Our small office has planned a fund raiser thru the American Red Cross, for benefit of Haiti.  This Sat. evening 1/23 at La Veta Inn.  And our equally small regional Spanish Peaks Board of Realtors made the first pledge today, of $1,000.  And next pledge came from a competitor broker, for $100.  We are so appreciative and aware that every small step can produce worthy results.

la veta: Commissioners Vote NO on Wind Farm - 12/12/09 11:48 AM
Huerfano County Commissioners this week voted unanimously to DENY the application for the proposed Silver Mountain Wind Farm near La Veta, Colorado.  While initially receptive to the idea, a vocal number of activists pointed out that the location sits right in the middle of the Designated Scenic Corridor within view of home developments, foothills beauty and rock dike outcroppings.  Also in a major migratory game path. And to boot, it also violates our Master Development Plan.  While there was much acknowledgement of private property rights, it was nonetheless felt that the negative effects on wildlife, scenic views, and neighborhoods extended well beyond the rancher's deeded fenced … (1 comments)

la veta: Small Fires Contained - 05/01/08 12:58 AM
Monument Lake Park near Stonewall was evacuated for a short time Wednesday afternoon as winds pushed a 100 acre wildfire.  Two buildings were destroyed before the fire was contained. 
 Another small fire burning 30 miles west of La Veta is "mostly contained", in the Trinchera Ranch region of Costilla County.  Smoke lingers on the horizon from the Spring Creek Fire that still smolders this morning with gusty winds fueling embers.

la veta: Springtime Snow - 04/17/08 02:33 PM
We woke this morning to 10 inches of fresh wet snow in La Veta.  The Cuchara area reported over 15 inches.  Hopefully we are finally seeing the last snows of the season.  The snow pushed the elk back down in the meadow and it was beautiful.  By noon, the sun was bright and my horses were waiting for chow. Temperatures tomorrow in the mid-60's and Saturday reaching into the 70's.  Springtime in the Rockies.

We are so very lucky to have the championship Grandote Peaks Golf Course right here in La Veta.  This week the Golf Resort opened their new dining operation.  Our Bachman Real Estate Office enjoyed the first seating by holding our weekly sales meeting at the Club for breakfast.  Not just any breakfast, but a beautifully presented breakfast wonderfully prepared by none other than our local Sales Agent, Jim Vietti.  Following breakfast with Jim and Dave,  Kelly Popejoy gave us a tour of the new Grandote Homes under construction.  The two architect designed Medditeranean style homes were a big hit to all of us.  Then Thursday evening, … (0 comments)

Hi friends and neighbors, welcome to my new blog.  As a "newbie" I will ease into this by suggesting that if you have an interest in rural mountain lifetstyles of southern colorado, then this may be the blogsite for you.
