“Gar’ needs help

Support Local Journalism

Friends and family of Garfield “Gar” Brown hope you can help the popular, longtime local recover from a motorcycle accident that happened Friday. He’s in intensive care at Yampa Valley Hospital up in Steamboat Springs. Although he’s expected to fully recover, Gar’s looking at a lengthy period of recuperation due to multiple injuries. If anything, he’s sure to miss a bunch of work, too.

Anybody wanting to help Gar can make contributions to The Gar Brown Benefit Fund, WestStar Bank, PO Box 3219, Avon CO, 81620. You can drop off a contribution at any WestStar Bank.

Cards may be sent to Yampa Valley Hospital, 1624 Central Park Dr., Steamboat Springs, CO, 80487.

Your joke du jour

A character actor confided to a pal, “I’m almost 65 years old, have saved

a million and have fallen madly in love with a dashing young blonde of 19.

Do you think I’d have a better chance of marrying her if I told her I’m only 50?”

“I think you’d have a better chance to land her,” said the pal frankly, “if you told her you’re 80!”
