SOUTHWESTERN COLORADO

In order to cut costs, the U.S. Postal Service is looking into making some major changes to post offices in the southwestern corner of the state. Colorado post offices in danger of closing include Yellow Jacket and Egnar as well as the sole post office in Mesa Verde National Park. It could take up to nine months for the Postal Service to make a decision and a 60-day public comment period is now open. At the end of that period, a decision will be made on the Mesa Verde National Park Post Office. The Postal Service is also considering moving mail-processing operations from Durango to Albuquerque, a move that could save nearly $500,000.

Sterling

The Northeastern Junior College presidential search committee has sent Dr. Nancy McCallin, president of the Colorado Community College System (CCCS), four finalists for her examination for the presidency. Dr. McCallin, along with the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, will make the final presidential selection. The search committee consists of student, faculty, administrative and community members. Scott Stump, Dean of Career and Technical Education for the Colorado Community College System, has been serving as interim president since September 2011. The four finalists are Mr. Jay A. Lee, J.D., currently Vice President for Instruction at North Idaho College in Coeur d’ Alene, ID; Dr. Donald Pearl, formerly Vice President of Instruction/Chief Academic Officer at Central Arizona College in Coolidge, AZ; Dr. Randy L. Smith, currently President of Rural Community College Alliance in Olustee, OK; Dr. Mark Van Den Hende, formerly Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty at Waycross College in Waycross, GA. The finalists full resumes can be viewed on the Northeastern Junior College website at njc.edu. A final decision regarding the presidency is expected to occur prior to the end of January.

Manitou Springs

Manitou Springs just keeps moving forward. The renovations started in the early millennium will come to a close in 2012. Some improvements that will be seen in the quaint mountain town include improvements to the streetscape, medians and the entrance to Soda Springs Park, bridge upgrades to the historic Park and Cañon bridges and new footpaths and bridges, sidewalks and crosswalks to improve walking safety, especially for local children. The city tax to pay for the renovations has far exceeded the needs of the project, leaving the city with funds that could be allocated to different sectors like parking or improvements to the police force.
