Dixie is home

I would like to thank all the people that tried to help me catch my dog Friday afternoon in Glenwood Springs. Dixie, my 11-year-old Jack Russell got loose at the Glenwood Springs dog park. She took off at a dead run, which she has never done in the past, heading north down the Rio Grande bike path. Everyone on the trail tired to catch her. She was cornered many times.

She jumped into the Roaring Fork River and swam for a while, ran past our car in the Two Rivers Park parking lot. She headed onto Devereux Road around the car dealership and on to Sixth street heading west. People on foot, bikes and vehicles where following her down the street keeping on eye on her as others were asking me “Did you lose a small dog?” as I was running down the road after her, with lots of “she went that-away”! This was all around rush hour. Folks stopped their vehicles when she was close and offered me rides to keep up with her. I lost sight of her around Vic’s Drive In. I didn’t know where to look. I received a call on my cell phone saying that we captured a small dog behind the Glenwood Mall if I was the owner. The folks that called, Derek and Shannon visiting the area from Florissant, CO, that saw her running, flagged down a SUV and then follow her until they could pick her up and loaded her into the SUV. I don’t think she could have survived her 4 mile run without the care of all the people along her escape route and the wonderful visitors from Florissant. Thank you,

Jerry & Dixie Morris

Thanks for the love & support

Thank you to the doctors, staff, coworkers and friends of Michael DeLeon at Aspen Valley Hospital, who are more like family. We appreciate your love, support and caring thoughts during his long battle with cancer. Michael truly had a second family here with all of you in Colorado, and we thank you for loving him and taking care of him.

A loving appreciation,

Dolores Thatch (mom) and the DeLeon Family

A Valentine extraordinaire

The Symphony Swing event given by the members of the Symphony in the Valley was a Valentine present extraordinaire! The music was superb and so enjoyable. The table decor was delightful. The food was delicious. The dancing was so entertaining. It was a refreshing celebration for all. We didn’t miss a note and couldn’t resist dancing.

More than just enjoyment and pleasure, it was an up-lift from the cares and worries of our downtrodden and weary world. It was wholesome, light-hearted and beautiful. How can we thank all of the symphony members enough for their unselfish devotion to music and willingness to share with our community. There is such a need for such good, pleasurable entertainment and even more for the blessings that good music gives.
