Celtic Festival

I got up early this morning to complete prep. for our Pre-Festival Party to welcome the International Celtic entertainers to La Veta.  We are hosting a private party Wed. night for the musicians, the major Donors and other dignataries.  We expect about 40 plus folks and it usually turns into a lively Ceilidh  (jam-session) before the evening is out. 

The first night of their performances will be Thursday in Gardner. Then moving over to La Veta and Walsenburg with lively workshops each day throughout the weekend.

Tower Trouble

Published by under Local News Affairs

Nearly 50 residents turned out last week to protest the proposed 180 ft. cell phone tower application.  It is primarily the “location” of the proposed tower due to its dominant height near the Town Lakes.  That area is within the designated Scenic Conservation Corridor.    While some question the need for improved cell phone service, others are in favor of an alternative site and method, namely the flat panel antennas proposed to be attached to the Town water tanks.

The two options may also pit the County against the Town, as both are set to vote on their respective proposals this month.
