Spotlight: Colorado’s original inhabitants

PARA ESPAÑOL, HAGA CLIC AQUÍ. Silverthorne is a relatively young town, but it’s been populated for thousands of years. The area now known as Silverthorne, and Summit County, was the stomping grounds of the Ute people, who dwelled here until white settlement pushed them from their tribal lands. The Ute People arrived around 4,800 B.C. and occupied a vast territory that included much of what is now considered Utah, Colorado and northern New Mexico.  The Ute People came to this region by way of what we now call Vail Pass, …

Solidarity talk in Silverthorne

Summit County Voices Come Together at Solidarity Talks

PARA ESPAÑOL, HAGA CLIC AQUÍ. As far as local business owner Alexandria Carns sees it, talk is far from cheap when it means coming together as a diverse community and sharing perspectives.  In early June 2020, Carns became inspired to start Solidarity Nation after attending a Solidarity March in Breckenridge.  “When I walked with hundreds of people to stand together in solidarity, I felt honored and acknowledged,” Carns said. “It healed something in me that I didn’t realize needed healing.” That moment ignited a passion within Carns to create an organization that …

Then, last September, Steve got off of the couch. He got on his …
