time. NISD Superintendent Ryder Warren indicated virtual learning would be considered if school closures continued beyond that date. Additionally, the cities of Keller, Roanoke and Fort Worth announced a series of closures and adjustments to city operating procedures. By March 16, all three municipalities had opted to close public libraries, rec- reation centers, community centers and senior centers through at least March 29. The Metroport Chamber of Commerce also announced the cancellation of meet- ings and events through March 31. Gov. Greg Abbott announced a state- wide disaster declaration March 13 and requested nursing homes and day cares to limit their number of visitors.

Cities, school districts and chamber organizations were quick to react after a state of emergency was declared March 13 in Tarrant and Denton counties in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus. Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley declared a state of disaster and was quickly followed by Denton County Judge Andy Eads’ own declaration, which he said was a “proactive response.” “We believe this is the most prudent action to take,” Eads said. “Be thoughtful and considerate to your fellow citizens.” Health ocials are urging people to avoid large gatherings, practice social distancing and work from home. Several business sectors, such as restaurants, gyms and theaters, have seen rapid declines in customers. Northwest and Keller ISDs extended spring break through March 27. Both districts will re-evaluate at that

FROMTHE EDITOR: During a normal month, this page is a place for us to keep readers up to speed on local events coming up in their community. This has not been a normal month. We went to press with this paper March 18, a full week before it started reaching mailboxes. At the time, some Keller, Roanoke and Northeast Fort Worth events we were planning to highlight in this and future editions— such as the kid-friendly Eggapalooza celebration—had been canceled as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus. Some other event organizers we spoke with were still planning to go forward. We quickly realized we could not guarantee the accuracy of an event listing page. With that in mind, we decided not to run the To-Do List this month. Our goal is for our coverage to connect readers with their communities and to do so with accuracy and a mind for our readers’ well-being. We hope to bring this content back soon. Look for it in future print editions and on communityimpact.com. Ian Pribanic, EDITOR

CAN YOU TRUST YOUR CBD COMPANY? Debunking the myths around the CBD industry

Local dignitaries, including U.S. Rep. Kay Granger, Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Denton County Judge Andy Eads, were in attendance Feb. 20 at Fort Worth Alliance Airport for the announcement of a new Gulfstreammaintenance facility. The facility is expected to create 50 new jobs at the airport. (Ian Pribanic/Community Impact Newspaper)

CROWELL: You can get CBD from a marijuana plant but it’s going to be low in concentration. The highest concentration of CBD and the other Cannabinoids comes from industrial hemp. The marijuana plant is high in tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and very low in CBD. CBD is not mind- altering. You cannot get addicted to it. CBD interacts with “Since opening in Texas last year, we have served over 6,000+ customers,” Crowell said. “I can’t even put into words what we’ve seen as far as results from our customers. Our very first month, I can remember seeing customers come in—3, 5, 7 people at a time—with various issues, seeking information and a place to tell their story and what they are facing. We are humbled that so many trust us and allow us to become part of their journey.” Today the company boasts 37 Texas locations including Southlake, Fort Worth, I n September 2018, Chrissy Crowell opened Your CBD Store in Keller. It was the first Texas based retail lo- cation for Florida-based SunFlora, selling CBD (Cannabidiol) product under the SunMed brand. Crowell is a Texan native and one of the original store founders.

It does not produce a “high.” We don’t carry THC in any of our SunFlora/SunMed organic broad spectrum products (which include tinctures, water solubles, topical creams, capsules, edibles, oil vapes, skin care and other beauty products and products for family pets) and only the legal 0.3% in our full-spectrum line (tinctures, water-solubles, edibles). Decatur, Frisco and San Antonio among others. Most were launched with the help of Crowell and Paul by Your CBD Store customers turned owners who believed in the product so much that they decided to open their own store. “We’re now the largest brick and mortar CBD outlet in the world, with 600 locations in the U.S. and stores overseas,” Crowell said. In a marketplace exploding with CBD products, where everything from bath bombs to gummy bears is available online, at health food stores and even gas stations, what is a consumer to do? Crowell tackles some of the myths about CBD, which is even beginning to gain a modicum of credibility within the scientific and medical communities.

150-200 jobs from its current oper- ations at Love Field. The Alliance facility will create an additional 50 jobs, Zimmerman said, and Gulfstream Dallas will continue operating at Love Field with roughly half of its current 650 employees. DFW has the second-largest num- ber of aviation jobs in the country, said Bill Burton, the vice president of developer Hillwood, which spear- headed the addition of Gulfstream to the AllianceTexas area. “Alliance Airport and AllianceTexas are truly an example of what a public-private partnership can be,” Burton said. “We’ve worked very hard to create an environment to attract world-class companies like Gulfstream.” Within Gulfstream’s new Alliance facility, more than 40,000 square feet will be dedicated to shops and service areas, and 80,000 square feet will be hangar space. “We can hopefully attract local employees to the airport, keep them here with great jobs and continue to support customers for years to come,” Zimmerman said.

The aviation industry continues to grow in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with the latest development at Fort Worth Alliance Airport. Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced plans Feb. 20 to con- struct a $35 million aircraft main- tenance facility on 21 acres on the northeast side of the airport. The facility will total 160,000 square feet of oces, shops and support areas to accommodate up to nine G650 aircraft at one time. “Having a purpose-built, business aviation-only airport like Alliance was extremely attractive to us,” said Derek Zimmerman, the president of Gulfstream customer support. “In addition, having Tarrant County Col- lege here and their new campus that trains new employees and techni- cians was an attractive partnership.” Gulfstream will break ground on the new facility in the third quarter of 2020 with an anticipated open- ing in the fourth quarter of 2021, Zimmerman said. To operate the Alliance facility, Gulfstream expects to relocate

MYTH 2: ALL CBD IS THE SAME.

CROWELL: The fact is, industrial hemp is the correct plant to extract CBD from. Where in the plant it is extracted, and the process used, effects the quality. Using a triple pass distillate, provides the cleanest and highest profile of Cannabinoids. Many companies use a one pass

distillate called Crude, which is an easier and cheaper process. This is a darker color with more plant particles left behind in the oil. We regulate everything from the soil to the oil. Our product comes from a Colorado farm certified by that state’s Department of Agriculture.

MYTH 3: ALL CBD IS SAFE TO CONSUME.

CROWELL: In a recent UCONN study, of 100 CBD products pulled off of shelves at health food stores, gas stations, vape shops and online, less than 67 percent tested out properly. Our approach is simple at Your CBD Store. Education is first and foremost. When our customers have been educated on CBD properly, they will then feel comfortable enough to shop. It goes without saying that not all CBD prod- ucts are the same. Our policy is transparency and excellence. Consumers deserve to get exactly what they pay for, and we want to teach our customers

what to look for so that they can feel confident and get consistent results when they find their way with CBD. Triple lab testing, proper extraction in an FDA registered lab, hemp sourced from a USDA regulated farm, and even passing the grueling test of becoming one of the first USDA organic and Kosher Certified products on the market are just some of the ways we have stayed true to our customers. Although the industry hasn’t called us to stand up to such rigorous standards, we feel it’s a necessary standard and future benchmark that all CBD companies should have to stand up to.

A Bikers Garage in Roanoke provides maintenance services for a wide range of motorcycle brands.

“If you’re a real enthusiast, your bike becomes individualized to your particular taste and style,” Redenbaugh said. “Our sole focus is service and accessorizing so that you can get the bike to be what you want it to be.” As enthusiasts themselves, employees at the garage are focused on supporting the motorcycle community, Redenbaugh said. Whether it is a refresh of the engine or a transmission upgrade, the goal is to help customers get more performance out of their bikes. “We strive to be the best motor- cycle value in Texas, and value is much more than the price of an item,” he said.
