Thanks for permitting memorial at the rodeo grounds

Editor:

We would like to thank Bob Benefiel, Dave Marshall and the PRCA family for allowing us to bring our brother/father, David Miles, back to his roots in rodeo when we held a memorial at the Evergreen rodeo arena this past weekend.

David got his start in this very arena 45 years ago starting at mutton bustin’/little britches, then finishing as a bull rider.

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

Quick response to fire showed professionalism of responders

Editor:

On Friday, June 4, there was a fire at the edge of Jefferson County where it borders Clear Creek County. The fire was between 3 and 8 p.m. The fire was spotted and overseen by members of the sheriff’s department, Foothills Fire, Evergreen Fire and Clear Creek Fire.

The concern and professionalism of all involved were exemplary. I know because the fire was being spotted from our deck, and I had the opportunity to listen to the calls that came in.

I wondered if it was going to be on the news in the evening. The reason it was not on the news was the reason everyone would wish: quick response to the fire.

It was in difficult terrain, but it was brought under control before it became a full conflagration. Anyone who has ever fought a fire knows that quick response is an absolute necessity. We didn’t get slurry bombers on this because we didn’t have to. Everyone was ready and functioned as a unit.

We would like to tell everybody that it was a pleasure to see our teams and our tax dollars work in such a positive way.

Evergreen kids displayed good manners at Rodeo Parade

Editor:

I walked in the Rodeo Parade for the first time this year and discovered something else to love about Evergreen: We have the most polite children in the world. Every child — and I do mean every — said “thank you” to the token I placed in his or her hand or bag. It was heartwarming and encouraging.

Parents, thank you! You’re doing a great job!
