Since Kurt Wigger announced a few months age he was finally closing the Sopris Restaurant there were some pretty disgruntled people.

“They say, ‘You cannot do this to us. Where will we go,'” Wigger said.

But for Wigger, who has operated the Sopris for 29 years, it’s a relief. Now instead of jockeying between Buffalo Valley and Sopris, he’ll have one place to manage.

Wigger sold his one-acre property to the developers of Bair Chase gold course and housing development for $1.35 million.

He’ll close on the deal Aug. 16. The last sit-down dinner is set for Aug. 30, which is sold out for reservations. Wigger will host a cocktail party farewell on Aug. 31, for $20 at the door, beginning at 4 p.m.

Together, they’re record breakers. And, they have yet to step on the track.

This weekend, Melissa and Ryan Buchanan, Grecthen Herb, Rachel Orosz, Katrina Selsor and Meg Waibel have the opportunity to earn a national medal at the U.S. Junior Olympics in Indianapolis.

The group of six athletes representing the Glenwood Springers are the largest contingent of qualifiers to represent the local track club in head coach Blake Risner’s tenure.

Quite a feat, considering the list of former Springers athletes who reached that level. Prior to the this year, the team high was four national qualifiers in 1997 and 1999.
