Readers Say Thanks
We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has reached out to our family over the past few months. We have received many so wonderful phone calls, cards, meals and prayers. We appreciate each and every one. We have known that we live in a supportive community, but to be the recipients of such generosity has been very humbling to us.We would also like to thank the many medical professionals who touched our lives over the past six months: Dr. Brokering and the staff at Glenwood Medical Associates; Dr. Ross and the staff at Roaring Fork Surgical; Dr. Borges, Laura Guerrero and the staff at Valley View Hospital Oncology; and Valley View Hospital Day Surgery. Everyone we have come in contact with has been kind, caring and compassionate. We would also like to thank Reverend Rich Stoakes, Nancy Smucker and everyone at Rifle United Methodist Presbyterian Church. We are so grateful for the support we have received. Looking back, we can see how much more difficult things would have been without our friends. You have made these past few months so much more bearable. Thank you.Bryan and Dawn Burgess, Rifle

One of the great things about living in a small town is the people who live there. In Silt, we are very lucky to have the Burning Mountains Fire Protection District looking out for us, should we need them. The staff of the Silt Branch Library would like to thank the three volunteers who took the time to come to Storytime to share fire safety with the kids. The kids enjoyed getting in the fire truck, hearing the siren, and seeing the ladder extended all the way up. They were thrilled to get goody bags and fire hats. Some kids came back days later, wearing their hats. Thank you so much for sharing your time, knowledge, and skills.Ann Nicholson, youth services librarian, Silt Branch Library
