Steve Williams plays New Castle Market

There are only three more New Castle Community Markets left this summer. From 4:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, Steve Williams will be in the Burning Mountain Park gazebo playing his smooth and sultry jazz guitar. This music is sponsored by Maud’s on Main.

The Rifle Animal Shelter will be on hand with some of its awesome pets that are up for adoption. As usual, there will be plenty of healthy, locally grown produce from Juicy Acres, Blazing K and Organic Farms. Other vendors include Little Hands wood working, Dave’s local meats, jewelry and unique T-Shirts, Doterra Essential Oils, the delicious Crabtree Food Court, snow cones, Upper Crust Bakery, and more. Of course the weekly drawing prizes are fantastic, and only $1 to enter. For additional information, contact Noreen Nolan at 970-984-3420.

Genesis Baca named National American Miss state ambassador

Genesis Daniela Baca from Rifle was named state ambassador among 74 contestants in June at the National American Miss Pageant held in Denver. She also won the spirit girl, the talent show dancing ballet and tap trophies and the photogenic start plate. She is going to represent Colorado at nationals in Anaheim, Calif., during Thanksgiving week. She is very happy because with community support she could achieve one of her dreams.
