  The Roasted Jalapeno
  Staff report

   The brand new “food truck” in town is actually more of a mini-restaurant on wheels. The owners offer breakfast, lunch and dinner — and more than 30 items on the menu.
   The Roasted Jalapeno is the brainchild of Peyton residents Stacy and Miguel Navarro.
   Miguel Navarro has more than 20 years experience with Mexican food fare. His family members have been involved with Mexican restaurants for years, and Navarro cooked for his parents’ restaurant, Las Hadas, in Aurora, Colorado. Stacy Navarro just finished culinary school, and both are excited to bring their skills to Falcon.
   The Roasted Jalapeno is permanently located at 6985 Meridian Road, near the Farmer’s Market and Expresso-X. Stacy Navarro said they plan to be open year-round, and have an outdoor seating area for about 12 to 15 customers.
   “We’re family friendly and affordable, and our customers will leave with a full belly,” Stacy Navarro said. They are offering full dinners, and all ingredients are fresh. Among other dishes, the refried beans and green chili, which is vegetarian, are their own recipes.
   They can also provide meals for meetings, school and other events. “We have the capability to make 100 breakfast burritos; we have plenty of space and refrigeration,” Navarro said.
   Every afternoon, including weekends, they take a “siesta” break between 2 and 4 p.m. The Roasted Jalapeno is open seven days a week: Mondays — 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Tuesdays through Fridays — 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (minus the 2-4 siesta); Saturdays — 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 7 p.m.; and Sundays — 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday hours may change with the seasons.
   Stacy Navarro’s 17-year-old daughter, Jasmine, is working in the business. Two other children, Xander, age 8, and Sophia, age 2, are too young to help mom and dad.

  Chamber news
  By Jeremy Kniffen
  Liberty Tax Services

   The Eastern Plains Chamber of Commerce held their monthly meeting Aug. 2 at Grace Community Church.There were 18 members present with two guests. After brief introduction, the breakfast sponsor, Ben Kley with Falcon Broadband, discussed their business and its recent growth in Colorado Springs and Falcon.
   Ben provided information on the growing popularity of cloud based services and the need for broadband services. He also shared that Falcon Broadband is continuing to grow around the Falcon and Colorado Springs area, adding many new customers and securing more contracts for new facilities. Ben encouraged everyone to go to and click on Speed Test to allow them to record your current Internet speed at your address. This information will help local broadband companies get federal funds to provide services to unserved areas across Colorado.
   Following Ben’s presentation, Shield616 about Falcon Broadband, the remainder of the meeting was filled with information about Shield616.
   Jack Skifstad, from Shield616 started his presentation with a moving story about the start of Shield616, a local 501c(3) created to support local law enforcement. Shield616 has two main purposes: “To get local officers better gear and better protection against rifle threats” and to “break down the barrier that exists between local law enforcement and citizens.”
   Jake is a former police officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department and started Shield616 after his involvement in several high-risk situations, including the New Life Church shooting and the Planned Parenthood shooting. Jake realized that the regular patrol officers were ill-equipped to handle the threats against them. So, he developed a user-friendly “kit” that would allow officers to be better prepared to confront the dangers they face on a regular basis. Additionally, Jake noticed a decline in the normally positive relationship between local law enforcement and the citizens they serve. Shield616 not only collects monetary donations to support the local officers and deputies, but also connects the donors with the officers and deputies. This personal connection helps to create a support network for those officers in the communities they serve.

   Sept. 6 – Matt Barrett will discuss Peak Partners Leadership Academy and their partnership with School District 49. Also, Ronnie Wilson will be giving a presentation on the new Liberty Tree Academy, a D 49 charter school set to open in 2018.
