Glenwood Springs Elementary fourth grade wants our valley to know Sunlight Mountain Resort rocks. The wonderful staff at Sunlight welcomed us with open arms and smiling faces. Fourth-graders were treated to a day on the mountain complete with rentals and lessons.
We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful amenity in our backyard.
Amazingly, almost half our students took advantage of beginning ski and snowboard lessons. It would be great to see more kids on the slopes enjoying great snow and friendly locals.
The staff could not have been more gracious and accommodating. Sunlight staff members commented on how great it was to see so many happy kids. Kids commented on how much fun they had and how appreciative they were.
Our valley community is lucky to have such terrific, supportive neighbors and friends at Sunlight. Special thanks to Erin, Susan, the rental team, ski and snowboard instructors, and the talented lunch crew.
Come on out and enjoy the snow.

Many thanks to all my family and friends who called, sent cards, flowers, visits and who brought food. Most of all, I thank them for their prayers. I am mending quickly, and a lot of that has to do with all of you.
I was returning to my downtown apartment in the 700 block of Grand Avenue at 10:59 a.m. on Jan. 5. I was waiting at the intersection of Eighth and Grand on the east side of the 800 block when the signal to cross lit up. As I stepped out, the officer driving a police cruiser that was headed toward me, which I had not seen even with its lights blaring, turned on its siren, alerting me to its presence.
I would like to thank whoever the officer was for saving me from my own inobservance. He is a credit to the force. I wish I could thank him personally. May God bless him in all his endeavors. And thanks to all police officers and those who teach and lead them. I am a grateful and fortunate citizen.
We would like to thank all the generous businesses and families that participated in the Salvation Army's annual Adopt a Family program. They helped put big smiles on 54 little kids' faces Christmas morning, and made the holidays a little less stressful for struggling parents and grandparents. Thank you for your generosity and warm hearts.
