Colorado Congressmen condemn actions of middle mile broadband service provider

EAGLE-Net Alliance: We’re on task to bring service to rural Colorado

A state company tasked with establishing broadband infrastructure in rural Colorado communities has come under scrutiny by several Colorado Congressmen. EAGLE-Net Alliance, headquartered in Broomfield, is an intergovernmental organization affiliated with the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. It was created in 2007 to improve broadband access across Colorado, particularly to public schools, to create a comprehensive, statewide network. In 2010, EAGLE-Net was awarded a $100.6 million grant from the United States Department of Commerce’s Broadband Technology Opportunities Program, in coordination with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Officials at EAGLE-Net then identified more than 170 Colorado communities it intends to provide with “middle mile” broadband infrastructure, and to serve as anchor institutions between route lines, before the Aug. 2013 grant deadline. Craig is among those 170 Colorado communities identified to serve as an anchor institution.

Greg Hixson: Thanks for a great season

We would just like to start out by saying what a talented group of young athletes Craig has. We had the honor and privilege of coaching 11 of them on our Doak Walker Chargers team. Every player on the team gave 110 percent and had such great sportsmanship. They always left it all on the field and that's all any coach asks for. So we would just like to say thank you to all our boys for their hard work, great attitudes, and respect. ALL of you were truely amazing. We'd also like to thank their parents for allowing us to be a part of their growth in football and for trusting us to do so.
