Deck for Mill Hill; award for Clark

       Bloom's Mill Hill Saloon has built an outdoor deck. Located in front of the tavern facing 21st Street, the area is designated for smoking customers who, based on a law passed by the Colorado Legislature this year, no longer can smoke inside bars.
       “That's the idea,” said owner Jim Bloom. He helped pour the cement for the 30-by-13-foot deck, which opened Aug. 21.
       A steel roof will eventually cover the area, Bloom said.
       Westside leader Sallie Clark recently received the Business Leader of the Year Accolades Award, presented by the Southern Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce.
       Clark is chair of the El Paso County Board of Commissioners and has co-owned the Holden House bed-and-breakfast with her husband, Welling, for more than 20 years. She was honored by the organization for her public service, community involvement and business skills.
       The Southern Colorado Women's Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization that supports women in business.
