Final note for music studio
MORRISON – Musician Steve Bearsley has closed his production studio, Straightaway Productions, 13690 Lincoln Road.
Bearsley announced the closure on Facebook last week. The studio opened in 2012 and has helped numerous local musical acts record songs in a professional atmosphere.
“I want to thank all my friends, family and clients that have supported me through tour the years in this dream of mine,” Bearsley wrote. “I am very blessed to have you all in my life at some point. As I prioritize my life, I am choosing to close down the business for my own reasons.”
Among the popular musical acts Bearsley has worked with before opening his studio include Creed, Britney Spears, Jay-Z, and R. Kelly.
Business in harmony
ARGO FAY – Locally homemade soaps, hemp lotions, lip balms and jellies from Nature’s Harmony now can be found at local stores.
Sullivan’s grocery store, 300 N. Madison St. in Morrison, began carrying the line of products last week, and Shaw’s Express convenience store and gas station, 855 S. Mill St. in Mount Carroll, stocked them 2 weeks ago. The line also has been at Health and Nutrition Plus, at the Northland Mall in Sterling for nearly a year.
Melissa Coverdill makes her creations from her home in Argo Fay – a small community between Chadwick and Thomson in Carroll County.
Soaps include Dead Sea salt, peppermint chocolate, rosemary mint and flax seed milk soap.
A recent popular seller, not available at the stores, has been “The Stick,” which comes in a Chap Stick-like tube and is made from organic beeswax, avocado, coconut and hemp seed oils.
