Almost lost in the hub bub of metro business at the latest meeting of the board of directors, held Tuesday evening, April 9, 2019, at district offices was an announcement by board chair Terry Kraus that Paragon, a firm that processes non-THC hemp (THC is the psychoactive ingredient in medical and recreational marijuana), may hire as many as 150 new employees at build out. The web page for Paragon,, lists 31 job openings near Colorado City as of April 9, 2019.

The majority of the meeting was taken up with operational reports, and discussions related to those reports, beginning with Parks and Recreation. Softball has 50 participants while youth baseball sign-ups continue. The department looks to accomplish a restroom remodel and to locate video cameras on the property to deter a recent uptick in vandalism.

HolyDot has 24 new members for a total of 60 thus far, compared to 51 members at this time last year. 50 tournaments are already scheduled starting in the spring. Financially, the golf course is approximately $7,000 ahead in revenue compared to this time last year. District Manager Jim Echer believes that fifty tons of sand will be required to service bunkers over the next year. Friends of HolyDot, a volunteer organization that focuses on improving the course has volunteered to cover half the cost of acquiring the needed sand. The course has sustained minimal damage from elk while the geese seem to have migrated to South Park.
