Kremmling " Mother Nature tosses a wet towel on summer break

Sometimes I have to question nature’s sense of timing. School let out for the summer last Thursday and it has been raining since last Friday. I am not complaining, just wondering how that works.

As another successful year comes to a close, so does the career of a wonderful music teacher. Mrs. Yost is retiring as the music teacher at West Grand Middle and High School. My son was fortunate enough to have been her student, and from what I have heard from him and other students , she is the kind of teacher who not only leaves a lasting impression on her students, but she has passed on a skill that can have a positive influence for a lifetime.

I don’t think there is a greater compliment for a teacher than the sadness expressed by her students at her leaving while proclaiming her to be the greatest music teacher ever. As a parent I can only say thank you, and I really mean it. Even when I hear the trumpet of a former seventh grader in the early a.m.

To follow up on last week’s article, I wanted to pass on some information a reader and Grand County resident was kind enough to take the time to send to me. The Web site http://www.LetsSayThanks.com will let you send postcards with your personal message to those serving overseas. The Web site http://www.anySoldier.com will allow you to “adopt” a service person. There are similar sites for each branch of the military.

There was always the question of whether the WW II would be the last great generation to serve our nation as soldiers, or would future generations be up to the task. I think those future generations have answered that question with a resounding yes and have shown the willingness to protect our nation with an effort that deserves our support and gratitude. Don’t forget to look for the Baking G.A.L.S posters around town and help if you can.

There is one organization that always reminds me of greater Grand County and that is the Pet Pals. Jill Childress, a Winter Park realtor, has designated Pet Pals as the beneficiary of her annual garage sale that is taking place on June 27 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. You can support them by donating items for the sale or shopping at the sale. If you would like directions, e-mail me and I will be glad to share them with you. If you need help with a donation, contact Pat ay 722-7680.

Kremmling Days takes place this month from the 19th through the 21st. One of the big events is the Kremmling Classic Trail Run on the 20th. The Kremmling Chamber’s Web site has information about registration.

This upcoming weekend will be the 6th annual Open Water Fishing Contest at Wolford Mountain Reservoir. The Chamber’s Web site has all the info you need for this event as well.

” Please continue to send me items of local interest to Amentalingeer@cs.com or P.O Box 564, Kremmling, CO 80459.
