In search of that bear photo

I want to pass along my thanks to the two volunteer photographers that helped us out a bunch when Kelley Cox was on vacation.

Kyle Simonson and Sharon Yoast worked very hard and got some nice photos for the Post Independent. Thanks for all your work, it really helped us out during a stretch when we were short-handed.

The Glenwood Springs Rotary House is nearing completion, and there’s an open house for those who want to check out the new home.

The house is located on Four Mile Ranch at 210 Maroon Drive. Times for the open house are 3-7 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The house will soon be put up for sale to benefit the Glenwood Rotary, which puts the money back into the community via scholarships and donations to other nonprofits.

Another example of the economic woes of newspapers, the Denver Post just announced an increase for its Monday through Saturday publications. The rack price will rise to 75 cents with the Sunday paper remaining $1.50.

We are indeed in a rare area where so many free publications are available.

Everybody loves bear stories. The recent bear who went into Sig Olsen’s home then moseyed down to the Hotel Colorado grabbed a lot of media exposure.

We heard that someone snapped a photo of the small female bear when it was in the Hotel Colorado, but we never saw it, and we sure would like to.

Not only that, but John Burns, the general manager of the Hotel Colorado, would love to get his hands on a copy of that photo. He’s also offering a little reward for that photo. So if you’re the person who snapped that picture, drop me a line or call the hotel.

On July 5 there was a fairly rare occurrence at Lakota Canyon Ranch Golf Club. Someone hit a hole-in-one. That’s a great feat, but not all that rare.

The rare part of this feat came a few holes later when a second member of the same foursome also found the cup with a single shot.

Playing on the New Castle course, Carl Maulbetsch had a hole-in-one on the par 3 third hole, then Susan Goldberg drained her ace on the par 3 ninth hole. Isa and Joe House witnessed both memorable shots.

Final Thought: Lance Armstrong is grabbing headlines in France once again. And the French have got to be hating that. Lance is one of those people you don’t want to bet against. But how 37-year-old legs do in the Pyrenees and Alps will show if he really is super human.
