Showtime with Shania

Frosty and Carly Merriott of Carbondale got a bit more than they expected when they accompanied their 9-year-old daughter Shiloh and her best friend Zoe Levine, also 9, to see Canadian country music superstar Shania Twain perform at the Pepsi Center earlier this month.

The girls were taken on stage and got to help out singing Twain’s hit, “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.” Frosty says the kids, both graduates of the Earthbeat Choir, received thunderous applause from the audience and some hugs and autographs from Shania herself ” and Frosty says he was amazed the youngsters were able to sleep at all that night after their big experience.

Audubon helps kids, helps birds

One of the season’s most successful events for kids brought more than 40 kids to River Valley Ranch in Carbondale on Dec. 7. The young people took part in a workshop designed to help winter birds, organized by the Roaring Fork Audubon Society. Children made various edible ornaments from bird seed and other ingredients and used them to decorate a pine tree at the ranch. The aim of the program was to encourage children early in life to honor the needs of birds and other wildlife and to enjoy birding.
