I would like to publicly thank David Fautsko for promptly contacting the Glenwood Springs Police Department, and I would also like to thank the police department for promptly responding to a burglary at Paradise Day Spa. I understand that David took it upon himself to go after the men seen in Paradise Day Spa. Because of their action, I was able to retrieve a good portion of the more than $500 worth of product and cash that was taken. I also heard through the grapevine that two weeks later, David saw suspicious action in the Penrose Plaza parking lot, as persons were looking in parked cars. I heard he took it upon himself to approach them, which kept another theft from happening.Thank you, David. You are my human angel.Deborah KorbelParadise Day Spa owner

The Glenwood Springs Art Guild would like to extend a warm thank-you to our community for your support of our 43rd annual Fall Art Festival. We had a very successful year, with many of you joining us. We look forward to the Fall Art Festival all year and, as always, our community turned out to support us and our efforts in promoting the arts in our valley. With such a supportive community, the arts in the valley will thrive and many generations to come will be benefited.As we are packing the boxes and materials to be used again next year, we reminisce about this years festival. We remember our ever-faithful Purchase Patrons, our walk-in viewers, the artists who produce such beautiful work, the City of Glenwood for their support, the Ramada Inn for their extra work, our sponsors for their tireless support, our local newspapers and radio stations, the companies who so generously donated door prizes, our merchant display participants, the Glenwood Springs Chamber for their support, and most of all the Art Guild members who donated hours of their time once again to the festival. The Fall Art Festival would not be the finest and largest non-juried art show in the state without the gifts of time, talent and goods given by the members of our community. We had another awesome show of art this year, and all of the proceeds will be funneled back into arts education materials and scholarships for our valley. If we spend our lives giving what we have to enrich the lives of others, we have spent them well indeed! Thank you!Arlene Lawcoordinator, 40th annual Fall Art FestivalGlenwood Springs Art Guild
