Cobra Patrol Boy Scouts Pack 225 of Glenwood Springs made the dragon as a part of the requirements of their Showman Activity Award in Webelos Scouting. They won first place for the best den project at the March Pack meeting. They were invited to display their dragon at the Aspen Art Museum at the "Valley Kids 2005" Exhibition, which runs until May 15 in downtown Aspen.

Sopris Elementary School third grade teacher April Walker earned the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year on National Teacher Recognition Day. Each store honors one local teacher, and local winners are eligible to apply for state and national awards.

Walker, who is retiring this year after 21 years in the Roaring Fork School District, received a gift certificate and a $1,000 grant for the school. Nomination forms for the award are available each February at Wal-Mart to honor top K-12 public or private school teachers.
