    Hentschel boys finally coming home

    Last Monday, Lindsay and Hadley Hentschel were elated to receive the phone call they’ve been waiting 3 ½ years to receive: their adopted sons finally will be allowed to leave Haiti and come live with them in Carbondale. Mykerson (6) and Leander (4) have lived in the same orphanage in Haiti for most of their lives. The Hentschels committed to adopting Mykerson in August of 2010. When they travelled to Haiti to meet him for the first time in December of 2010, they also met Leander, another boy in the orphanage. The Hentschels originally hoped to adopt two boys and it seemed to them that Leander was meant to be a part of their family. By January of 2011 they had officially added Leander to their adoption paperwork. read more →

    Clear the Air; Drive Smart, Drive Less

    In 1964 a thick haze covered the Los Angeles area for six days straight. The smog was a result of pollutants such as car exhaust and factory emissions reacting with strong sunlight. This chemical reaction creates ground level ozone, the principle component of smog, which reduces visibility to a few miles, and causes physical reactions like burning lungs, itchy watery eyes, and severe respiratory problems. Children, the elderly and those with asthma or heart ailments are most at risk. read more →

    Fashions vary but the tribe stays pure

    With the CCAH fashion show on the horizon, those of us at The Sopris Sun thought Carbondale’s sense of everyday fashion was worth a closer look. We are already keenly aware of the cultural mix that fills our nest of a town, but do the social, professional, political, and age spectrums somehow lose their delineations with how we present ourselves? Perhaps we can attribute the looming Mount Sopris, which has come to represent us, with lending a sense of personal power to the very air we breathe. read more →
