    While the 2010 general election day is still almost four weeks away, Colorado citizens will begin voting very soon. Mail ballots, which have become the preferred method of voting for election officials and increasing numbers of people, will go out next week. After that, early voting stations will open.

    Thanks for help with weed pull
    Editor:
    The Community Weed Awareness Campaign would like to thank all of the hard-working volunteers who made “Wake-Up and Weed” such a success. Volunteers who are willing to spend a lovely Saturday morning pulling weeds are truly special. We’d like to acknowledge the large contingent of volunteers from Wild Rose Church and the support of the Evergreen Nature Center.
