CONTROVERSIAL UTE THEATRE OPENS IN RIFLE
Despite the many shenanigans the Rifle City Council pulls to rennovate the old movie theatre, the first event with the classic American cowboy quartet Riders in the Sky was pulled off on Friday, July 18.
In fact the sold-out show started five minutes early. General admission tickets for $25 were sold through City Markets, the event was produced by Sandstone Concerts of Grand Junction, and partial sponsorship was obtained by KMTS “Your Brand of Country” music station.
Doors opened up to the line of hundreds of fans at 6:56 p.m. Some came as far as Greeley. Those waiting patiently in line were asked who their favorite cowboy is. John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Hoots Gibson, and Tom Mix were some of the answers.
What Riders in the Sky song fans were looking forward to hearing included: “Water”, “Slaying of the Slug”, “Ghost Riders”, “Side Meat”, “Reincarnation”, and “Lone Ranger.”
Yodeling is one of the band’s signature acts and security asked our newspaper reporter to leave at this point of the program. Reactions of the fans were not solicited after the concert.
The rock and roll group Missing Link played the last set of Strawberry Days on Sunday, June 22nd. Their finale included songs like “Oh What a Night,” Linda Ronstadt’s “Can’t Go Home,” “La Bomba,” and other popular songs by the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, the Go-Gos, Guess Who, Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Pat Benatar, and the Doobie Brothers. The harmony of lead singers Holly and Kim proved magic in inspiring the crowd to dance.
This cafe is a great eat for baked goods, like cinnamon rolls and blueberry muffins, Boar’s Head premium roast beef, and quiche. It is located at 730 Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs.

BILLY PLAYS THE HACIENDA EL PATRON DURING DINNER HOURS IN NEW CASTLE
You will come across great dinner music in New Castle. Keyboardist Billy thinks of himself as a lucky guy, particularly after Doyle’s help from Lubbock, Texas, and getting his buddy Joel to be sideman on recent recordings of ten songs. All the while they kept their recording session on key. They also included Mac Davis’ ‘Barstools and Babies Don’t Mix’ on the CD.
Billy’s musical lyrics are provacative. Such as during ‘Living the Lies’, he sings “how many people do we know… tell me you know one.” Billy is very articulate in playing the piano and keyboards. ‘Walking the Tightropes,’ and ‘She Caught Me Napping,’ are other original songs.
On the patio at the restaurant, Billy sings many popular artists’ songs.
GLENWOOD SPRINGS SUMMER MUSIC IN THE PARK ENDS WITH A “RIPPLE” NEAR THE COLORADO RIVER

NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT by Bradley
This is a ‘Draconion Law.’ Domestic security procedures have been established indefinately. Persons apprehended are treated similar to terrorist prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Bradley was unable to finish his story. His camp was raided by local GSPD at 4 a.m. during the week of July 27th. Police apparently were not searching for him but mistakenly another person whose bicycle was found nearby. Bradley voluntarily left the area heading southwest to an area more ‘user friendly.’
