To the farmers, ranchers and patrons of the Silt Co-op, I want to thank you for your patronage over the years. To me, most of you have been like family and have treated me the same. I thank you for the times you have allowed me to share with you, when we laughed about things that just needed laughing about; for the times that we have had to shed tears for the tragedies and hard times and for the prayers to get through them. I thank you for when you gave your word, it was better than any attorney-signed contract. I thank you for taking the responsibility of being farmers and ranchers and for the immense knowledge that I have learned from all of you. The world needs you. I will greatly miss seeing you come through the doors of the Silt Co-op. I thank you for letting me have the honor to serve you over the last 25 years. Thank you again.Terry J. DavisBranch Manager Silt Co-op

Heartfelt appreciation to the Glenwood Springs Fire Department and EMTS Captain Chad Harris and Harlan Nimmo for providing free CPR class to a group of ten Glenwood Springs/Roaring Fork School District (RFSD) staff on May 19. The Glenwood Springs Fire Department also is contributing to the heart health of the entire community by paying for one half ($1,000) the cost of an automated external defibrillator (AED), which will be located at Glenwood Springs High School. Training for the AED is also included in this American Heart Association CPR class. The AED is a critical step in the chain of survival during sudden cardiac arrest. Early defibrillation is the only definitive treatment for sudden cardiac arrest. Thank you for this collaborative project with RFSD in making our community safer. Health is academic.Mary Jo Spain R.N. MSNschool nurse, Glenwood Springs
