What a week it has been. One thing certain about working for a newspaper— small or large—it is not often a boring proposition. And for as small a county as this is, this past week has been amazingly busy.
This Saturday, Rio Blanco’s two high schools are going to turn a bunch of teenagers into adults and turn them loose on the world. Chances are pretty good, I’d say, that the world will be a better place because of it.
My windows must be a bit fogged after last week’s column about the Meeker School District, but why on earth would one want to make their living in the agriculture field—as either a farmer or a rancher. Both of those seem like such a lot of hard work…
Happy Mother’s Day come Sunday. There are two groups of people in the world, but even more in our country that I don’t think you can say enough good about.
The saying goes regarding Colorado’s weather, “Wait around for five minutes, and the weather will change.” That was true 60 years ago, It is true today, only it isn’t only relative to weather. The last week seems to have been a study in change.
I was looking out my window and everything I looked at appeared scrambled. Then I looked again and realized that the window I looked at was filthy from the wind and rain storm last week and not only couldn’t I see out my windows at home, but the windows on my car were worse.
Looking out my window I saw a lot of pollution, a lot of red taillights and stoplights, a lot of concrete barriers, construction barriers, lots of police cars and heard an abundance of police sirens, ambulance sirens and fire truck sirens.

It kind of ruined my day when I saw the “For Sale” sign on Brothers Meat Processing in Meeker a couple of weeks ago. First of all, I hated to think that another business was going to leave Meeker, and I hated to possibly lose a store where I was at least a part-time customer. […]
Looking out my window this week offers me a cloudy picture of what is going on in our fair county and/or state.
My window was pretty clear regarding what is going on with the government agencies in and around Rio Blanco County after attending the Rio Blanco County Woolgrowers Association annual meeting on March 6 in Meeker.
Over the course of my career, I have written a lot of sports stories about a wide variety of athletic teams from junior high and high schools and for college and university teams as well as the Denver Broncos.
At the end of this week, I will have lived in Rio Blanco for two years exactly. It has been an interesting time, filled with challenges, boo-boos, successes, good news, bad news, good friends, some not-so-good friends, interesting news, depressing news, hot weather, cold weather and weather that is just right.
