Stolen political yard signs
For the second time the signs to vote No on 300, have been stolen from our yard! When we noticed the signs missing, we immediately went to the provider, who originally give us the signs to post, only to discover that other replaced signs had been stolen.
This just goes to show what the opponents of 300 are made of, they are nothing more than thieves in the night.
Stealing the signs might be only a misdemeanor but since they came into our yard to get them, we can add criminal trespass to the charge when they get caught. ~David Roesch Walsenburg
Christian music brings peace and joy
Salvation is an opportunity to spend Eternity after death in Heaven with Your Creator. This opportunity is a free gift offered to all, only by faith in Christ Jesus, without surrendering our lives to Christ before passing in this life, the opposite comes true, Eternal separation from God your Father. Let’s come out and make a change together. The record label God Over Money is a rap/hip hop group dedicated to spreading the life changing Gospel of Christ. This event will be sponsored to make it free to the entire community. Come out share Christ’s peace and joy as we enjoy some wonderful worship music. If anyone would like more information, would like to donate, or become a sponsor, please call Derek and Jamie Zeman. He hears our prayers, thanks and may God Bless us all. 719-281-9927 ~Derek and Jamie Zeman Walsenburg
Letter to the Editor and Winter Sports Enthusiasts:
Spanish Peaks Alpine Alliance (SPAA) is hosting our first winter event on Saturday, November 19, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. at the La Veta Inn, which is a meet-and-greet social hour and free film, as well as give-away prizes. All are invited to attend, and we hope to bring together people who are interested in alpine sports, such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing and backcountry touring.
SPAA is a non-profit organization newly formed to promote, monitor and encourage participation in alpine recreation activities in Huerfano County. Our organization is working with Huerfano County through their newly established recreation advisory committee to help identify, maintain and promote usage of designated trails throughout the county. Not only will our efforts create recreational opportunities, but also will promote tourism to the area and stimulate our local businesses.
As part of this effort, the county purchased a snowmobile and groomer to maintain the identified trails. Our volunteer members will perform the grooming, report on snow conditions and conduct various events to promote alpine activities. The pilot trail will be on Cordova Pass Road and will be open to the public for snowshoe and cross country enthusiasts. There will be a sign-in box at the trailhead, which will help us monitor usage.
Please come to our event on November 19 to support our efforts and like/follow us at https://facebook.com/spanishpeaksalpinealliance. It will be a great time and an excellent way to meet people who share a love for outdoor activities. Put it on your calendars! ~Janet Richards, President Spanish Peaks Alpine Alliance Cuchara
