I would publicly like to express my deepest appreciation to the most caring group of people at our own Valley View Hospital. They literally saved my life during a recent heart attack, and helped me and my family through this dramatic event. Everyone involved showed not only compassion and concern but also the utmost professionalism at every turn. I am deeply honored to be part of a community that contains such wonderful people.

I also want to thank all of my friends that have sent cards and flowers ” I am truly humbled at such an outpouring of love and concern for myself and my family.

On behalf of the Club Rotario Roaring Fork, we would like to thank all of the individuals and businesses that gave their support so generously for our club’s first fund-raising event. Our first annual bowling tournament was a great success, and by all accounts everyone had a great time.

Our club is the first Spanish-speaking Rotary Club in Colorado and has the particular focus of supporting our Latino community. The money raised from the tournament will be used to support educational grants for local Latino students.

On March 18, 2004, the Joint Budget Committee voted to restore $5 million of the $6 million they cut from the SB 94 Appropriation. Although the Long Bill (the State Budget Bill) is not yet complete, it is a very important step toward maintaining our community alternatives to juvenile jailing statewide and in the 9th Judicial District. I am convinced that this unamimous vote was largely a result of the tremendous support that the SB 94 program receives throughout Colorado.

I would like to thank all those who demonstrated their support of the SB 94 program in the 9th Judicial District. Your voice has been heard and is appreciated. The strong support of this community plays a vital role in our ability to carry out our mission of providing effective and innovative programs to assist youth and families on the Western Slope. While funding challenges continue to be on the horizon, with your continued support we are sure to weather every storm.
