Way to stand up
We would like to commend Remy Lovett for her “take some responsibility” letter that appeared in this newspaper on June 6. It was a mature, articulate and intelligent response to the “camping party” incident of the Battle Mountain High School graduates and the previous ridiculous letters written by others.
Her analysis of the incident and the actions of the Sheriff’s Office were well stated and showed exactly why she is the class of 2013 president.
She is a credit to her community and her parents, but most of all to herself and her convictions! We wish much future success to this well deserving Boettcher scholar.

Helpful school leaders
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Battle Mountain High School for the use of their auditorium on Friday, May 24.
Tobias Rene, a motivational speaker, came in from California to share his “Dig It” speech.
The principal and dean of students were very helpful in helping us set up the sound system and video. Special thanks to Ryan, the athletic director who allowed us to use the auditorium. We are grateful for people such as these three who are willing to help out when necessary. Also to all of you who donated and helped bring Rene to Colorado. Your support means so much to us.
Rene will be coming again on June 22 to perform live at the Lundgren Theatre in Gypsum.
Thanks, 4-H volunteers
The Gypsum Public Library and its patrons would like to give special thanks to the Sweetwater Bandits 4-H Club, its leader Mary Stevens, and the Stevens Nursery in Dotsero for donating their time and materials last Saturday in the restoration of our flower gardens in the front of the building.
They look beautiful! Thanks also to Jeff Kingston and Nathan Morhmann, of the town of Gypsum, for contributing your expertise to the project.
Manager, Gypsum Public Library
