LETTER: Water conservation necessary for community sustainability
Posted: July 31, 2015

I always try to be mindful of my environmental impact. Living close to gorgeous mountains has a way of inspiring me to recycle, to ride my bike instead of driving or cut down on watering the lawn. While there are so many aspects of our environment to be conscious of, one has become a priority for our communities, elected officials and diverse economic players – water.

LETTER: Awesome Burro Days!
Posted: July 31, 2015

First of all, WOW and THANK YOU!! What a great Burro Days weekend we had in Fairplay. If you didn’t already know it, we all live in a fabulous community with fabulous residents. The support of our community for Burro Days each year is incredible and so appreciated, from the huge number of volunteers that are needed to the local sponsorships, I THANK YOU! Not only did we have a record number of burro racers, 66, but the attendance was through the roof! All of our events throughout the weekend had great attendance and 13 local non-profit organizations benefitted through various means from Burro Days not to mention that the South Park Schools will receive net proceeds from the weekend.

Right at Home with Native Plants
Updated: July 24, 2015 - 2:22 pm

Now is a great time to seed or add transplants because of our warm days and recent rainfalls. If you enjoy seeing the natural landscape around your home but want to add some more color, planting native plants might be just the right touch for you. Native plants have adapted to our changeable Colorado weather patterns that include heavy spring snow, hail, wind, drought, early fall frosts or soil variations from rock to peat bog. Once established, some native plants may never need to be watered. The establishment period can range from a few months to several years after planting, but then the supplemental watering can gradually be reduced.

Picking Perennials

Easy perennial gardening in high altitude conditions includes preparing the growing area thoroughly and choosing plants that are naturally tough. If you choose the right plants, good basic care is all your flowers will need.

Democratically Speaking

Burro Days this year was fun and, for the most part, tame, with great weather and people from in and out of state, affiliated and unaffiliated, Republicans and Democrats politely talking about politics and the state of the presidential election. That’s a topic for down the road, I suspect.

A Republican Perspective

We need to think about renaming our country to the United States of Regulations. The latest batch of rules that are coming from Washington are further examples of their desire to control all aspects of our lives, from rules that govern what we are supposed to eat, to rules that mandate how products are manufactured.
