In praise of Creede's Pam Houston
Posted: March 15, 2013

It was almost 20 years ago, long before I moved to Southwest Colorado, that I became familiar with the writing of Pam Houston, a part-time Creede resident who directs the creative writing program at the University of California at Davis. Like a lot of other people, I became enamored of her work through her first book, the best-seller "Cowboys Are My Weakness," and have remained a fan since that time.

 I recently returned from a road trip to Santa Fe, where I lived from 2001 to 2008, to visit some friends. Northern New Mexico is probably my favorite place on earth, and a drive along U.S. 285 through that country is always a pleasure for me.

A bright future awaits photographer Sarah Hall
Posted: December 21, 2012

 Daily Press readers who are fans of our local high school sports teams no doubt are familiar with the work of Sarah Hall, a 2012 graduate of Montrose High School who supplied us with dozens of sports photographs over the fall. Sarah will be leaving Montrose soon to begin college in Idaho, but I wanted to recognize for all the hard work she did on behalf of this newspaper — and to advise our readers to be on the lookout for her work in the future, wherever that might be.

With political season in full swing, both the front page and letters to the editor section of the Montrose Daily Press are filled with discussions of issues both local and national. One campaign that covers both is the race for Colorado's 3rd District U.S. House seat featuring incumbent Republican Scott Tipton and Democratic challenger Sal Pace, currently the minority leader in the state House.
