It seems appropriate to write about snow removal this first week of the meteorological winter. We certainly have experienced snow this last week, and I thank everyone for their patience. Snow events are never the same. We adjust differently to each one depending on how wet or dry the snow is, if there is ice underneath the snow, what time of day it is snowing, and even how long we anticipate the snow will continue. All of these factors make a difference.

I was surprised to read, in Elise Backinger’s November 21 letter to the Mountain Mail, that there are no theater or drama classes offered at Salida High School.

It’s almost embarrassing.
Salida High School has band class, chorus class, and art class. But no [...]
A Wish Tree to benefit shelter dogs is up at both locations of Gone to the Dogs. The holiday trees are decorated with photo ornaments of the current resident dogs at Ark Valley Humane Society.

Besides the obvious, food, shelter, water, family, and friends…I am also extremely grateful for COMMUNITY. It has now officially been 2 1/2 years that the Salida R-32-J District took a giant leap. This community, as well as every other community in Colorado, was up against enormous budgetary constraints, due to consistent lack of funding from the State of Colorado’s educational funding system.
