      New life for old 'W' building in Sawyer

      The former "W" building at K.I. Sawyer has new life as the Black Bear Grill and the Cave Fitness Center. The grill and fitness center opens for business this Friday. Monday, the family of the owners, Van Damme Trucking, got a chance to see how things are shaping up. The restaurant features both hot and cold sandwiches as well as freshly made burgers and pizza.

      "We're really going to try to serve the people in the community and what they want, and there's a lot of businesses out here, and that's what they need is fast service and fresh foods," said Hannah Erickson, Manager of Black Bear Grill. "Then if you come in here, it's just like a little new, fresh vibe and it's something the community needs."

      The Cave Fitness Center includes a full-size gym, fitness studio and an indoor track. Once open, the Black Bear Grill and the Cave Fitness Center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
