Pro-Am Athletics, 10240 N.E. Halsey St, is open under new management. Parkrose Colts youth football team coach Mykol Burton and his wife Nicole reopened the Gateway athletic supply store in January. The store features sporting goods for individual and team sports and carries a complete line of official's gear as well as sports medicine supplies.

They specialize in team apparel and offer quality sports uniform screen printing and embroidery.

The Burtons are working hard to return Pro-Am Athletics to its former status as the go-to sports supply store in the area. Hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The store is closed Sunday.

Ringside to remain at Glendoveer
The Metro Council has confirmed that the Ringside Steakhouse will continue operations at the Glendoveer Golf Course and Tennis Center.

The new 10-year lease includes an option for extensions ensuring that the Ringside can remain an anchor tenant at Glendoveer for many years to come.

“The Ringside has been proud to be a part of the eastside community since 1979,” said Ringside Steakhouse partner Craig Peterson. “We are thankful that Metro has given us the opportunity to continue operating at the Glendoveer Golf and Tennis Center.”

“Community feedback from public meetings and an Opt In survey last spring told us that the Ringside Steakhouse is an important amenity and a destination in itself at Glendoveer,” said Metro Councilor Shirley Craddick, whose district includes Glendoveer. “We are pleased to continue our relationship with this fine restaurant.”

Metro staff has started working on improvements to the restaurant's building, including a new roof, paint outside and infrastructure upgrades. The coffee shop, currently operated by the restaurant, will move to the clubhouse later this year.

About $331,000 is set aside in the regional government's upcoming budget for improvements to Glendoveer, including accessibility upgrades to bathrooms, construction of a new cart barn and design and engineering for a new water tower. Other improvements include a new roof on the tennis center and new carpet and a fresh coat of MetroPaint in the clubhouse.

Those improvements are scheduled to be completed in 2013.
