Property transfers in Garfield County for August came in very close to last year’s August number, but a little short.

The dollar volume total for the month came in at $21 million, down 2.27 percent from August 2009’s total of $21.5 million. Transaction volume for the county totaled 56, which is a decrease of 1.75 percent (one single transaction) from August 2009.

Local counselors Jim Chenoweth, MA, LPC, and Kimberlie Chenoweth, MA, BCPC, are pleased to announce the addition of a powerful new modality to their practices.

Jim and Kimberlie were recently certified by David Berceli, PhD, to teach individuals a series of six simple exercises designed to release tension and trauma held in the body. These revolutionary Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) are based on key understandings of anatomy, physiology and neurology. We all have encoded within us the ability to naturally resolve traumatic experiences and release everyday tension, but we have been conditioned to override this ability. And our bodies reflect it. TRE restores body, mind and spirit to natural, normal functioning. For more information, see David Berceli’s website at

Kimberlie and Jim are offering new clients a special introductory rate of $200 for a four-session package. They can be reached at 945-8598.

Other local TRE practitioners completing this certification include Lisa DeBussy, Eileen Geitner, Sallyanne Johnson, Rita Marsh, Jacqui Wheeler and Michelle Williams.
