THANK YOU—A catastrophe was averted this week, thanks to the quick action of employees from the Country Market, Alpine Property Management and Buck’s T4.

The Miners of the week are kindergarten teachers (L to R) Ms. Rose (Savannah Horwood), Ms. Mac (Kass McCarthy) and Ms. Gretchen (Goodman). These three ladies work hard to create a team approach in educating our youngest students in school.

Choose your own adventure

The mere thought of hiking the rocky, narrow Headwaters ridge and skiing one of the many super-steep runs off it strikes fear into some hearts. But for others, like the young skiers and snowboarders at this weekend’s annual Headwaters Spring Runoff junior regional competition, the ridge is an ideal competitive playground.

Japanese rustic
