Custer County Community Group. This is often a great way to find out what is happening in the area from power outages to  recommendations on who can fix your washing machine or build your house locally.

Is anyone interested in some kale? I thinned my garden out and don't want this all to go to waste. There is about twice as much as what is shown. All organic, non gmo. Free to good home and happy belly :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Got a call from a neighbor that there is a man, with an outstanding warrant evading the sheriff and was spotted in the triangle of Shy Circle and Geronimo in Bull Domingo. We verified with Custer County Sheriff. He is carrying a knife. He is wearing a white tank t-shirt and blue jeans. Approximately 6 feet tall. He must be roaming our woods. All I know. ...

The culvert on Oak Creek grade which is at the junction of the road leading to my house and several others is totally covered on the top end, and consequently there is an ever-enlarging gully there. Whom would I call about getting that culvert restored? TIA. ... See MoreSee Less

How many of us have enjoyed soups, coffees, desserts & ice creams at Sangre Coffee & Home Decor in downtown Westcliffe? I couldn't believe what I found this week: their chef Abi Schneider is sharing her secrets with us all in a new cookbook. Everything from soups to nuts (forgive me the phrase, but it's true!) with her beautiful outdoor photos, tips & pics of her tantalizing goodies. Lots of fun to thumb through to make plans for dinner or the next holiday, or pause for a moment to read her food for thought. Isn't this cool? ... See MoreSee Less

Hillside Colorado is a newer, remodeled lodging opportunity and small town just a short drive from downtown Westcliffe. This is a great, affordable option if you have plans to travel to Salida, Buena Vista, Monarch or anywhere west of the valley. They also have kitchens in the rooms, so that you are able to cook a few of your own meals.
