I would like to take a moment and say thank you to all of those who helped out this past Saturday clearing the field at Stubler Memorial Stadium. The effort put forth by this community is just another example of why I am so thankful that I have chosen to raise my children here. Making one phone call and talking to three moms turned an incredibly snowy field at 10 a.m. into a playable surface by 1 p.m. The hard work continued during the game by numerous individuals as the snow continued to fall and the second-half surface played better than the first. The officiating crew wanted to say thanks for all of the hard work and commended the entire community for its efforts.

What wonderful role models our kids have. I truly believe that service is the highest form of caring for others and Saturday showed that we have an incredibly caring citizenry. I will follow up later with specific names and individual efforts but for now, know that you have been a gleaming example of what a small town is all about.

P.S. – We play in the quarterfinals at 1 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 21, at Valor Christian High School. Hope to see everyone there!

On behalf of the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association and the Glenwood Springs Tourism Board, I’m writing to thank and recognize the nine amazingly resourceful people who put together the Glenwood Downtown Market for its fifth, and arguably, most successful season.

Jan Harr, Cindy Svatos, Nancy Page, Erin Lee, Sharill Hawkins, Rona Chorman, Sue Kuhn, Sue Sharpe and Cindy Hines are the creative minds and strong backs with the will to bring together local farmers, ranchers, chefs, musicians, artists and shoppers for the weekly Tuesday tradition. Now the event draws hundreds of people to Centennial Park each week for produce, whole foods, entertainment and one-of-a-kind creations.

Truly a labor of love, the market provides a venue for catching up with neighbors, slowing down the pace and relaxing a little in summer months, and exploring downtown Glenwood Springs. And our visitors love it just as much as residents do.

Although it’s snowy November, we’re already thinking of sunny afternoons and anticipating another season of bluegrass music, Palisade peaches, Olathe corn and homegrown fun.

Thank you!

Kate Collins

VP of Tourism Marketing, Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association

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.
