“Senior Matters … because seniors matter” would like to thank the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo for the generous donation of $2,500. Senior Matters volunteers have hosted the snow cone booth during the past several rodeo seasons as a fundraiser and have been quite successful.

Senior Matters, a nonprofit, will use the donation to present programs offered at no or low cost for seniors in the Carbondale area. We thank the rodeo board for choosing Senior Matters as the recipient of their hard-earned money and certainly hope to continue our relationship with the rodeo.

Thank you to the Silt Historical Society breakfast donors and volunteers. The Silt Historical Society would like to thank the people who donated to breakfast on Silt Heyday: Gross Locker Plant for donating the great-tasting sausage, the Village Inn in Glenwood Springs for the pancake batter (so many people commented on the pancakes, so if you would like a good pancake breakfast, go to the Village Inn and order a short stack). Thanks also to Alice Jones for organizing the breakfast – without her we wouldn’t have had such a great meal; Bonnie Grant for the homemade syrups; and Edna and Don Pace for their continuing donations. And a big thank-you to all the volunteers who helped.

Report: Estimates of future Upper Colorado River Basin water use confound previous planning

A report released this month by the Center for Colorado River Studies says that in order to sustainably manage the river in the face of climate change, officials need alternative management paradigms and a different way of thinking compared with the status quo. Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
