After two previous attempts at retirement, Glenwood Springs local Richard Scranton decided Christmas Eve would mark the retirement date after 38 years as bakery manager for the local City Market. Store manager Marty Martin stated, I could write a chapter on Richard, but to sum it up he’s a wonderful person and his leadership, sense of humor and his ability to help maintain City Market’s #1 position in town means he’ll be missed by all of us. Martin added that Scranton has been one of the finest employees he’d ever worked with. Assistant manager Steve Stilson, known for his dry wit, said simply, He’ll be back in three weeks. Scranton plans to enjoy his retirement by taking classes in photography, Latin American Spanish and accounting, not to mention joining the gym!
