Alli Cain

Congratulations Alli Cain in Parachute, Caitlin Diaz in Rifle, Ruby Lang in Carbondale, Cody Diaz in Silt, and Johnathan Disberger in New Castle for finding the hidden keys in the Library District’s Teen Treasure Hunt this summer. Each of these winners is the first in their town to find the keys – earning them each a first prize of $125.There are still eight amazing prizes up for grabs this summer. To win, teens simply use the clues provided to locate a treasure hunt rock hidden somewhere in your town or city limits (Carbondale to Parachute). A new clue is posted each Monday throughout July, and the clues can be found at your local library or online. There are first prizes still available in Glenwood Springs and New Castle. Plus each library also will have a second chance drawing on July 31 for everyone else who finds a key (but did not win the first prize in that town). The second chance drawings will yield one lucky winner for each library, and the winner will get his/her choice of a 2G Flip video camera or $125.

With great honors and celebration the Carbondale Rotary Club held its annual Demotion Picnic on July 8 to roast outgoing President Charlotte Vanderhurst and welcome incoming President Herschel Ross.In recognition of Charlotte’s goal to include all 85 members in every aspect of Rotary throughout the past year, Rotarians lined up in the club’s usual frivolity and irreverence to roast, toast, thank and have fun honoring Charlotte’s jest for fun, love of life and universal caring for all. As Charlotte is an avid Harley rider – leathers, flames and all – the club will miss her monthly “road wisdom,” flaming personality (and attire) and particularly her weekly “hot flashes.”But international sailor Herschel Ross has already set his theme for the year by “charting the course,” setting his “sails” for fun and his weekly goal of “fair winds and calm seas.”Carbondale Rotary Club meets every Wednesday morning, 7 a.m. at the Carbondale Fire District training facility on Highway 133.

While my son has been at basic training at Ft. Leonardwood, Mo., there have been some unexpected supporters that I want to send a big thank-you out to. It would be those who work at the counter at our local post office in Glenwood Springs. A special thank you goes to Marie, Kim and Timothy. Your support and help have been amazing. From just putting the postage on the packages, to helping (above and beyond, I might add) with an important lost package, to asking how he is doing on a daily basis – you guys rock! Sometimes it is the smallest things that make a stressful time easier, and you guys were just doing your job, but in an amazing way that made it even more fun for me to send packages to support my son.

Tommy and Pidge Tomlinson of New Castle celebrated their 66th anniversary on Sunday, July 12.They have lived in the East Divide valley for 30 years. Tommy enjoys the ranch and traveling in their motorhome, and Pidge is known throughout the valley for her beautiful carved and jeweled eggs. She took “Best of Show” at the county fair several years ago.
