My voice is hoarse this week from yelling at baseball games, cheering on not only my kid’s team, but sometimes the kids on the other teams, just because that’s the way it is in small towns.
And I didn’t get to drive by the IHS kids last Friday on CR 318, but if I had, I would have cheered for them, too.
And for the musicians and parents who organized Saturday’s Music Round Up, which attracted 200 people — bravo! Encore! Do it again!
Whether it’s sports, graduating, academics, turning off the TV for a day, or picking up trash, I hope you’ll join me in cheering on our local youth.
They’re showing a lot of energy and commitment, and I hope they continue making this world a better place.
In English class we have been learning about third world counties. There are many diseases that can not be cured because they don’t have any medicine.
People all through out the world need our help because they don’t have all of the things that they need to continue to survive. About 12.5 percent of people die each year of HIV/AIDS, if all of us could give one or two dollars a week to SOS Children’s Village, which is a charity that gives medicine to third world countries. We could save so many lives, and with out medication innocent people are ding each and every year and some of the big main reasons are because of bad food, unsanitary water, and pollution. If all of America could help out just a little more than we all ready do, it would make a huge difference.
There are so many things we can do to help out Africa, Mozambique, Mali, Afghanistan and all of the other third world countries there are in the world. So if you can, it would be a great help if you could just please keep caring about the world and all of the people in it. Thank You!
This weekend I was at Indian Creek Recreation area along with the Pine Valley Church Mens retreat. I am appalled at their total disregard for the desert environment or fellow campers. The took over the roads with their motorcycles and four-wheelers, roaring up and down roads and dry washes repeatedly, all day long. They disobeyed travel restrictions, leaving marked trails and creating new ones. They blasted shotguns and left fluorescent orange pieces of clay pigeons scattered across the hillside.
There are many places in Colorado where such sport is welcomed, places where it wont destroy the environment or ruin an experience for others. In planning for future events, I would hope that they consider other destinations, rather than select one that they do not appreciate.
I just got todays paper and on the back my daughters name was spelled wrong. She was one of the graduating kindergartners. The correct spelling is Mia Carrillo. Thank you. Sorry... I know this is for opinions, but I dont know how else to contact you about matters as this, on the computer.
