Olympic Tactical Instruction's staff counts more than a dozen strong. These professionals include both current and former law-enforcement officers, Special Forces members, and executive protection agents. Take instructor and investigator Orrin Knutson, for example, who served as a military police officer in the US Army for six years.
Greg Glassock may have left law enforcement, but he was hardly finished with his mission to protect and serve. Mr. Glassock saw a need for qualified trainers in the security and law-enforcement industry, as well as investigation and protection services. So he founded Olympic Tactical Instruction. The business has three faces: private investigation, protection services, and instruction. For the latter, the staff teaches self-defense and firearms.

The wireless provider industry changes quickly, but Arch Telecom keeps up by giving both technicians and front-line employees continual training. The extra effort shows: enthusiastic testimonials from clients cite employees' patient technical support for two seniors who were far from tech-savvy, as well as a staffer staying well beyond closing time to ensure a business's new phone lines were set up properly.
Kestrel Vintners' two 80-acre vineyard sites furnish wines culled from a collection of dark, rich reds and crisp, fruity whites—all created and housed within the 15,000-square-foot winery ziggurat.

Drinkables are paired with a charcuterie plate, featuring a selection of cheese and cured meats arranged to resemble Italy's boot kicking a giant meatball. Visitors will take home two souvenir glasses to commemorate their grape-fueled adventure, and will receive 20% off any wines available for purchase at the time of their visit.
