Winds of change blowing in excitement
Here in my window seat at the Fruita Times I watch the wind blow all kinds of things around downtown. People, who likely combed and fixed their hair before going outside, found it didn’t matter. From sneezes and coughs — it’s evident that humans who suffer from allergies are having a tough time with the wind swirling everything around.
I also see occasional smoke from ditch-burning and I do hope people are careful and don’t even think of burning if wind is in the forecast. The Lower Valley fire volunteers are waiting to do their jobs, but it would be safer for all of us if they didn’t have to.
The winds of change blew through City Hall just around the corner. The hot air needs changing from time to time. Lori Buck was elected mayor to replace Ken Henry, who finished two terms as hizzoner. Herroner just doesn’t have the same zing to it so I will ponder appropriate names in between naps.
I may amble down to the Fruita Community Center late afternoon on April 12 and check out the chamber’s Business Expo. It’s open to everyone, and it’s free.
Chuck Pearson, who takes the wonderful photos you see in the paper, is nice enough to give me a ride now and then to watch our local kids play high school sports. They’re pretty darn good so if you haven’t done it yet, try to catch a baseball game, or lacrosse, or soccer or even golf. There are a few weeks of school left in this calendar year so get outside and catch the action.
