Thank you to the people of Silt and Rifle for your generous and helpful hospitality. We went to Silt from Minnesota to attend to our brother’s affairs after his sudden death. The people that we dealt with have were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. We would especially like to thank Bryon’s friends and neighbors as well as the Silt Police Department, The Miner’s Claim, Holiday Inn Express, and the many other businesses with whom we had to deal. You have a town to be proud of.God bless you.Lynn Hartman, Gary and Pam WunderlichPark Rapids and Faribault, Minn.
The theme for KDNK’s membership drive was “Vote for KDNK.” Thanks to the voters, constituents have chosen to re-elect the current administration for another six months. This helps KDNK balance the budget and go forward with the mission to provide public access radio that connects community members to one another and the world. Some say that this election was bought, and it’s true. Listeners helped KDNK raise $65,000. We at KDNK appreciate your vote of confidence and vow to continue the good work of community radio on behalf of all people in the republic, even if they abstained. God bless you, and God bless KDNK.Steve Skinnergeneral manager, KDNK

As president of our local Hi Country 4 Wheelers jeep club I would like to express my gratitude to our land use officer, Greg Noss. Greg has dedicated many years to working with our local Forest Service and BLM agencies helping the club adopt, maintain and care for many local trails in our area. Recently he has been working on a new adoption agreement for the Crescent and Mackinaw 4×4 trail on the northeast corner of the Flat Tops.Approximately 20 years ago someone rolled a vehicle off the dam at Crescent Lake, and since then it has been scavenged, shot at and left to be an eyesore.The Saturday of Labor Day weekend Greg organized more than a dozen jeep club volunteers in an effort to remove that eyesore. Greg not only volunteered his time but the use of two of his own personal vehicles and all the tools necessary to do the job. Two days with more than 10 hours each day of trail time Greg put aside the danger of the task and with great enthusiasm, accomplished something that has left me nothing short of amazed. I want to say thanks to the many caring jeep club members and especially Greg for caring about our public lands.Jennifer IsenhartNew Castle
For many of us fall brings the end of the triathlon racing season. It’s a time to reflect and evaluate our successes, our bloopers, and our “room for improvement.” It’s time for our families to welcome us back into our everyday life without the “big race” looming over our heads. The women of the Roaring Fork Women’s Triathlon Team want to thank a host of sponsors and supporters for our making it such a successful summer.Thank you to Dalby, Wendland & Co. for their continued sponsorship of our travel uniforms year after year; to Alpine Bank of the Roaring Fork Valley for their first year sponsorship of our racing uniform; to the Hot Springs Lodge and Pool for our snazzy triathlon bags and to their generous rental of the lap lanes for our swim practice. We appreciate the support we received from Glenwood Medical Associates for meeting space; from Sunlight Sports for our Tire Changing Clinic and bike maintenance assistance; to the Glenwood Springs Community Center for our rental space and great staff enthusiasm; to Xterra Wetsuits for their generous Demo Day; and to the staff and park rangers at Harvey Gap.Special thanks go to the assistant coaches, partners, spouses, parents and children of the women of the RFWTT who helped us in boats, on bikes, and on street corners throughout the summer training. You helped us stay safe and gave us a huge sense of security on the busy roads and water of our community. And of course we thank the 50 plus women of the 2012 RFWTT for inspiring us to live a lifestyle of fitness, fun, and philanthropy.Thank you.Coach Nancy ReinischCoach Judy HaynesRoaring Fork Women’s Triathlon Team
