Yes to 3B for schools

Dear Editor,
When I walk into a classroom, everyone in that room knows who I am. It does not matter if it is a student, teacher or other staff member. Teachers here in Ouray know students in a way that some are not accustomed to. Work is designed to meet student needs. Staff and teachers care for students on a personal and academic level. From my perspective I could not imagine giving up this kind of treatment. I want to preserve this kind of education. Ouray School is one of the best in all of Colorado and has been recognized nationally. Meanwhile, I have witnessed the deterioration of our historic and famous building. It is in desperate need of help.

Digust for campaigns

Dear Editor, 
I would like to express my disgust at the campaign for State House
District 59. I guess it is too late to throw these two out and start over
with new candidates. It seems like every day we get flyers in the mail that
sound like elementary school arguments. "Mike broke my crayons! J Paul
stole my lunch money! Well, you're a wiener face! Oh yeah, you're a poo-poo
head!"
I do not mean to insult elementary school kids. This race seems worse than most, which is a pretty low standard to fall below.

The impact of our pristine views

Dear Editor,
I read with interest your recent article, “VIR Road Expansion Compromise Proposed.” This, as you made clear, refers to Section 9 of the Ouray County Land Use Code dealing with visual impacts. The process may almost be over: one workshop, a Planning Commission Public Hearing and a Board of County Commissioners Public Hearing. Looks as though we may have come to the end.

Black swifts need room at Box Canyon Falls

Dear Editor,
 
I recently visited your wonderful town as part of my summer vacation to the western states. It is indeed a beautiful and special place. The townsfolk are warm and inviting. While in Ouray, I visited Box Canyon Falls in hopes of seeing the little black swift that nests there. I am an avid birder and have long hoped to see this marvelous bird. I was not disappointed! With the help of Sue Hirshman, I was able to view four nests with chicks! I was truly elated. The black swift was my 1000th bird to be seen and identified since I began birding 39 years ago. What a fitting species to mark this “bucket list” goal.

Real men don't shoot cows

Dear Editor,
It takes a real man to shoot a cow in the face with an arrow. I'll add $200 to the reward Cristy Orvis is offering for information leading to the arrest of the guilty idiot. Anyone else want to chip in?

Rodeo weekend ahead

Dear Editor,
Oh, how I love this weekend. I would encourage everyone to come experience some of the many wonderful aspects of my all time favorite local event, the Ouray County Fair and Ranch Rodeo. There will be a lot going on at the 4-H Event Center, the  Barn and the Arena from Thursday through Saturday. The open class is really fun. Most all entries are accepted and most all entries win a ribbon! Bring any of your fine entries to compete from 9:00 a.m.- noon on Thursday.
The new grandstands will be officially unveiled Thursday afternoon, followed by the wonderful antique tractor pull that evening. By Friday, the resident barn swallows will be in a terrible twitter over the invasion of their space by lowing steers, talking turkeys, sleeping pigs, growling sheep and at least one crowing rooster.
