Mountain Mailbag

Edited by Donna Daniels

It could be you!

Picture yourself in a sequin-spangled gown (guys, you don’t have to participate!), a jeweled crown and an armload of roses. Yes, you could be the next Mrs. Glenwood Springs.

To qualify, you have to be married, at least 18 years old, a U. S. citizen and must live or work in Glenwood.

Mrs. Glenwood Springs will compete for the coveted title of Mrs. Colorado May 22 in Denver. And you don’t have to be talented. We’d guess you do have to be cute. Mrs. Colorado wins a trip to Hawaii to compete in the Mrs. America Pageant.

Information: or Tricia, 303-904-3709.

New baby

He weighed seven pounds, eight ounces and was 20 inches long. His grandparents are Lee Green and Jim and Sharon Nieslanik, all of Glenwood Springs.
