Cedaredge trustees will discuss the first draft of a proposed marijuana growing ordinance at their Oct. 16 regular meeting.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is more than Wanda Brunemeier’s personal philosophy, it’s also the guiding principle by which she has run her business for the past 20 years.
This month, Brunemeier is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Mattes & More, which provides matting and framing services.
The business is located in Cory just off Highway 65, next to the home occupied by Wanda and her husband Jerry.
The business started in a 24x24-foot shop adjacent to their home. As the business has grown, so has the shop, which has been expanded a number of times to accommodate a growing inventory and computerized equipment.
