A helicopter operated by R&R Connor Aviation moves Douglas fir trees Saturday that were cut from Howelsen Hill. More than 90 of the trees were removed from near the ski jump complex as a result of a Colorado State Forest Service study that indicated many of the trees were infested by Douglas fir beetles. A helicopter was used to move the trees to the base area to minimize damage to the trails. Photo by Matt Stensland

Bud Rogers and Brian Edwards paint the bell tower at a volunteer workday held last month by Historic Routt County at the Foidel Canyon Schoolhouse on Twentymile Road. More than 25 volunteers worked hard on the historic schoolhouse to further its restoration and enjoyed a BBQ provided by Peabody-Twentymile Coal LLC, who owns the property. Historic Routt County thanks all the volunters, H. E. Rogers Construction, Peabody Energy and the Historical Society of Oak Creek and Phippsburg for a great day. Historic Routt County actively is raising funds for continued progress on the project. If you are interested, please contact HRC at 970-875-1305. Submitted by: Meg Tully
