Letter: A unified voice

When Bob and Tee Child bought their ranch on Capitol Creek in 1961, they moved from Denver with six kids to a new life in a remote valley. The ranch’s owners, the three Arbaney brothers, whose family had emigrated from Aosta, Italy, willingly taught the Childs the skills necessary to run a working cattle ranch: fencing, irrigating, milking a cow and how to be good stewards of the land. Their cheerful mentoring shortened and simplified a learning process that could have taken many more years of trial and error.

One of the many benefits of neighborhood caucuses is the role of passing the torch to the next caretakers of the land. The Snowmass-Capitol Creek Caucus, in its 42-year history, has shared knowledge, experiences and friendships. We have joined the talents and resources of part-time and full-time residents alike to find solutions to challenges that have arisen.

It is my sincere hope that residents of Snowmass and Capitol creeks will continue working together as one unified voice to guide the future of these two wonderful valleys.
