From the Pages of the Paper- June 11, 1999

Greenhorn Valley View- June 11, 1999- Black and White- 16 Pages- 50 Cents per Copy

A runaway dump truck blasted through the intersection of Boulder and Main Streets in Rye at over 60 miles per hour. The driver of the truck was apparently distressed after losing full use of his brakes and turned on to Boulder from being Southbound on Hwy 165. The speeding truck forced several drivers on Boulder to the shoulder. Other vehicles heading west on Main luckily noticed the truck not slowing down and stopped to avoid a collision. The dump truck continued down Boulder, gradually slowing to a stop.

Despite high winds, the first annual Huck Finn Days was a big success. Youngsters clad in Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher costumes competed in fishing events with authentic stick poles only. VFW Post 7305 and the Ladies Auxiliary selected the winners. Best Huck costume went to Christopher Lewis, Best Becky costume was Chelsea Frantz. Raven Langosh won a prize for the first fish caught, Tawnynara Inman caught the largest fish, Cori Allamon caught the smallest fish and Jaimie Clark won the most fish caught award.

Jean Kenney was scheduled to do a workshop at the Colorado City Community Center for the SRDA program. Her presentation on how she raises her own sheep, shears them, cleans & cards the wool, spins it & then uses it for many projects promised to be fascinating.

Bob Flinn was presented with the International Presidentís Certificate of Appreciation by International Director Burrell Harden at the Colorado Multiple District Convention in Colorado Springs. He was honored for his work and dedication for getting an information booth set up and manned for the Lions Clubs during the 1998 Colorado State Fair.
