Business Lasso Laredo Painting for reliable service by Joan Westlake

The Valley of the Sun’s winter weather is ideal for repainting and repairing homes battered by the Arizona rays.

Bill McMillan of Laredo Painting advises Chandler residents to hire a painter who is licensed and bonded, not someone who shows up at the door with a bucket of paint.

“I see these guys driving around making ridiculous offers to paint a home,” he asserts. “They use low- quality paint and materials. There is little to no prep work. They take the money and the homeowner is left with something poorly done and peeling in no time. You get what you pay for, and if the price is really cheap, you’ll get even less.”

An experienced licensed contractor can do the job for an affordable price, according to McMillan. A third-generation painter with more than 25 years experience, McMillan remembers working alongside his father, who ran a traveling business, bringing painting and repair materials to small towns around Texas.

“An old West Texas cowboy,” McMillan says of his father.

He chose the Laredo title for his business to honor him. But, the family is as Arizonan as they are Texan. Each winter, they would come out to the Valley to visit family who lived here and to work.

“Come March, we hated to leave,” McMillan says. “There was always so much more to do here than in those little Texas towns. When the bust hit the oil business, we left Texas and migrated to Phoenix.” When his wife, Jean, was expecting and wanted to be near her sister, they moved to California where Bill got his contractor’s license. But, he says they preferred

Permanent solution to tooth loss


People who have lost teeth might often feel too self- conscious to smile or talk in public. Additionally, early tooth loss can change eating habits and facial appearance and lead to secondary health problems. Although you have a number of options for the replacement of missing teeth, none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as dental implants. In many cases, dental implants are the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functioning of the teeth and supporting structures; dental implants provide a simple remedy with proven results.

Dental implants are stronger and more durable than

bridges and dentures. Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss and are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. They are proven to preserve the jaw bone, gums and the adjacent natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that their facial contours will be preserved. We offer state of the art technologies and Dr. Shah is constantly implementing the latest techniques to provide you with the best care available. Patients who come to us can smile with confidence.

On Veterans Day, Dana Law Firm opened up all five of their Valley locations in Chandler, Mesa, Scottsdale, Phoenix and Sun City to provide a free last will and testament to veterans. Dana Law Firm employees made more than 75 free wills for area veterans, valued at more than $22,000 in free legal services. “It was great to meet with these veterans and hear about their experiences,” Dana adds. “It was very rewarding to be able to give something back to them.” He says everyone who attended was “so appreciative” of the offer.

“Dana Law Firm was grateful for the opportunity to prepare these wills to provide a quality plan for their families and loved ones in the future. It was a really rewarding Veterans Day to give back to the veterans who have served us all!”
