A trio of hardworking county residents will be recognized Feb. 20 at the annual Ridgway-Ouray Community Council spaghetti dinner.


Don Paulson and Beverly and Jorg Angehrn will receive the Outstanding Citizen Award for their efforts and work throughout Ouray County.
The ROCC dinner will also feature a climate change speaker from the University of Colorado Boulder.
Beverly said she didn’t expect the Outstanding Citizen Award at all.
“We were very surprised because we’ve felt like we were sort of under the radar with our volunteering,” she said.
Jorg, on the other hand, had different thoughts.

A family full of cheer

When it comes to experiencing a Super Bowl, the closest most of us get is a seat in front of the television with a bowl of chips. For the mother of a Ouray woman, the thrill of cheerleading for the Kansas City Chiefs in the first ever Super Bowl game in 1967 gave her an up-close experience most can only dream about.
Cindy Rose, whose daughter Kendra Manley is a stylist at Salon Envy, got to experience the sights and sounds from the sideline, as the Kansas City Chiefs took on the the Green Bay Packers in 1967.
And though Rose didn't get to experience a Chiefs' victory, she still cherishes the memories of her experience in the big game. As it turned out, she passed her passion along to Manley, who became a Chiefs cheerleader as well. Yes, like mother, like daughter. Except only one got to the big game.

CITY OF OURAY Pipe repairs in holding pattern


The trajectory of the pipe burst during IceFest is visible through coloration of the snow and ice directly below the penstock. Because the pipe had small leaks, some spots of brown ice could have been detected before the incident as well. Plaindealer photo by Tori Sheets
