott. I appreciate its leadership team recognizing all that Iola and the entire Southeast Kansas region has to offer, and for choosing to expand in Allen County,” Governor Kelly said. “With our engaged team at the Kansas Department of Commerce, my administration will continue to identify new and dynamic business opportunities, build relationships, and support further economic projects in Allen County and across our state.”

Governor Kelly joined Scheduling and Purchasing Manager for Peerless Products Josh Granere, Iola Mayor Jonathan Wells, Thrive Allen County President and CEO Lisse Regher, and Secretary of Commerce David Toland for today’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Kansas-based Peerless produces high-performance architectural aluminum windows and doors for new construction, replacement and historical construction for high-rise and institutional buildings. The expansion of its operations will allow the company to begin to diversify its product line by moving into commercial windows.

“I’m honored to help celebrate a significant economic development win for our state—one that marks the beginning of a new chapter for Peerless Products and the workforce in Iola and Southeast Kansas,” Secretary Toland said. “Congratulations to Peerless and to our local partners on making this ambitious vision for growth a reality.”

“With our continued growth in Fort Scott, where we currently have 400 employees, we needed to find additional space for the creation and production of our new G800 product line that we believe will be a leader in commercial low-rise windows,” President of Peerless Products Coby Jones said. “We pride ourselves in being best in class, and we intend to continue and build upon that reputation in Iola.”

The State of Kansas, City of Iola and Allen County partnered to secure the Peerless expansion project, which is the largest job announcement in Allen County since 1994.

Family of Eight Moves Into the Beaux-Arts Centre

The Bowman Family moved into the Beaux-Arts Centre. Submitted photo.
Before March 2020, the Bowman family was quite content living in North Kansas City in a wonderful neighborhood, Lorina Bowman said.  “I accidentally came across the Beaux-Arts Centre on Zillow ( a real estate website) and saw a lot of potential. “
The Beaux-Arts Centre, 102 S. National Ave, is next door to the post office.
“When my husband saw it, he was also excited,” she said.
They set up several appointments with the owners to view the property.
” We tried to talk ourselves out of it because the building needs to be updated quite a bit, but every con was able to be twisted into a pro,” she said.  They prayed and feel God led them to purchase the property.

The family plans to open a museum with interactive components and call it Exploratorium.

“It’s always been a dream of ours to open a business that would incorporate all of my family’s hobbies and talents,” Lorina said.  “The fact that my family is able to live on the top floor while we build the museum is the only way our vision is possible.”

“We will have fun, unique exhibits that all ages will enjoy, such as; Barbie, Model Trains, Lego, and more,” Lorina said. “We will have play structures and other hands-on activities. The building will also include a gift shop and eventually a snack bar. We are most excited about our classroom which is where we will host workshops and clubs to really get the community involved in teaching, learning and exploring new hobbies and talents.”

The Bowman Family is comprised of Johnathan, a computer programmer who works from home since leaving California in June 2017. “He is excited to learn new handyman skills as he tackles different projects in the building,”  Lorina said.
Lorina is a stay-at-home mom but loves to make crafts to sell at fairs and is excited to have a full-time gift shop to sell all the creations she’s made over the years, she said.
She’s also happy she can put on events to “appease her overzealous party planning passion,” she said.
Marshall is 15  years old and enjoys creating Electonic Dance Music on the computer and building weapons out of polyvinyl chloride pipe.
Vivian is 13 and loves Harry Potter, Legos, and reading.
Theodore is almost 11 and a master at creating obstacle courses and unique games for his siblings to play, Lorina said.
Lawrence is 9 and can fold origami for hours and keep his family laughing with his humor, she said.
 Adelaide is 4 and does her best to keep up with the rest of the family, she said.
The youngest is  Harriet, 2, who has the cutest smile and curls, Lorina said.
The timeline for the project is undetermined.
“The timeline really depends on the community,” Lorina said. ” My husband and my dad have been doing a lot of the projects tackled so far. If left to our own devices we could eventually open our doors to the public but it would be years in the making. Why wait that long? “
“With enough community support through funding and volunteer labor we could open as early as next spring and then ALL generations could come together to enjoy our Exploratorium,” she said.
Follow the project on Facebook @ Fort Scott Exploratorium to find out how you can help and see what they have accomplished and what currently working on.

Advanced Aesthetics Center Opens

Dr. John Fox MD and Mary Beth Newkirk APRN, FNP-C are the owners of NewFox Wellness. Submitted photo.
Dr. John Fox and Nurse Practitioner Mary Beth Newkirk have partnered to open a new med/spa business called NewFox Wellness.
It is located at 1118 S. Clark, Fort Scott inside the Re:Freshed Salon and Spa, just off 12th Street and Hwy. 69.
NewFox Wellness is located in the Five-Corners Strip Mall off of 12th Street.
The business features advanced aesthetics.
“Advanced aesthetics is typically offered in large cities but we are bringing these services closer to home,” Newkirk said. “Many people use these types of products but it takes a lot of time, travel, and added expenses to go to K.C. or farther for treatment.  By offering these services in the community, people can actually decrease their overall cost and time.  We plan to continue to expand with many additional services and are open to wellness suggestions from the community!”
Newkirk works on a patient. Submitted photo.
Services offered: Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers, Kybella, microneedling with the only FDA approved SkinPen, skin tag removal, and Cryotherapy for minor skin lesions, she said.
“Our goal is to partner with Delane Godden, owner of {Re:Freshed} Salon and Spa, to treat the whole person’s facial and skin needs,” Newkirk said.  “We all have blemishes or insecurities about our bodies we want fixed; these products allow Dr. Fox and I to offer results at a fraction of the cost compared to surgery and/or laser treatments.”
Newkirk enjoys the job she has.
Newkirk works on a patient. Submitted photo.
 ” As a provider, there is an amazing amount of joy in watching a person’s confidence increase after correcting a facial asymmetry or treating their TMJ pain with Botox or healing acne scarring that has been present for years,” she said.  “Many of the services we are offering will boost a person’s self-esteem, worth, and confidence. Who doesn’t want that? “
NewFox Wellness is located inside the Re:Freshed Salon and Spa, 1118 S. Clark. Submitted photo.
She is offering free consultations and grand opening promotions as well. The grand opening is scheduled for Nov. 1.
The phone number is 620-215-5890.
The business will be from  Monday-Saturday by appointments. “Times may vary based on injector availability,” Newkirk said.
Follow NewFox Wellness on Facebook and IG for more info and updates.

Owners
Newkirk is a Nurse Practitioner certified in family medicine.
” I graduated with my advanced nursing degree from Pittsburg State University and have additional training in Advanced Aesthetics and injectables through the National Laser Institute,” she said.

She trained under Brittney Burnworth, nurse practitioner and owner of BB Aesthetics in Columbus Ohio, a top 250 medspa in the nation, she said.  She is an Allergan Epic Advanced Training Injector Nurse Educator.

Dr. John Fox is co-owner and medical director for NewFox Wellness.

“Dr. Fox is well known and loved in this community,” Newkirk said. “It was a huge loss to our area when Mercy (Hospital) closed and he was forced to move his practice outside our area. NewFox Wellness is a way for us to give back to his wonderful patients and the community by offering services not provided in this area.”

Public Hearing On Solar Charges

Kansas Corporation Commission schedules public hearing and comment period to receive input on solar rate design
A public hearing on electric rate design options for Kansans that use solar panels is scheduled for November 5 at 6 p.m. The Kansas Corporation Commission will conduct the hearing virtually via Zoom. Kansans who wish to speak at the hearing will need to register in advance in order to receive login information. The hearing will be livestreamed on the Commission’s YouTube channel and recorded for later viewing.
For those who do not wish to speak at the hearing, there is an opportunity to submit a comment online from the KCC’s website, via email or written letter beginning today. The comment period ends on December 21 at 5 p.m.
In September 2018, as part of a Westar (now Evergy) rate case, the Commission approved a three-part rate design for residential solar customers that includes a demand charge. The Sierra Club and Vote Solar, who were parties to the docket, filed an appeal. In April of this year, the Kansas Supreme Court reversed the judgement of the Court of Appeals and the Commission and sent the matter back to the KCC for further proceedings.
An order on a new rate design consistent with the Court’s opinion is due on or before February 25, 2021.
Today’s scheduling order is available on the KCC’s website at ­https://estar.kcc.ks.gov/estar/ViewFile.aspx/20201015103348.pdf?Id=b62913a3-4d73-45a6-8bc1-008babd5ec29. More information about registering to speak at the hearing or submitting a written comment is available at https://kcc.ks.gov/your-opinion-matters.
