dr Kimberly Sheppard and Dr. Chris Ntor-Ue offer chiropractic care for families, pediatrics and infertility. Although services include chiropractic care, including acupuncture and massage, an emphasis on children and young children has been added.

For more information about the company, visit the Aligned Family Wellness Facebook page or call 217-875-7151.

According to branch manager Erin Schall, there have been plans for the renaming for some time. “It was time for the name change,” she said. “They wanted to rename themselves.”

Sheppard opened the Back Institute nearly 20 years ago with a co-owner who has since moved. “They’re not here anymore, so she wanted to rebrand herself and make it more of what she’s aiming for now,” said Schall.

The Sky City Grill serves unique dishes

Rodney Walker resigned his seat on the Decatur City Council nearly a year ago so he could contribute to his community in other ways.

His new SkyCity Grill restaurant on Decatur’s west side is one of those contributions.

The SkyCity Grill is closed on Mondays. The regular opening hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekdays. The opening hours are on weekends at noon.

Popular dishes on the menu include lamb chops, steak and eggs, and the Dubb Burger – a bacon and fried egg burger served on a glazed donut bun. “We’re creative,” Walker said.

A games room has recently opened.

The location, 1099 W. Main St., is near Millikin University. But the customers aren’t all students and their families, Walker said.

The customers were a mix of community members and Decatur visitors. “There are different walks of life,” Walker said. “But if you come in here and you don’t feel like family, we’re doing something wrong.”

ON BIZ: TKG’s Daily Delights, Standing Paddle, MTZ Auto Express

TKG changes things

Motorists along South Franklin Street may have noticed a change in TKG’s restaurant sign.

It now reads TKG’s Daily Delights.

According to owner Kathleen Garmon (pictured), the restaurant is no longer part of the Wing Heaven franchise. The restaurant at 760 S. Franklin St. opened seven years ago. Garmon and her husband Tom had plans to open TKG’s Daily Bread years ago.

“After seven years of experiencing Wing Heaven, which was great for us, we settled on our original platform,” she said.

The menu leans heavily toward soul food, with offerings like kale, cornbread dressing, candied yams, and macaroni and cheese.

“And there are other foods that we add on a daily basis, maybe mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, spaghetti,” Garmon said. “People like variety.”

TKG’s is known for its variety of wings. Running their own business, the owners have stripped away the spices and flavors of wing heaven.

“The sauces we have now are our creations,” Garmon said.

The restaurant has also changed its opening hours. The shop is now open Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 6.30pm. “We take our last call at 6:15 p.m.,” Garmon said.

Mount Zion Auto Express now open

Mount Zion Auto Express now open

Mount Zion Auto Services, located at 325 N. State Highway 121, has expanded into the building next door.

“At the main store, we do all the repairs,” said co-owner Josh Rankins. “At Mount Zion Auto Express, we will only do tire changes, oil changes and inspections.”

Mount Zion Auto Express is located in the former Jan Master Cleaning Services building.

The new store opened this month. “But it’s business as usual,” Rankins said.

Business hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The owners hope to offer longer opening hours in the future.

“This was just a means of freeing up more space in our shop,” Rankins said, noting that they were doing three to five oil changes a day and using space that could be used for more extensive repairs.

“And opening it up as an additional service for the community to have their oil changed.” No appointment is required for Auto Express services.
