I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who made the Holistic Harmony anniversary celebration a memorable and successful evening. There was such a fantastic energy in the room between the musicians and audience, I can’t stop reliving it. Each musician put their hearts into their performances. The introduction of the Harmony Chorus provoked strong emotion and introspection.

Thank you to the members of the committee for the organization, thank you to the musicians for once again donating your time, and thank you to those who came to observe and participate in the program. It certainly is special and unique.

Carbondale Recreation and the youth baseball/softball program would like to offer a huge thank-you to the following people and businesses for their continued support and involvement in youth recreation.

Thank you to Kurt Korn and Tory Jensen for coaching the 7-8 boys coach pitch baseball team; Julia Anderson for coaching the 8-10 girls softball team; Kim Spence for coaching the 9-10 boys baseball team; and Lisa Nieslanik for coaching the 11-12 girls softball team. Additional thank-yous go out to Jeff Kelley and Cailen Hollenback for their work with the 9-10 boys baseball team and Paul Huttenhower for his help with the 11-12 girls softball team.

Carbondale Recreation would also like to thank White House Pizza, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Peppino’s Pizza, Mason Morse Real Estate, American National Bank, and Glenwood Orthodontics for each sponsoring a team.

Our youth baseball/softball program relies on volunteer coaches and the time and energy they give to their team, as well as the support of local businesses. Those listed above made another summer of sports and fun possible for almost 60 kids.

Thank you again!

I want to thank the people who helped me on the morning of Wednesday, July 23, as I lay dazed and bleeding on the sidewalk in the neighborhood of Rock Court, after the dog I was walking made a U-turn and yanked me into the concrete, where I slammed my forehead and my ribs.

Thank you, Sky, the lady who found me and who I think applied compresses to the gash and called 911. Thank you to Larry and Cathy, who came out of their home to help. They kept the dog and my prescription eyeglasses until I could return to retrieve both. Thank you to the police ” I think the big cop, Greg, was on duty. Thank you to the two EMTs, Ray and Travis, who administered an IV and oxygen while they monitored their other magical machine in the ambulance.

Thank you to Dr. Ben Peery at the Valley View emergency room, who artfully stitched me up. And all the aides, nurses and techs who ministered to me. And, last but not least, thank you to my friend, Barbara, who yet again came down from Redstone to bring me home, run some errands for me and get me settled in comfortably.

I am in your debt and grateful for your tender mercies.
