SNOW EXPRESS GETS ROLLING FOR MS
STEAMBOAT SPRINGSJimmie Heuga Snow Express for MS is today at Mount Werner. Raising a minimum of $1,000, teams will race for the best time to benefit The Heuga Center. The Heuga Center is a nonprofit, research organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with multiple sclerosis through medical wellness programs and research. At 15 years old, Jimmie Heuga was the youngest male ever named to the U.S. Olympic Ski Training Squad. In 1964, he won the bronze medal in one of the first Olympic medals for men's alpine skiing.
In 1970, Heuga was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and lived a sedentary life for the next six years. But through a rigorous exercise regime and self-motivation, Heuga got back on his feet to create The Heuga Center in Vail in 1984.

SCULPTURE SHOW COMES TO GALLERY
STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe Wild Horse Gallery is hosting a one-man show, "Journeys of the Imagination," featuring the sculptures of Gary Price March 9-25.
Much of Price's work captures the joy and innocence of childhood. His versatility as a sculptor can be seen in his pieces that often depict Native Americans and animals. One of his more popular pieces, "Messenger," shows an angel with outstretched hands, bringing light, comfort or "whatever it is that you personally need to carry with you on this earthly journey," Price said.
The gallery has shown Price's works since December 1998, and you also can find his larger sculptures at the Steamboat Springs Botanic Park and outside Off The Beaten Path Bookstore. Price will attend the opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. The gallery is located inside the Sheraton Hotel.
