Thanks from CMC

Dear Editor:

The Office of Student Affairs at Colorado Mountain College would like to thank local foundations, sponsors and volunteers who helped make the Latino Youth Summit 2010, hosted in May at the Spring Valley Center, a wonderful experience for 150 students from the following high schools: Aspen, Roaring Fork, Basalt, Glenwood Springs, Yampah Mountain, Bridges, and Colorado Rocky Mountain School.

The morning workshops were dedicated to prevention and awareness, enabling students to make healthy choices in their lives. The afternoon brought together area entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals, students and nonprofit agencies in roundtable discussions to interact and share ideas to find solutions to local and common problems.

Thank you to all of our workshop presenters, student leaders, business owners and committee members who dedicated their time to inform and empower students. This event would not have been possible without the generosity of the Aspen Community Foundation, city of Glenwood Springs, Robert Young Foundation, Colorado Mountain College, Aspen High School, Roaring Fork High School and Colorado Rocky Mountain School.

Mariana Velasquez-Schmahl

Youth Outreach coordinator, Colorado Mountain College

Colorado River connectivity channel gets go-ahead after environmental assessment

Ten years after plans for a diversion route for the Colorado River around Windy Gap Reservoir outside of Granby was finalized, the project is a go. A consortium of state and commercial water entities announced Monday that in late June or early July, construction crews will begin excavating dirt from land adjacent to U.S. Highway 40, to fill in part of the existing reservoir and dredge a new path for the Colorado River to flow around it.
