Fatality On Deer Mountain In RMNP
At 5:50 p.m. Saturday, September 29, Rocky Mountain National Park's dispatch center received a cell phone call that a 50-year-old female had taken a reported 40 to 50 foot fall on the north side of Deer Mountain. She had been hiking in the area with a family member. Park rangers reached her body at 8:10 p.m. Her body was approximately three miles from the Deer Mountain Trailhead in rocky, steep terrain. Park staff stayed with her body overnight. Her body was flown from the area at 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, September 30, and transferred to the Larimer County Coroner. She has been identified as Toni B. Henthorn of Highlands Ranch, Colorado. As a way to thank our downtown merchants for their generosity each and every year at Halloween, why not consider purchasing a few bags of Halloween treats and donate it to one or more of our downtown shops who so graciously give of their time and money to purchase treats as well as staff their front Candidate information provided by the candidates themselves is available on line through a project of the League, www.VOTE411. Also there will be an Estes Voter Education Forum on October 18 for the community to hear from candidates who will represent us at the national, state and local levels. The Forum also will offer a non-partisan review of both sides of all the issues that will be on the ballot for this election. In addition there are English and Spanish brochures prepared by the Colorado League that discuss these issues, and each household should have received a blue booklet put out by the Legislative Council of the Colorado General Assembly on the ballot issues and the recommendations on the retention of judges. Remember the last day to register to vote in this year's election October 9, 2012. The League and the Library urge you to register now!
