Readers say thanks
In assessing the positives and negatives of the past year, we realized that many words of appreciation are due to all who helped restore our home after a water leak and subsequent damage. First of all, we would like to thank State Farm Insurance who most professionally handled our claim even while we were out of the country. After returning home, we quickly learned that a big round of applause was due to D.M. Neuman Co. who oversaw every part of the restoration. In particular we would like to thank Jason Neuman who walked the second mile while making sure that we (perhaps of a picky persuasion) were satisfied with all of the workmanship. We also would like to express gratitude to John Crump from Carpet One and Stephen Davis of Tileworks Inc. along with many others.Jim & Laura WrightGlenwood Springs
2003 was the 21st year for the Glenwood Springs Lions Club to install Christmas garlands in the downtown area. Saturday, Nov. 22, was the coldest day weve ever experienced for doing this decorating. In spite of the cold and snow, seven students from Glenwood Springs High School turned out to help us. We want to thank Cheree Carver, Ryan Erickson, Carlyn Farquhar, Cody Hillin, John Jay, Amber Sutherland and Rachel Zancanella for their very able assistance.Thanks also go to John Hines, Doug Hazzard and the City Electric Department staff for cleaning and storing the garlands, and to Lynn Bader at the Flower Mart for tying the 180 red bows and ribbon streamers.Lion Tamer Frank Thornton was once again in charge of the many details needed to complete the project. He and his wife Nancy started the program and have helped with it ever since.Sincerely,Jack CoatesGlenwood Springs Lions Club

Another Glenwood Springs City Council election has passed, but we doubt about two-thirds of Glenwood residents even noticed — certainly not based on the pathetic 31% turnout in balloting that concluded April 6.
