In the fun loving spirit of Kiss-n-Squeal, The Property Shop piggies have been very good-natured about the blatant theft of their pig heads in broad daylight from The Property Shop fence. After over a week of patiently waiting for the return of the pig heads, The Property Shop piggies have no choice but to resort to more drastic measures. If the pig-nappers would like to see “pinky”, the well-loved sock pig again, all 7 pig heads must be returned to The Property Shop fence immediately. If not, “pinky” could have a tragic accident … need we say more? Pinky is longing for home and will gladly be returned to the YouthZone office once the 7 pig heads are safely home.Pig sick,Team Property Shop

The Snowmass Recreation Department held its 2nd Annual SkateMASS skateboarding event on July 24 under hot sunny skies. Beginner through advanced division skate were held plus “Best Trick” in these categories, and the end of the day featured a “Pool Jam” session with the advanced skaters. Eight kids competed in the beginner category. Clare Mulvey won the female division and Jack Coyne won the men’s. In the intermediate, Craig DeFeo took the honors and Derek Seurynk won the Advanced Division and $200 main prize from Red Bull. The “Best Trick” saw the competitors push the limits of the skate park and also their bodies. Jack Coyne again grabbed the honors for the beginner division, while Mathew Cunningham won the intermediate division with a 10-foot launch onto flat, to the relief of the crowd. Jeff Wexley took the hotly contested advanced division and then Derek Seurynk won the “Bowl Jam” and the $100 prize from Alpine Bank.

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.
