It is a privilege to bring Falcon and the surrounding communities in El Paso County a continuous stream of timely, relevant news. Since The New Falcon Herald began publishing in 2004, our community has witnessed growth, challenges and progress.Examples of growth are featured in this issue, with an article written by Paula Jones about a new gold-purchasing business, Front Range Gold. Also, Kathleen Wallace covers the Peyton Fire District and its possible growth related to a federal grant.Challenges often come with growth. JoAnn McNabb and Natalie Gowen report about strife within the Woodmen Hills Metropolitan District.Through the growth and challenges, there has been much progress in the Falcon area. As a link to the west, Woodmen Road has progressed from a two-lane road to a four-lane expressway. The Woodmen Road Expressway project is complete from Highway 24 to Powers Boulevard. The roadway now also boasts a few extra amenities. Natalie writes about the grand opening ceremony.The NFH has also grown. We hope this growth will benefit all of our readers.
