Growth – itís been a common thread running through recent issues of The New Falcon Herald and this issue is no different. The community is growing by leaps and bounds. In this issue, Kathleen Wallace reports on the groundbreaking for the Woodmen Road expansion. She also informs us on plans for harnessing wind power on the plains to help support the energy needs of a growing community.Alicia Littlejohn reports on Pikes Peak Community Collegeís plans to offer college classes starting in August out of the old Falcon Middle School building. Advanced educational opportunities for the Falcon community can only be a positive change.Another positive change – Falcon is finally getting a new library, thanks in part to Farmers State Bank who generously donated the land for the building. Fleur Bradley reports on the first of Pikes Peak Library Districtís public meetings to explore the needs of Falcon residents.You may have noticed that we have been adding new writers to our team. Fleur Bradley has lived in Falcon for three years and comes to us with a background as a fiction writer as well as a freelance writer for a retirement newspaper. She also has held job positions in banking and finance. She is married with two young daughters. In her spare time, she loves to garden and do home improvement projects around her Falcon home. Fleur is now covering new development for us and whatever else we can throw at her. New development is keeping her hopping.Judi Tobias also has joined our staff recently. Judi retired early from civil service in the 1990ís and lives with her husband in Latigo Trails. She wrote book reviews for the Colorado Springs Sun when it was still in existence and has written for Western Horseman Magazine. She is also an avid horsewoman. Her children are grown and no longer live at home, but Judi still enjoys attending high school sporting events. She is covering D 49 sports for The NFH.We are looking forward to more new reporters coming on board within the upcoming months.As a growing community, we also want to thank Kathy Hare who has recently completed her term as president of the Upper Black Squirrel Creek Groundwater Management District. Kathy has spent the last five years on the UBS board and has worked tirelessly in her efforts to address the need for adequate water supplies for the inevitable growth in the area. Even though Kathy has given UBS 100 percent, she also continued to write for The NFH on a consistent basis, and we are thankful for her contributions.On a different note, for those of you who are advertisers, past or present, stay tuned for a special event we are planning just for you next month.– Deb, Michelle and the NFH team
