Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Glenwood Canyon Zipline Adventures, located at Glenwood Canyon Resort just off the No Name exit in Glenwood Canyon, has completed its much-anticipated new attraction, a zipline that traverses the Colorado River and a high ropes challenge course. To celebrate and debut the new adventure ride, Glenwood Canyon Zipline Adventures is inviting locals to catch a little zipline buzz on May 8 and 9 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with special discounts for residents of the Roaring Fork Valley and the I-70 corridor from Glenwood Canyon to Rifle.  

Shoebox Memories LLC, owned and operated by longtime Roaring Fork Valley local Kari Crowley, will organize and preserve your old photos, slides and home movies and convert them to DVD. The average household has thousands of photos boxed up in garages and attics that are just collecting dust. Trapped in those cardboard containers are snapshots from family reunions, birthday parties, weddings, vacations, and most importantly, the simple moments in life. They might be stored away but that doesn’t mean they’re not deteriorating – colors can fade and shift over time.

The good news is that scanning can help preserve and protect those treasures from the past. The bad news is that digitizing those old photographs yourself can be a formidable task. Scanning and retouching each photo, slide or negative would take an untold amount of your time and energy. Crowley says, “For less than $300, anyone can buy a scanner, but do the math. At four to five minutes per scan for a thousand photos, you’re talking thousands of minutes of your time.”

People can send their photos to Shoebox Memories, and the company will put them in digital form and also provide photo restoration to erase dust and scratches. Do some spring cleaning and empty out those boxes of loose photos, slides, negatives, even VHS and older 8mm and 16mm reels. Shoebox Memories can also create custom slide shows for those special occasions like birthdays, weddings, memorials, etc.

Shoebox Memories is now offering a 10 percent off Spring Clean special through the month of May. Preserving the past is more affordable than you think. For more information, please visit http://www.shoeboxmemoriesllc. com or call 945-1246.

Brad Mastro, LaPriel Armijo and Michelle James with Vicki Lee Green Realtors have earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification (SFR). This certification program is offered by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) to agents that want to manage short-sale, foreclosure and real-estate owned transactions, and provides resources to these agents to stay current on national and state-specific information as the market for these distressed properties evolves.

According to NAR one-third of all existing homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures. Realtors with the SFR certification have the knowledge to maneuver both buyer and seller through the complexities of these transactions.

Brad, LaPriel and Michelle can be reached at 945-1010 to help assist both buyers and sellers with these types of real estate transactions.
