A big thank-you to Jeanine Rose for coming to my home on Christmas Eve night to deliver some wonderful books and movies to my home. She and her daughter hand-picked the books and movies, since I was house-bound due to surgeries in December and November.

Thank you, Jeanine, you made my recovery so much nicer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Coach is a decent man

My daughter plays on the Rifle junior varsity basketball team. Our girls have been playing with only five players for a few weeks.

On Tuesday night they had the opportunity to play the Glenwood Demons. The GSHS JV Coach, Craig Amichaux, was very kind to our girls. He called time-outs when he didn’t need to so our girls could have an opportunity to catch their breath. He didn’t press.

I wasn’t able to attend because I have an awful cold and I didn’t want to give it to anyone else. My daughter told me the game wasn’t close. I’m sure if it was, he would have coached differently, because it is, after all, a game and both sides are trying to win. But he was very kind when he could be.

My sincere thanks go out to Coach Amichaux. It was very decent of him.

Thank you very much.

On behalf of the CMC – Spring Valley Theatre Department, we would like to send out a gigantic thank you to our community. From the support of all who attended our recent production of “The Vagina Monologues,” we not only sold out all three of our benefit performances, but we were able to achieve our goal of increasing awareness towards the prevention of violence against women and girls worldwide, and raise money for the following organizations: Advocate Safehouse Project, Childhelp River Bridge Center, and the International V-Day Organization’s Spotlight on the Women of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A few individuals were instrumental in helping us with this project, and at the risk of missing a few they are: Julie and Karen at the Advocate Safehouse Project, Susan and Leah from Childhelp River Bridge Center, Lauren from S.A.N.E., Gabe at KMTS, Cindy and Steve at KDNK, April and Kelley at the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, everyone at The Print Works, and of course all of the administration, faculty, staff and students at CMC – Spring Valley Campus.

Congratulations to the incredible cast: Heather, Kira, Casey, Nancy, Chip and Samantha ” they did a fantastic job dealing with a difficult subject matter; and an extra “Bravo!” to our director, Gary Ketzenbarger, for taking on the challenge of this worthwhile cause.

China Kwan, producer ” “The Vagina Monologues.”
