Bellhouse’s Third in Fire Drifter Series Released

Local attorney and author Carol Bellhouse announced the release of her latest book, Fire Drifter 3: The Vessel. The third in the Fire Drifter series, follows the first: Meteor Shower and the second: Trails. BellHouse_FireStarter3   

And this Leadville girl always has her hometown in mind when she picks up her pen, evident right from the start. Chapter One opens with “Leadville recedes in the rearview mirror.  The storm clouds over Mt. Elbert are the color of steel. By the time I hit the old schoolhouse and the Malta Curve, I have the Camaro at ninety. I take the corner on the inside, straightening the arc. Led  Zeppelin II roars from the eight-track player.”

 And the reviews are in, including “The third book captures us just as surely as the first two. With top-notch writing, Carol weaves her magic yet again.”

The new baler out at the Lake County Recycling Center is making molehills out of mountains of cardboard. The new piece of equipment was bought with grant funds provided to Lake County Public Works by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. One of the main benefits of baling is organizing and streamlining recyclables, like bulky cardboard. Compacting can also lower waste hauling costs considerably.
