The New Castle LIFT-UP Food Bank sends its warmest thanks to local churches, schools, scouts clubs and individuals who continually donate food.

You have been helping us assist families in our New Castle area who need a little extra boost in their lives. We at LIFT-UP are very grateful for your generosity. The latest endeavors on our behalf were the library’s “Food for Fines,” and the Coal Ridge High School’s Empty Bowls night.

Our New Castle Food Bank is open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the old church building next to the New Castle Museum on Fourth Street. The phone number is 984-2115. Come see us if you need food assistance. For emergency help, call Betty Arthur at 984-0373.

Please do not leave clothing or other non-food items at our location. LIFT-UP has a thrift store in Rifle for those purposes, please call 625-2757.

Basalt Recreation just finished up another very successful basketball season. We would like to extend a big thank-you to our volunteer coaches who dedicate so much of their time teaching our young ball players sportsmanship, dedication and the fundamentals of the game. Thanks to Alexa Aitken, Steve Aitken, Debbie Alcorta (double thanks to Debbie for coordinating her time between two teams), Randy Crawford, Paul Gonzales, John Krueger, Gregg Mackey, Doug Olson, and Lance Schoon. Also I would like to thank the parents for getting the kids to practices and games on time. Thanks to all the players for their commitment to the season. Also I would like to thank our referee coordinator, Chaz Capobianco, and all our referees for bringing their expertise to the games. You guys were great!

Words cannot express my gratitude to the wonderful people and businesses that make up this community. The outpouring of prayers, support and donations have been overwhelming.

I would personally like to thank the Winchester Nite Club and staff for hosting this event on March 1, and all of the people who gave so generously to make my benefit a huge success.

Although my battle has just begun, sometimes just knowing people care makes each day a little brighter.

Thank you all so much for your kindness.
