Seasonal Reflections

Dear Beloved EarthLinks Community, I have been thinking a lot about seasons lately – how some of us get excited with the change in seasons and some of us wish it was summer or winter or fall or spring all of the time.  Despite our best efforts to extend some seasons and to avoid others, seasons still change according to Earth’s cycle.  I wanted to let you know that my season at EarthLinks is coming to a close at the end of this month.  This was one of the hardest decisions I have had to make.  The driving factors in my final decision were care for my (newly expanded) family and...

Sam’s Story

Sam’s Story

Sam was a carpenter for thirty years. It was all he knew but he could not do it forever. He suffered from carpal tunnel in his left hand so bad that he would wake up with his fingers wrapped tight in a fist, as if still holding his hammer. His knees were getting worn out too. And then he broke his back. Sam who had been a carpenter for thirty years, could no longer do it. Sam had difficulties finding another job he qualified for or that his overworked body could stand to carry out. One thing led to another and Sam became homeless. But after several years of living out of a van, Sam’s...

Descendant of original Sun Valley residents

Photo estimated date: 1929 I visit EarthLinks a lot, but many times during off-hours.  My grandfather built the small structure that now houses your administrative offices.  That little structure, built around 1912 in the poorer section of the very modest Jewish neighborhood around the old West Colfax Avenue, was home to my grandparents and their eight kids.  This neighborhood was settled by Jewish immigrants, like my grandparents, who were mostly from what was known as the Pale of Settlement where Jews were forced to live during the time of Czarist Russia, and who had come to America to...

Let’s see how far our EarthLinks’ bees will make it! Bees are so important to our environment and food supply. We take pride in the bee hives we care for in our Peace Garden and without our little friends, we wouldn’t be able to grow the incredible flowers, herbs, and food that we provide for our community. Unfortunately over the years bee populations have been dwindling due to habitat loss and pesticide use. In the span of just seven years, the United States saw an approximate average rate of 1.6 million bees die off each year, totalling ten million bees. We need your help to...

Just Like any Other Day

I’m Charles. I was 19 and fresh outta high school when I married my high school sweetheart. We were from a rural town called Middletown in Minnesota. After saving up for a couple of years, we moved to Ft. Collins, Colorado. She wanted to attend Colorado State University for pre-med and I wanted to be by her. It didn’t take long for us to fall in love with Colorado. The views of the Rockies were beautiful and the weather was perfect. I found work at a lumber yard, and we both had demanding schedules so it was really hard to make time for each other. As hectic as our lives were, we couldn’t...
