Caledonia Mexican restaurant El Patron, 9631 Wolfe Road, will soon move to Columbus’ Brickerton Plaza. El Patron manager Sebastian Vazquez said he plans to open shop at 78 Brickerton during the first few weeks of September. The restaurant’s Facebook lists its hours Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-9 p.m.

In Columbus, Angie Huskison plans to open The Competitive Edge on Highway 45. The Competitive Edge is a training facility to help people train their brains, but also to help them discern more out of what they see. Service is by appointment only, and is aimed primarily at athletes, law enforcement officers, and others whose jobs require them to rely heavily upon perception and processing of visual data quickly. They also plan to cater to people with developmental disabilities. Anyone who wishes to improve themselves will, of course, also be welcome.

They are shooting to be open on Oct. 1 at 2322 Hwy. 45 N.  


Starkville’s Main Street now has a new bakery on the block, which may end up filling the void left by City Bagel’s recent closure. Proof Bakery, 109 West Main St., opened last week at the former Grain Elevator, which was DeRego’s Bread before that.  

Co-owners Bonnie and Robbie Coblentz have the shop open from Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m. T.J. Manna is their store manager and head baker; Robbie said this of her: “T.J. is an incredible baker,” Robbie said. “When we hatched this idea, we reached out to T.J.. She is the cornerstone, from a production standpoint, of this establishment.”  

With T.J in charge, demand for her bagels has been both constant and massive.
