The Western Museum of Mining & Industry is pleased to announce the February 9 opening of its next exhibit, “Minerals You Use Everyday from the National Forests.” This exhibit consists of an interactive component from the National Museum of Forest Service History and a selection of minerals from WMMI’s collection. Whether we realize it or not, modern civilization is heavily dependent on minerals for everything from computers and electricity to toothpaste and makeup. This exhibit highlights this importance and demonstrates how America’s national forests help supply the country’s mineral needs. The exhibit officially opens at 6 p.m. on February 9, followed by a 7 p.m lecture by Tom L. Thompson, president of the National Museum of Forest Service History. Thompson’s subject is “A History of the Forest Service: Reflecting on the Times, Ties, Timbers, Stakes, and Statutes.” Light refreshments will be offered. The museum requests that those interested in attending please contact the museum to reserve a spot. Please call (719) 488-0880 or respond by e-mail at rsvp@wmmi.org. This exhibit will be open through June 3. A second lecture will be presented on April 13 by Mindy S. Vogel, a Forest Service geologist, entitled “Rock, Paper, Forest Service: A Summary of Mining and Permitting on Forest Service Lands.” To learn more about WMMI, its programs, and events, please visit the museum website, www.wmmi.org.

John Michael Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music’s most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for picking hits. Since the days when “Life’s A Dance” turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John Michael’s rich baritone has carried that most important of assets - believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist. Rhinestoned says it all. No other word, real or invented for the occasion, sums up as well where Pam Tillis stands now. She is, after all, a superstar as well as a survivor. A child of Music City royalty and a former rebel, she was determined to find her own way as a singer and songwriter - and she succeeded. A CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, she has written songs for some of the top singers in and beyond Nashville, including more than a few of her own hits. She knows what it’s like to break the platinum barrier, to top the singles charts time and again, to bask in an ovation at her induction as a member of the Opry or play in the intimate hush of the Bluebird Café. She has bathed in the lights of Broadway, posed for glamour magazine spreads, sung ballads in Bay Area bistros, batted wicked one-liners back to Tom Bergeron on Hollywood Squares, even made cameos in movies. But no matter where she wandered, Pam Tillis never lost her connection to country music - even when country began to lose touch with itself. Trends came and went, and though she rolled easily with the tides and drew something from every new twist, she was aware that changes come with a cost, even as the business side of country flourished.

It includes a USA Cycling sanctioned bicycle race and an open fun ride that ascends to the summit of Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain. The Pikes Peak Highway will delay opening to the Summit until 9am. The North Slope Recreation Area will open at 7:30am. The route covers 12.42 miles, with an elevation gain of 4,725 feet, an average grade of 7%, through 156 turns, to conclude at the 14,115 foot summit.  All participants in the USA Cycling Hill Climb National Championships must be annual members of USAC to compete.  For more information or to register go to www.usacHillClimbNationals.org. If competitive racing is not your thing, the Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb Gran Fondo will be taking place at the same time as the race.  The community fun ride will use the same start line but has three different distances to choose from.  Riders can pick the distance that best fits their ability level.  Riders as young as four years old have participated in the gran fondo.  Clocks will be used for the fun ride so that you can time yourself to your finish line.  Medals will be awarded to the top riders in each of the distances.  Summiteer Medals are awarded to all riders that reach the top of the mountain.  For more information or to register go to www.PikesPeakCyclingHillClimb.org.

The Western Museum of Mining & Industry is pleased to announce the February 9 opening of its next exhibit, “Minerals You Use Everyday from the National Forests.” This exhibit consists of an interactive component from the National Museum of Forest Service History and a selection of minerals from WMMI’s collection. Whether we realize it or not, modern civilization is heavily dependent on minerals for everything from computers and electricity to toothpaste and makeup. This exhibit highlights this importance and demonstrates how America’s national forests help supply the country’s mineral needs. The exhibit officially opens at 6 p.m. on February 9, followed by a 7 p.m lecture by Tom L. Thompson, president of the National Museum of Forest Service History. Thompson’s subject is “A History of the Forest Service: Reflecting on the Times, Ties, Timbers, Stakes, and Statutes.” Light refreshments will be offered. The museum requests that those interested in attending please contact the museum to reserve a spot. Please call (719) 488-0880 or respond by e-mail at rsvp@wmmi.org. This exhibit will be open through June 3. A second lecture will be presented on April 13 by Mindy S. Vogel, a Forest Service geologist, entitled “Rock, Paper, Forest Service: A Summary of Mining and Permitting on Forest Service Lands.” To learn more about WMMI, its programs, and events, please visit the museum website, www.wmmi.org.

John Michael Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music’s most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for picking hits. Since the days when “Life’s A Dance” turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John Michael’s rich baritone has carried that most important of assets - believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist. Rhinestoned says it all. No other word, real or invented for the occasion, sums up as well where Pam Tillis stands now. She is, after all, a superstar as well as a survivor. A child of Music City royalty and a former rebel, she was determined to find her own way as a singer and songwriter - and she succeeded. A CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, she has written songs for some of the top singers in and beyond Nashville, including more than a few of her own hits. She knows what it’s like to break the platinum barrier, to top the singles charts time and again, to bask in an ovation at her induction as a member of the Opry or play in the intimate hush of the Bluebird Café. She has bathed in the lights of Broadway, posed for glamour magazine spreads, sung ballads in Bay Area bistros, batted wicked one-liners back to Tom Bergeron on Hollywood Squares, even made cameos in movies. But no matter where she wandered, Pam Tillis never lost her connection to country music - even when country began to lose touch with itself. Trends came and went, and though she rolled easily with the tides and drew something from every new twist, she was aware that changes come with a cost, even as the business side of country flourished.
