  • Gillen juggles family life with rodeo

    It’s Father’s Day, and it’s everything that 43-year-old Brian Gillen could ask for.

Though the end result isn’t what any rider hopes for, the sheer excitement of the competition is well worth it, Gillen said.

    One of the most beautiful flowers in June is golden banner. It is in full bloom in my yard, but it starts blooming as early as April and May on the high plains. There are large yellow patches of golden banner now blooming throughout the foothills.

  • Carving a niche for art

    Sherrill Stone was nervous.

    The Carbondale sculptor looked away as her half-ton Italian marble sculpture was tied up and moved via crane from the bed of her pickup to its new location in Kittredge Community Park.

    “I hate to watch this part,” she said.
