Una promesa es “una promesa”

Aug 23, 2021

La resistencia, las agallas y la obstinada determinación nos definen. Ganarse la vida en el remoto oeste de Colorado nunca ha sido fácil ni está garantizado. Aunque tenemos la suerte y el privilegio de vivir aquí, hace falta un auténtico amor por el lugar para soportar las dificultades comunes a nuestra región–escasez de viviendas asequibles, grandes interrupciones del transporte, incendios, inundaciones, ventiscas, sequías y ahora un virus.

El trabajo duro nivela el campo de juego

Jun 9, 2021
