My SnoTel Report

Published by under General Information

Another nice snow last night.  4 inches  here at my place in the Wahatoya Valley just south of town.  This usually translates to a little less in La Veta and maybe double our amount up in Cuchara.  We have now officially passed the 200 inch mark at Cuchara.  The 20 year aver. is 250″ up there so looks like we may make it again this year by the time the season is over.

Don Keairns Announces

Published by under General Information

Don Keairns (of Charlies Market)  has announced his intention to seek the office of Mayor of La Veta.  In a full page ad in The Signature, Don expressed his concerns and his vision.  Don states his belief  … that a vital function of Town Board is to promote  economic sustainability and development, the viability of doing business in La Veta being directly related to the viability of living in La Veta.    We can collectively take decisive action not in the direction of either extreme, but in the direction of sensible moderation.

La Veta Trustee Responds

Published by under General Information

Last week our good friend Trustee Tracy Webb, posted quite a list of actions and achievements of the Town Board in recent years.  It was compelling to realize how active and busy the volunteer Town Board has been.  This week our friend Sandy White has likewise posted a commentary regarding Town actions.  But he points out  there is a significant difference between reactive Town  decisions versus pro-active Town Board leadership. 

Mr. White  emphasizes what many locals have been trying to express.  Namely the responsibility of the Town Board to promote the overall prosperity, trade and economic health necessary to maintain a balanced and stable economy.   That leadership in action has been lacking.
