It takes a village sometimes that village comes in the way of a ride to a game, making phone calls, running home to get another jersey or an extra pair of soccer socks, picking up trash after a game or being there when the tears start to roll. It takes a village, volunteer coaches with busy lives making the time referees who sign up for more than just officiating a game and parents who give up their weekends to cheer their kids on. Now thats a village we can all be proud of. To all, thank you so much for your hard work, time and love of the sport. Basalt Soccer Club

Thanks to all those who contributed to and supported my campaign for Senate District 7. I very much appreciate the counsel and kind words I have received during and after the campaign. While I wish the results were otherwise, the campaign between Josh Penry and me was courteous and civil, and I congratulate Josh on his substantial victory.Dana Barker Parachute
