Autumn teaches us a valuable lesson. During summer, all the green trees are beautiful. But there is no time of the year when the trees are more beautiful than when they are different colors. Diversity adds beauty to our world.

JAKs Brewing Co. hosted a fundraiser for Liam Rom of Falcon that ran for several days and Super Bowl Sunday. Liam has nueroblastoma, a cancer that forms in the nerve cell of infants or children. JAKs held a silent auction, sold squares for the Super Bowl and offered $1 beers. Along with donations, they raised $7,500 for Liam. The funds will be used for medical expenses for Liam: the Rom family (from left to right) Ava, age 6, Marci, Larry and Liam.

Falcon Big R manager Caleb Perkins handed out raffle tickets for free heeling supplies and a bee colony. Bee colonies are available for pre-order now at $185.99. They are due to arrive May 17. Events like this are scheduled at Big R in Pueblo, Elizabeth and Canon City.
Timothy (11 months) and his mother, Lynnan Babbitt, traveled all the way from Stratton, Colorado, to attend the bee seminar.
Peyton family Claira, age 11, Lyza, age 10, and mom, Elisa Melas, attended the seminar to find out how bees can help improve health.
An extensive amount of earth moving has taken place over the last two months, north of Woodmen Road and southwest of Bent Grass Boulevard. The next phase of the Bent Grass subdivision will contain 181 new homes. Elizabeth Nijkamp, engineering manager for El Paso County Development Services, was asked why reshaping this landscape happened before the final permit for this development has been issued. She replied that all county developers can now request a “grading waver” permitting them to clear the land before receiving final approval. Photo by Kathy HareAt about 5 p.m. on a clear but cold day in late February, a family of of pronghorn hit the side of a moving vehicle. The animals were probably spooked by something that caused them to run at an extremely fast pace and hit a car. The doe died on impact, the buck had to be shot because of his injuries and the fawn was just stunned; he eventually got up and ran away, with no visible injuries. The driver stopped and called 911. The driver had no time to change course. These animals are losing more and more of their habitat so be cautious when driving. Photo by Sheryl Lambert
