Reality is, however, that this “klutz” is actually spelled with a couple of “t’s” and an “s,” rather than the stereotypical “z.” Then, too, there is the simple math of 35 years of experience at the business end of that wrench, a history of award-winning perfor-mances, and a lifetime reputation as the singular expert in the world of transmissions and most will arrive at an entirely new comfort level with Gary Klutts --the self-proclaimed “GearHead!” Gary Klutts earned his stripes decades ago working for AAMCO Transmissions at the age of 17, later began his own business 35 years ago in a pole barn on Hinchman Road in Baroda alongside his home, and moved to his current location at the Scottdale Crossroads in St. Joseph some 20-years ago. Now, he is transitioning from specializing in automotive transmission work to full-on restoration and repair of hot rods and muscle cars from the era he grew up in. His sky-blue building now sports a slick new sign branding his business as Gary’s Gearhead Garage . The 3-dimensional impact of a couple of classic car front quarters protruding from the pylon sign at 4367 Niles Road , a stone’s throw from The Mark III Restaurant , has already grabbed business right off of the roadway. A South Bend car collector saw his new sign and pulled in to order up some major work on his muscle car. Gary’s longevity in the auto repair business speaks volumes, but his personal affinity for, and success in, the drag racing world of Osceola, Indiana proves he knows his business well, and handles every job with incredible depth and pride of workmanship. Klutts can, and does, handle virtually every aspect of restoration from under the hood to fine upholstery detailing and cus-tom design. He rebuilds classic engines, strips vehi-cles to their frame and starts over for those who want a complete makeover, and virtually anywhere in between. He is supremely confident in his body of work saying, “I certainly know how to fix ‘em, because when I’m drag racing I’ve certainly torn enough of them up along the way.” Racing and working cars over have been his lifelong passions, and he’s proud of the fact that his stock Chevy Nova , a 3,000-lb car, clocked in at 130 miles per hour in 10-seconds, and his favorite car, a Chevelle , achieved 105 miles per hour in 12-seconds. He bought that Chevelle years ago for $600 dollars, He still has the window sticker records showing that it retailed for $3,200 brand new, and is now worth in a neighborhood north of $50,000. Gary’s new Gearhead Garage is already populated by multiple cars in various stages of work, but he’s ready and willing to take on work for any aficionado in need of his assistance. Despite his long years of service, he has no plans in sight for retirement telling me he’d continue to work, “Even if I had a million dollars. My stuff might be a little nicer if I had a million, but I’d still be working away in this great garage.” Gary and his two employees are ready for you.

If the movers and shakers of the Bridgman community are any indication whatsoever, the wood-fire pizzas, and hand-crafted microbrews of Chicago’s Haymarket Pub & Brewery simply can’t get here fast enough. Members of the Bridgman CGA chamber group got a Business After Hours taste test from Haymarket owners Pete Crowley and John Neurauter recently ahead of a Bridgman Planning Commission meeting and were raving over the refreshments as they networked the night away. Brewmaster Pete Crowley and building contractor Zane McGuire of McGuire’s Professional Construction of Benton Harbor gave tours of the work-in-progress underway in the former Bridgman State Police Post at 9301 Red Arrow Highway, while the Haymarket team was busy stoking the wood-fired oven with multiple pies for the eager business people on hand. While the project still looks very stark, a ton of progress has been made according to McGuire and they are actually running ahead of schedule in the bid to get the new Haymarket Pub & Brewery open for the summer of 2016. The 10,000 square foot building may not look like it inside yet, but a substantial amount of work has been done in raising the rafters to accommodate for the oversized beer-making equipment that will be placed at the center of the operation. That planning commission meeting was to gain site plan approval for a 6,000 square foot addition at the rear of the taproom and production facility to host Haymarket’s canning and bottling operation, a super-sized walk in cooler, fermentation tanks and space for additional fermentation tanks in the future. The front of the building, closest to Red Arrow Highway will be the main entrance and the main bar, dining room and merchandising area. The glassed-in beer making gear will be at the center of the building, and the rafters had to be raised in order to avoid disrupting the special copper roof that caps the building which was a state police post for some 17-years before it was closed due to budget cuts. The 6,000 square foot addition will be constructed using an insulated metal panel system and will be highly energy efficient according to McGuire who has been on the job since late winter. The 17-acre site will also accommodate a large Beer Garden patio on the south side of the building, while seating inside the pub and restaurant is pegged at close to 100. The wood-fired pizzas made on site that night using a mobile oven will be made in the restaurant using a wood-fired oven being installed in the pub. The original Haymarket Pub & Brewery is located at 737 W. Randolph in Chicago and was opened for business five years ago, specializing in Classic Belgian and contemporary American brewing styles, with an emphasis on hops, barrel-aging and a wide variety of authentic Belgian yeast strains. The pub and taproom will also serve house-made sausages, soft pretzels and other fare. The Bridgman facility will be a major piece of the microbrew puzzle for Haymarket who will install more than a million dollars- worth of bottling equipment alone. As the Red Arrow site grows over the next three years, Crowley and Neurauter anticipate hiring up to 40 employees, with over half of those enlisted as full-time workers in the bottling facility. Crowley’s sterling reputation as a brewmaster is legendary. He is highly decorated with more than 70 local, national and international awards for his beers, including medals in the World Beer Cup, Great American Beer Festival, and the Festival of Wood & Barrel-Aged Beer.

In the more than 32 years that he worked for the Hanley family at Vail Rubber Company, Joe Fellows became deeply ingrained with the concept of premier performance at every step. He has deep respect for the manner in which that more than 100 year old company paid close attention to quality, safety and reputation. Those are now hallmarks he pledges for his own mold remediation business launched earlier this year. Fellows has established a first-class mold removal and prevention agency he calls Clean Sailing Cutting-Edge Restoration. He has immersed himself into his unique approach to mold remediation issues and obtained professional status as a Certified Mold Remediator. We’ve all heard about the health hazards of black mold, and Joe has learned that there are at least 100 types of mold that are black in coloration, but only 15 that are actually considered to be truly black mold. Fortunately, only one of those is truly toxic. Nevertheless, it takes an expert to analyze and resolve issues related to toxic mold situations. Mold grows naturally in our environment on wet or damp surfaces. Even if not toxic, the tiny spores are harmful and post a health risk that can trigger allergic reactions, asthma attacks and irritation of your eyes, nose, throat, skin and lungs. It’s not just your health at risk, either. Left unchecked, unsightly mold can cause expensive damage to both the exterior and interior of your home, cottage, business buildings, schools, churches, and even medical and government facilities. Mold can also attack the hull of your watercraft. Clean Sailing Cutting-Edge Restoration uses a safer, faster and more effective way to remove mold and is making it available to clients through on-site service. Joe uses innovative dry-ice cleaning as well as one-step, hospital-grade botanical solutions to help you rid your surfaces of mold growth. His system effectively removes 99-percent of mold spores from wood and reduces cleaning time by up to 80-percent. The nice thing about Clean Sailing is they use no caustic or toxic chemicals and release no harsh or lingering fumes. Additionally, the treatment is non-abrasive and non-conductive. Clean Sailing operates out of St. Joseph and serves a broad range of northern Indiana and southwest Michigan. Interested parties can contact Fellows at 269-605-3430 for a free consultation. He will look at your mold problem, find solutions to prevent your mold-growing moisture and discuss with you the best way to clean your surfaces safety and quickly.

In addition to the artwork the event includes live music and dancing with Libido Funk Circus from Chicago, a regional favorite that has played numerous venues and events in the area.
