Readers Say Thanks

We would like to thank all those who helped create such an amazing opportunity for a homeless family in Apple Tree. The support of communities in the valley afforded the Angel Project the ability to change this family’s life. After being homeless for over a year, the Kansas’ and their three small children were able to cross the threshold of their fully furnished trailer. Renovation and upgrades throughout created a dwelling, and once the children ran bright-eyed to their new bedrooms, it became a home.Thank you to all who collectively contributed time, service and supplies to help this project come to fruition. We would like to recognize you for making this dream become a reality.

While the results of Tuesday’s RFSD election are unofficial, I believe they are conclusive enough to warrant a thank-you from me to the people who supported me in the campaign, voted for me, and gave me guidance as I prepared for the campaign. The hard work begins shortly. I look forward to working with other board members, district office staff, parents, principals, and teachers in our schools.During my campaign, I promised to listen and respond promptly on issues in front of the district. I will keep this pledge. Furthermore, many of the issues raised in the campaign, by all candidates, need to be addressed as we progress forward and to build on the work that has begun on some issues.Lastly, I want to thank Bruce and Brad for their work on the board. They gave an enormous amount of their time and effort as board members to the schools and the children. The fact we may differ, in some areas, on how to achieve the district’s goals in no way diminishes the contributions and commitments they selflessly made. I believe our society is strong because although we might have common goals, we also have an opportunity to differ on how we achieve these goals in a civil manner.Bill LamontCarbondale

Those of you who missed the Veterans Day performance at Glenwood Springs Middle School missed a truly inspirational event. I just wanted to take a moment and thank Ms. Courier, Mr. Merritt and the Glenwood Springs Middle School Choir and Band for a first-class performance. If you have any concerns about what our schools and children are capable of, this was a must-see. Thank you also to all the veterans who attended. And thank you, vets! Ed RosenbergGlenwood Springs
