Chane Smith warms up on the piano in the living room of his home on Exmoor Road. Smith, 22, also plays the clarinet and recently marched in the Fourth of July parade playing the saxophone. He currently works as a cashier at Walmart and will student-teach band classes in Steamboat Springs this fall before graduating from the University of Northern Colorado.

Where is your hometown? “Craig.” What has kept you in Craig? “Family, mostly, but when I’m not in school, it’s nice to come back to the Western Slope where the air is fresh. I’m graduating in December, and I’ll probably still live here while I’m job-hunting. I’m going to be commuting to Steamboat starting in August to student-teach band for sixth-grade through high school.” Motto or outlook on life? “‘Speak softly but carry a big stick’ is probably my favorite quote for that. (Laughs)”
