Readers Say Thanks
I was quite surprised at the lack of response from some local veterinarians when I tried to remedy an unfortunate recent emergency. Mishaps with dogs rarely occur at a perfect time. After all, they’re incapable of reading a clock, aren’t cognizant of schedules, and could care less it’s a school night with dinner on the stove. Our dog experienced a tear to her side, leaving a gaping wound that wouldn’t wait for the 9 to 5 office hours the next day. Thankfully, we found an exception to this rule by way of the Valley Veterinary Clinic in Rifle. Dr. Rebecca Lemmon took my call, and within minutes we were having the injury treated, despite it being after 6 p.m. Thirty-five minutes later I was back at home, our puppy recuperating with some staples and some medicine. The staff at Valley Veterinary Clinic were understanding and very helpful through this stressful moment of the unexpected, and Dr. Lemmon did so much more than answer her phone that evening. She gained a grateful, appreciative family as clients. Our heartfelt thanks to the Valley Veterinary Clinic and its staff for helping us have peace of mind when we needed them.Jeff, Elliot & Chloe KrebillRifle
The Roaring Fork Booster Club would like to say thank you for a terrific homecoming weekend. First we have to thank the student athletes who all brought home wins last week (volleyball, soccer and football). Secondly, I would like to thank Jay Denton for painting the lines and logo onto the football field and touching up the press box; Thor Reeds for painting the outline of the Roaring Fork Logo; the Roaring Fork High School cheerleaders for blowing up the balloons and placing them all over town, as well as their spectacular half time routine; and to Kim Denton for placing signs all over town. Concession stand workers, you are the backbone to the booster program, along with the line judges for volleyball, scorekeepers, etc., and of course the fans for coming out to support the student athletes. It was a joy to see the stands full during all of the events this week.Jon Nell Loux ReedsCarbondale

A crew from the Colorado Avalanche Information Center last week cut disks of wood from trees downed by a powerful avalanche that thundered off Garrett Peak in March 2019. The samples will aid research by dendrochronologists into the epic avalanche cycle.
