By Caleb Stento

How appropriate that a festival that comes together each year supported by the volunteer spirit of giving was capped off in that same spirit. Ines Papert, who won first place in the mixed climbing and speed climbing female divisions, turned around and gave her winnings from the speed competition back to Ouray Ice Park, Inc. (OIPI).

Town of Ridgway: Local doc builds new practice

by Mary Pat Haddock
marypat@ouraynews.com

When Dr. David Sherwood first saw Ridgway while backpacking across the state in 1988, he looked out over the valley and thought, “this is it.” When Sherwood was offered the opportunity a few years later to practice medicine in Ridgway, he describes the decision as “a no brainer.” Sherwood now says he “can’t imagine practicing medicine anywhere else.”

Sherwood is in the process of opening his own private practice in the Ridgway Pharmacy building. He had been discussing the potential benefits of the move with his wife and Ridgway Pharmacy owner, Donna Sherwood, for some time. When Dale Yocum, the last of Sherwood’s original Mountain Medical Center co-workers, left the center, Sherwood decided it was time to begin conversations about moving along as well. All concerned parties agreed it was in their mutual best interest to make the move sooner rather than later, he said.

Ouray City Council approves OCRA’s 2013 contract

By Caleb Stento

On Monday evening, without hesitation, Ouray City Council unanimously approved entering into a marketing contract with the Ouray Chamber Resort Association (OCRA) for 2013.
One specific request in the contract between OCRA and the city is that OCRA focus their efforts on expanding year-round tourism, with special emphasis on the shoulder seasons. In 2012 OCRA made great strides toward meeting this request with the introduction of the wildly successful Mud Fest.
