Keys are a way of life for Melinda and Steven Gaudette at EKeys 4Cars. Located at Route 1 in Saco, EKeys 4Cars is the number one provider of transponder keys in the eastern New England area. Originally from Caribou, proprietor Melinda Gaudette, along with locksmith Steven, relocated from Florida to open the shop,. “Saco has a small town feel, and that is something we wanted to be a part of,” said Gaudette as she explained about all of the services provided by Ekeys, including, ignition system service, replacement of lost keys, road service, providing a place for a spare keys and more, for almost all makes and models. “You don’t have to go to the dealership and spend all kinds of money for a spare key,” said Malinda. Up until recently, the technology to provide keys has been expensive to after-market suppliers, if available at all. A combination of new technology and the increased number of transponder equipped cars, has made it economically feasible for after-market services. Owner Jim Broadhurst began the business in 2003 in New Hampshire and now owns two locations, one in North Andover and the new Saco location which opened earlier this year. With the number of keys, that can’t be provided by the local hardware store, EKeys4Cars has become a necessity for the motoring public.

Ekeys 4Cars is located at 810 Portland Rd. Saco,

Society is changing and people are at a crossroads when it comes to their health.

It is this reason that Rolnick Chiropractic Wellness Centre in Biddeford is seeing a new level of folks seeking treatment.

The body is a complex and integrated system where physical, mental and chemical stressors play a vital role in one’s ability to gain and maintain overall health and wellbeing.

We know that without addressing these elements, true healing cannot be obtained.

“We work with people who experience chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD – people who aren’t looking for a quick fix,” said Dr. Ellie Rolnick. “They want to dig in and really take care of themselves.”

Because of the national opioid crisis, it’s evident that people are in pain and looking for a solution.

“When you’re prescribed more medication, it gets into a vicious cycle,” Dr. Ellie said, adding that an chiropractic adjustments can be helpful in that situation, in addition to other types of therapy.


Owners Andrey and Irina Malayev of L&L Jewelers Owners Andrey and Irina Malayev of L&L Jewelers Dr. Ellie wants people to know and understand that the body can heal by teaching the brain how to produce more relaxing brain waves. How does that happen?

“Brain Tap Technology, for example, uses lights, sounds andguided imagery that helps us achieve mental and emotional balance.”

There are more than 850 different Brain Tap programs that address issues from chronic pain and weight management to how to decrease stress, phobias and bad habits.

In addition to Brain Tap, the center is now utilizing a therapy called neurofeedback “Using computerized images the brain responds when it is being successful at changing to more appropriate patterns,” Dr. Ellie says. “This is a gradual learning process and applies to many aspects of brain function that we can measure.”

Neurofeedback addresses problems of brain disregulation and includes the anxiety-depression spectrum, attention deficits, behavior disorders, various sleep disorders, headaches and migraines, PMS and emotional disturbances.

“The Chiropractic adjustment itself is known to change neural pathways but we live in a society where most people don’t eat, think or move well. The adjustment is not enough anymore,” Dr. Ellie says.

In a world when people younger than 40 are on multiple medications, Dr. Ellie encourages individuals to take hold of their health and well being. Since insurance is designed to cover pain or illness, Dr. Ellie has tried to pare down the fees for services offered at the center.

“It’s mind boggling how high medical costs are but if you spend a little on ongoing care and divide that by 12, it’s less than a car payment for your health,” she says.

A Buyer’s Guide To Windows From A-B.E.S.T. WINDOW

There are several good questions a homeowner should ask any company when they are considering replacing their windows. Where is the window made and why is it important to buy local? A-B.E.S.T. windows are made in Maine. Studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally-owned business, rather than nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses and service providers. Buying from a locally-owned company also allows the business to hire more local people. How long has the company been in business and is the company a franchise or locally owned? A-B.E.S.T Window is a Maine familyowned business that has installed over 225,000 windows since 1985. A franchisee’s warranty is only good as long as that franchise owner stays in business. Many local franchises have come and gone over the years leaving the homeowner with a piece of paper that is not worth a thing. As A-B.E.S.T. Window is both the manufacturer and installer, we are able to offer a 20-year comprehensive warranty on both the components and labor. Why pay $800, $1000, $1200 or more per window? We have heard stories of other companies charging this amount or more per window! Over the last two years we have replaced over 5,000 Andersen windows. If the window is truly custom made to fit the current window opening there should be no need for costly carpentry. Why is the best choice solid reinforced vinyl windows? Wood swells in wet weather and shrinks in the heat, it also needs painting and staining to keep it from rotting. An A-BEST solid reinforced vinyl window is truly the answer if you want a maintenance free window. Why do some window companies insist on pressure selling, forcing me to make a quick decision instead of letting me do some comparison shopping? The reason these companies are willing to give you such a “great deal” tonight and only tonight is because they know if you comparison shop you will find a better deal. Insist on comparison shopping and don’t be pressured into quick decisions. The science and engineering of the A-B.E.S.T. Window will demonstrate to homeowners why the A-B.E.S.T. Window is the superior choice over anything else on the market today. Please call A-B.E.S.T.

Take your body to the next level at Maine Laser Skin Care and Medi Spa

At Maine Laser Skin Care and Medi Spa, staff want their clients to walk away looking refreshed, natural.

“We’re not trying to sell clients fillers they don’t need,” said Christine Burke, RN, and co-owner of the business. “When someone has an enhancement, it should be subtle.”

Burke and her husband, Dr. John Burke, opened Maine Laser Skin Care and Medi Spa in May at 438 U.S. Route 1 in Scarborough and say the community couldn’t have been more welcoming. Conveniently located on Route 1, clients don’t have to fight Portland traffic to get the latest, top notch services in skin care and medi spa treatments.

From facials with aestheticion Tori Zimmerman to microneedling and laser treatments, staff at the practice can resolve skin conditions such as facial veins, sun spots and scarring. Their techniques also produce great success in eradicating facial hair and spider veins.

Clients can try CoolScuplting, a revolutionary body contouring system that doesn’t involve surgery and is non invasive. Burke says CoolSculpting is ideal for stubborn fat pockets that aren’t eliminated through diet or exercise alone.

In addition, Maine Laser Skin Care has been rated as one of the top providers of Botox in the state and are in the top 3 percent nationally.

Finally, for those clients who are interested in thicker, fuller eyelashes without the expense and need for frequent refilling, Maine Laser Skin Care offers Latisse, a solution that stimulates the growth of eyelashes.

The staff at Maine Laser Skin Care and Medi Spa are tight knit and work together to do what’s best for the client.

“When someone comes in with sun damage, we suggest they first have a facial to remove the dead skin and get a better look at damaged areas,” Burke said. “It helps cut down on the number of laser treatments.”

The Burkes are happy to continue to “Beautify Maine, one face at a time,” at this, their second location in Maine – their first being in Augusta. For more information about the variety of services they offer, visit www.mainelaserskincare.com.
