Rifle photographer offers free photo shoot to families with members in the military

RIFLE, Colorado – During the month of September, families with members in the military can enjoy a special deal, courtesy of Karen Skelly Photography. Each family can have a photo shoot for free, along with a free 8×10 portrait.

Skelly, who helped out a day care center in Rifle last summer, thinks that giving back is important. “I try to do something at least once a year, each summer anyway, that helps out the community in some way,” she says.

“It was one of those things I thought would be helpful … for the people who have family in the military,” says Skelly. “I though it might be a way to help them out and make them happy.”

Additionally, she credits the poor economy with part of why she is making this gesture. “I’m trying to help out people who may have been hit a little harder than I have been.”

Skelly has several places that she likes to take people for photos, because of their pretty backgrounds. She tends to prefer to take pictures in the evening. Because of that fact, she’d like people to start calling now, so she can book them early.

Karen Skelly Photography can be reached at 625-3468. Her studio is located at 762 E. 18th St. in Rifle.

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.
