Readers say thanks
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Bill Barrett Corporation for being a good neighbor this winter. While drilling for gas and oil in our neighborhood, they have done much more than we could have reasonably expected to make our lives easier. They have improved and maintained roads beyond what was needed for their operations. They have graveled private driveways in the area of their operations and promptly plowed them after each snow. At Christmas time, they came by with hams and popcorn, just some of the many friendly and helpful actions on their part.When there has been a potential conflict between their needs and ours, they, and their employees, have gone out of their way to minimize these conflicts.Thank you, Bill Barrett Corporation, employees, and contractors.Don and Joan EpperlyPaul and Christy CutrightDave and Varie ReichardtJosh and Lynn WilsonBill and Eunice SmithJames Kalmonall of Silt
I would like to take a few minutes to thank a large number of people. I was recently in a car accident and injured badly. I don’t have insurance, and because of the injuries, I am still unable to work. After the accident, I had friends, family, and so many strangers immediately come to my aid. It has given me a new respect for the people of this valley, and what it means to be a good neighbor. I would like to give special thanks to Butch and staff of Butch’s Smokehouse in Glenwood Springs, for organizing a benefit on my behalf and helping me to raise funds. I would also like to mention Vee and staff of The Hideout Bar in Parachute, for organizing a second benefit and also setting up donation cans in various places throughout the valley. More thanks, of course, to Scott and Mona of Down Valley Septic in Rifle. for their many generous donations.I really want to emphasize how much it means to me that so many people have been willing to help in my time of need. Thank you to anyone who made a donation, and to everyone who attended either benefit. Thank you so much to all my friends and family. Your support and generosity have made this ordeal so much easier to bear. I can say now, more than ever, I am proud to be part of this community.Dawn RydenNew Castle
