On the opening day of the second quarter, 30 exhibitors, 200 registered guests and more non-registered guests braved the return of winter to attend the 2017 Business and Wellness EXPO held at Craver Middle School and sponsored by the Greenhorn Valley Chamber of Commerce. The four-hour event featured local entertainment, lots of door prizes and Pueblo County first responders giving everyone something to see and do on a wintery Saturday, April 1st.

News of the first quarter storms continued to affect the Greenhorn Valley. The Colorado City Metro District, Rye Fire Protection District, and Pueblo County opened Mountain Shadows Gravel Pit to accept organics such as tree branches, limbs, and other biodegradable waste due to the heavy wind storms that at one point saw 5,000 customers of San Isabel Electric without power. There was no charge to move the debris to the gravel pit.

The Rye Fire Protection District Board of Directors gave approval to contact RFPD attorney, Pat Garcia, and explore a change in the company collecting emergency medical service fees at their April 17 regular board meeting. An all time low collection rate of 27% was partially responsible for the decision along with an increased number of coding areas and a decreasing lack of responsiveness. The current collection for the year stood at $37,633.
