I wanted to give Greg and Nick of High Country Carpet Care And Restoration an extra thank-you. This past weekend, my dog got sprayed by a skunk, came into our home and proceded to roll all over our furniture and carpet. I thought our house was ruined. My husband was out of town, and I was home by myself with a newborn baby and my 10 year old.

I called around to about five different carpet cleaners. (Please keep in mind this is around 7 a.m.). I left messages with all of them. Greg was the only one who called me back, he was at my house within three hours, gave me a full consultation of what needed to be done, and to top it off had great prices. With my husband being out of town, I called my mom to come get the kids out of the house, as the smell was so bad. (Thanks, Mom.) I then called Greg back and asked him to clean the carpets.

He was back at my house within an hour. When he arrived he had his son Nick with him. I found out Greg was going out of town that evening but knew I was in a major panic situation, so he got his son Nick to do the job. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you, and thank you Nick for the great job!

The students and staff at Rifle Middle School would like to extend our deep appreciation to the sponsors of the Green Mile program. This program was a challenge to recycle one item for each inch in a mile, to show how small efforts can add up to bring about large results. Although we did fall short of our goal, we did recycle over 50,000 items in one month. Our sponsors graciously agreed to honor their pledges since we did come close to our goal.

The sponsors of this program are Alpine Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, Rifle City Market, and Rifle Wal-Mart. Their donations in support of the Green Mile will be used to plant trees on the Rifle Middle School playground. Through their generous donations, RMS students have not only learned about the benefits of recycling, but also that their efforts are supported by their community.

It is a pleasure to be involved in a program that encourages recycling, develops community support, and results in the planting of trees. Thanks to Alpine Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, Rifle City Market, and Rifle WalMart for making this possible.
