Michael Underwood has recently made a few changes, one of which was relocating his businesses, Better Real Estate Services Inc., Ouray Property Management and Ouray Vacation Rentals, to 505 Main St.
Underwood has been a resident of Ouray and a member of the local business community for the past eight years. He started with a little property maintenance company, which is still operating today. Underwood says of his first endeavor, “That was my niche.”
Finding a niche was just one of Underwood’s keys to success. He was in business for himself long before coming to Ouray and finds it beneficial to stay goal oriented.

by Beecher Threatt

Delays by the county's magnesium chloride vendor have held up the Road and Bridge Department's schedule for applying the dust control material. Supervisor Chris Miller told the Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday that according to the contract with Envirotech, 100,000 gallons were to be delivered by May 1, with another 104,000 gallons to follow as the county storage unit was emptied. As of last week, just 40,000 gallons had been received. That amount arrived only after County Attorney Marti Whitmore wrote to the company and pointed out it was breaching the contract with the county.

For two hours on Saturday, amateur sculptors focussed their attention on turning a five pound block of clay into a winning masterpiece in the first ever Ridgway Sculpture Contest. When director Michael McCullough gave the start signal, the room hushed, classical music played and spectators walked quietly among the 21 contestants in the Ridgway Community Room.
Co-sponsor Weehawken Creative Arts, represented by Susie Opdahl and Lissette Riviere, offered concessions and gratefully accepted donations. WCA managed pre-contest registration and marketing and assisted with planning.

Fireworks won’t go off but a show will go on

by Caleb Stento
caleb@ouraynews.com
With the outlook on our flammable conditions not improving, the Ouray County Sheriff’s Department and the Ouray Fire Department have officially cancelled the fireworks and flare parade portions of the July Fourth celebration in Ouray.
“This was not a easy decision for any of us, but I think it is the right decision considering what the rest of the state is going through,” Sheriff Mattivi said in an email to the Plaindealer.
In a last minute effort to provide a substitute form of entertainment, the Ouray Chamber Resort Association has procured a fantastic and well known musical act to perform a concert in Fellin Park that will be free to attend. Mike Gwinn and the North Folk Flyers will take the stage at 4:00 p.m. and play until 7:00 p.m.
