Public Works Coffee Bar Now Open

The Henderson Chamber of Commerce held a grand opening and ribbon-butting for Public Works Coffee Bar in late August.

Public Works Coffee Bar is a small independently owned business that has been created to serve hand crafted coffee and tea for people who live and work in and around downtown Henderson. Public Works is a key element of a larger effort to energize the redevelopment of Water Street. It is a community-minded coffee shop where people can meet, drink, and eat. Public Works provides an important ingredient towards a healthy and vibrant downtown.

The friendly and professional staff will be making espresso, coffee, tea and blended drinks of the finest quality using locally sourced vendors. The pastries, breakfast items and lunchtime food will also draw upon the fantastic resources in Henderson creating a truly local experience.

A community room featuring gallery shows by local artists can be reserved for a variety of purposes. It will also be the location for interesting evening lecture events and wine tastings. An elevated dog-friendly patio is located directly out front on Water Street where one can sit outside and people watch.

Public Works is located in the new Southend on Water development at 314 S. Water St. It is an exciting and new urban coffee shop that embraces the quality of its ingredients and supports local vendors. Come and see the new face of downtown Henderson’s Water Street District.

Henderson Selects Shawn White 
to be New Fire Chief

Henderson City Manager Bob Murnane announced that Deputy Fire Chief Shawn White has been selected to serve as the 11th city of Henderson fire chief.

“Chief White has the experience and skills that we need at the helm of the Henderson Fire Department and he knows our community firsthand,” Murnane says. “Shawn is an exceptional leader who is committed to continuing the Henderson Fire Department’s tradition of providing the best possible emergency response services to Henderson residents.”

White replaces Fire Chief Matthew Morris, who accepted a position as fire chief with Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority after 21 years with the Henderson Fire Department.

White had previously been a finalist for the position of fire chief during the last selection process to fill the position following the departure of then-chief Steve Goble who retired in January 2016.

White began his career in the fire service in 1989 with the Albuquerque Fire Department, where he reached the rank of lieutenant. He joined the Henderson Fire Department in 1999 as a firefighter/paramedic and was promoted to captain and battalion chief before he was named deputy fire chief in 2014.

White was instrumental in starting the Henderson Fire Department’s Officer Development School and has a passion for training and mentoring firefighters into leadership roles. He holds a Bachelor of Fire Science from Columbia Southern University.

Get the Led Out Rocks the Music of Led Zeppelin at Henderson Pavilion

It has been 40 years since Led Zeppelin played in the United States, but the legend of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham lives on in Get the Led Out. The band, dubbed the American Led Zeppelin, performs the music of one of the greatest rock bands of all time at 7 p.m. on Oct. 7 at the Henderson Pavilion, 200 S. Green Valley Parkway. Tickets start at $25 per person.

Get the Led Out—Paul Sinclair, lead vocals and harmonica; Phil D’Agostino, bass and vocals; Jimmy Marchiano, electric and acoustic guitars and vocals; Paul Hammond, electric and acoustic guitars and mandolin; Adam Ferraioli, drums and percussion; and Andrew Lipke, keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars, vocals and percussion—has been rocking fans with their tribute to the Mighty Zep for 14 years. Led by Robert Plant-like vocals and Jimmy Page’s iconic guitar riffs, the band, which is also considered one of the best Led Zeppelin tribute acts, brings to life the original band’s studio recordings in this two-hour rock concert of nonstop hits.

These songs include such classics as “Whole Lotta Love,” “Black Dog,” “Rock and Roll,” “Kashmir” and “Ramble On,” and of course, the megahit “Stairway to Heaven.” Get the Led Out also performs lesser-known tracks that Led Zeppelin rarely or never performed in concert, including “When the Levee Breaks” and “The Ocean.” The band adds a special acoustic set that features such favorites as “Tangerine” and “Battle of Evermore” performed with its original instrumentation.

Get the Led Out’s performance is a part of the Henderson Pavilion’s 15th anniversary season. The schedule also includes Grammy Award-winning trio Wilson Phillips on October 13; Air1 Positive Hits Tour featuring Skillet, produced and promoted by Awakening Events Inc. on October 14; and Henderson Symphony Orchestra on October 20.
