I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Carbondale Fire Department, Ron Leach, Rob Goodwin, Hank Van Berlo and crew for their prompt service in response to the fire in Rob’s Automotive Center at the Roaring Fork Valley Co-op.

The quick response to this incident reminds us all to be grateful to the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep our small community of Carbondale a safe place to live and work. Also, they were very professional and maintained the highest ethical standards concerning follow-up after this incident.

Again, a sincere thank you for all your efforts in the early morning hours of Sept. 19, 2011.

Kirk Carlson, general manager

Roaring Fork Valley Co-op


I want to extend my thanks to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park for its outstanding support of LIFT-UP this summer, along with everyone who donated food during the Music on the Mountain series.

I normally don’t send letters to the paper after food drives, otherwise I’d be in the paper nearly every week. But Glenwood Caverns went above and beyond with nine food drives this year.

Their goal is to collect 10,000 food items for LIFT-UP, and they’re currently near 7,000. There’s one opportunity left to bring a food item and get a free tram ride to the top of the mountain to hear some great music, this Saturday, Sept. 24.

So I urge folks to help the Caverns reach its goal, while having a good time yourself. It’s community support like this that makes it possible for LIFT-UP to provide year-round assistance to local families in need.

Mike Powell

executive director, LIFT-UP
