Deadly Water

Golden Fire Department Rescue - Golden Colorado

This photo comes courtesy of the Golden Fire Department. Yesterday, while trying to pull a car out of Clear Creek, they discovered a body. Take this as a reminder to BE CAREFUL NEAR THE CREEK. The Creek is closed to tubers and rafters. Kayakers with the specified safety equipment are still permitted in the Creek. Learn more about the restrictions. See a Fox News report about the Fire Department’s retrieval yesterday.

The County is looking for Volunteers to serve on boards and commissions. Want to advise on Open Space? The Library? Housing, Mental Health, the Fairgrounds, Sustainability…lots of other options. See the range of possibilities and submit an application on the County’s website.

Do you know any high school student(s) who might be interested in leadership? Consider inviting them to apply for this program to learn more about leadership in the world around us.
