So long, farewell

Dear Editor:What a wonderful time! You know, it was hard to leave the Aspen area, but with assets in mind, I have to do what I have to do. And that would be returning to the south to complete my muscle car interests; the restoration of my 1972 Dodge Challenger Rallye.But what is most important is the friends I have made and those same friends I had to leave behind to pursue my dreams. Cheers and thanks to Greg Lipp (the artist), Ryan Shorney (the photographer), Mike Klein (the engineering fisherman) and Jesse Lee (the Frisbee golf pro). These men not only helped me through some difficult times, they cared and showed support beyond the call of duty. They showed me ways of life that have positively affected me for years to come. It is people like these gentlemen who go out of there way for simply no reason.Now that I have “The Secret to Life,” (being positive no matter what comes your way) I can move on and stay focused. Thanks a million, guys, I will see you in the near future when I return to Aspen to increase my assets. I cherish your friendship beyond the realms of reality.Your friend for life! Thank you so much! Cheers!William ColwellSnowmass Village

Colorado announces temporary tax break for bars and restaurants


Gov. Jared Polis announced Wednesday that via executive order he has suspended collection of the 2.9% sales tax that businesses must typically return to the government. That means businesses affected by the executive order — bars, restaurants and food trucks — can hang onto an extra $2.90 per $100 in revenue.
