Skipped issue

  • Visitors Kim and Mark Schultz. (We didn’t get their autographs, though.)

A heads-up: HCN staffers will be taking a much needed two-week publishing break after this issue to catch up on work and R&R. Look for your next issue on Oct. 11.

We’re always flattered by how many folks decide to stop by our Paonia office, but Kim and Mark Schultz of Colorado Springs positively made us blush in August when they nabbed a photo-op with our editors and an intern autograph or two. The longtime subscribers were reluctant to divulge any information about themselves, but we did glean that Mark teaches middle school social studies.

The Strenge family of Longmont, Colo., also dropped in. Mesa, 5, and Marina, 3, headed for our couch, happy to have a soft place to sit after storm-soaked camping in the mountains, while their parents, Ernst and Kim, toured the office. Ernst works for Boulder County Open Space and Kim is a nurse. HCN readers for a decade, the Strenges donate their back issues to the library and read friends’ copies between subscriptions. Documentarians Sharon Rubin (painter-photographer) and E.W. Kutner (writer) from Wickenberg, Ariz., co-founders of the Great Arizona Outback Rumor and Innuendo Historical Society based in La Paz County, generously gave us a copy of their new book, Images in America: McMullen Valley (Arcadia Publishing, 2009). The volume uses archival photographs and written descriptions to capture over a century of life in “a little-known refuge where the frontier has yet to close.”

Corrections
Our Aug. 16 story “Crude combat” incorrectly referred to a decision by the 9th District Court. In fact, the decision was made by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, which is part of the 9th Circuit. “Dear Friends” in that same issue misspelled author Stephen Lyons’ first name and incorrectly stated that his book followed the plight of Cedar City -- actually Cedar Rapids -- Iowa.

Also in that issue, Heard Around the West should have placed the photo of “Diesel Fried Chicken” in Texas, not Arizona. We regret the errors.
