Lions Club Easter Egg Race set for March 30
The annual Lions Club Easter Egg Race will be held in its original location at the north end of City Park. This year’s race previously had been planned for the CNCC Bell Tower parking lot.
The egg race is at 1 p.m. March 30. The Lions Club recently decided to keep the event where it has been held for years, as recent warm temperatures will allow the area north of the swimming complex to be clear of snow in time for Easter. Lions Club members said participants should arrive early because the eggs can be collected in as few as eight minutes.

Care center recognized for 3rd straight year
The Doak Walker Care Center has been listed by U.S. News and World Report as one of the Best Nursing Homes in Colorado for the third straight year, according to a news release from Yampa Valley Medical Center
Doak Walker also received the highest overall rating of five stars from the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and a perfect score of zero deficiencies in the 2012 unannounced inspection conducted by the Colorado Department of Health, according to the release.
“I attribute our successes to the incredibly caring people who work here and the national Eden Alternative model of care, which we have embraced and practiced since 2005,” Doak Walker administrator Lee Dickey said in the release.
“The Eden Alternative is dedicated to changing the culture of nursing homes through the development of meaningful relationships between residents and staff,” Dickey said. “Our focus is on making life worth living by working toward eliminating loneliness, helplessness and boredom.”
