March 26, 2008
John “Cowboy” Adams, a Kremmling trustee candidate in the April 1 municipal election, was injured in a riding accident Monday and is now in a Denver hospital.
Adams, 67, reportedly broke his pelvis and sustained other fractures after being thrown from a horse late Monday afternoon. He was initially transported to Kremmling Memorial Hospital and later taken to Denver General Hospital, where he is scheduled to undergo surgery.
At Tuesday’s “Meet the Candidates” forum at West Grand PK-8 School, a message from Adams stated that he plans to continue his candidacy to seek a four-year term as a Kremmling trustee.
Adams has lived in the Kremmling area for 34 years and within the town limits for the past 5-1/2 years. Retired for two years, he worked as a mill hand at the Henderson Mill for 28-1/2 years. He has also been a local horseshoer for the past 30 years. He is married and three of his children and four of his five grandchildren have graduated from West Grand High School.
