On Feb. 8, we were awakened by a noise coming from our basement. It sounded like someone trying to break into our ground-level bedroom window. I went downstairs to check it out, left the lights off, and could still hear someone/something thumping on the window. I shined my flashlight on the window expecting to see some drunk trying to get into our house. The bull elk was staring at me and was not startled. He was using his nose to move 6- to 8-inch, snow entrenched, cobble landscaping stones so he could eat, still green, chick and hen plants. Moving the stones made him bang his antlers on the window. The pictures came out too dark to see so I used an editing program to enhance the brightness. He reluctantly moved on but left plenty of droppings, which we found Thursday, minus almost all of the chicks and hens. Based on the droppings he enjoyed the meal. Submitted by: John Watts

The Satkiewicz Relays were a big hit Thursday night at the Old Town Hot Springs. Twenty-seven swimmers on nine teams participated in the hourlong swim in the lap pool. The winning team was: Essi Malacinski, Brad Piske, Shafer Henry and Scott Weir. Nearly $500 was raised for the Wayne Kakela Scholarship Fund, which helps support needy families and youth in Routt County with various programs at the Old Town Hot Springs, such as swim lessons. Mark Satkiewicz, the president of SmartWool, is the one who came up with the idea of the relays. Submitted by: Shannon Lukens
