Readers Say Thanks

We want to thank the 102 sponsors that have pledged their support for the Glenwood Springs Summer of Jazz 2004 (that includes Downtown Drug).

Our goal was to raise the monies necessary for the upcoming season before we booked the bands.

Well, we are up to five concerts. That will take us through June.

If you haven’t pledged yet and want music in July, our address is P.O. Box 42, Glenwood Springs, CO 81602, or our phone number is 945-4500.

See you in the park.

On behalf of the staff of the Glenwood Springs Branch Library, I would like to convey appreciation to everyone for their cards and expressions of sympathy following the passing of our longtime colleague, Megan Kinser.

Such a loss is difficult to bear, but our grief is eased by the support of others. We all feel fortunate to be part of such a wonderful community.

Pat Conway,

This letter is to thank all the friends and neighbors who helped and supported us after fire destroyed our home on Riverside Drive in Glenwood Springs, the evening of Saturday, Nov. 8, of last year, and to ask that anyone with any information about the fire come forward to help in the investigation.

The Post Independent article that followed did a fine job of pointing the finger of cause at my 16-year-old daughter and friends. An investigation conducted by an independent company from the Front Range determined that the fire was a result of a person or persons other than my daughter and friends, pouring gasoline on the back deck, providing an ignition source, and then slipping off into the night.

Arson, right here in Happy Valley.

No one was hurt in the fire or the fighting of the fire, the home was insured and the Glenwood Springs Fire Department did an outstanding job.

The sad thing is that the most affected by this event is my youngest daughter, who was three years old when we moved to Riverview Drive. The home she grew up in, her room, her things, her memories are all up in smoke, with the bonus of having to deal with the scorn of people who believe everything they read in the newspaper.

If anyone has any information at all, please contact the Glenwood Springs Police Department.

I would like to thank the citizens of Carbondale for their vote of support to extend the half-cent recreation sales tax and to issue revenue bonds to build a recreation center, new trails and bike paths, and begin construction on the Gateway River Park and Carbondale Nature Park.

The Parks and Recreation Commission will continue their diligent efforts representing your wishes and desires as the town moves forward on developing these new recreation and park projects.

I would also like to thank the outgoing Town Trustees and Town Manager John Hier, who have showed so much support for parks and recreation during the past three years that I’ve been here. We have accomplished so much, with much more to come.

Congratulations to the newly elected Board of Trustee members. I look forward to working with you as we embark on accomplishing the future parks and recreation needs and desires of our citizens.

Recreation Director

I just want to thank all the ladies and other judges who were up till 1:30 a.m. April 7 meticulously counting the vote by hand for the Carbondale election. It’s another example of work done by the trustworthy, dedicated, endlessly working and fine ladies of these valleys.

I love my town.
