Comment by Wild Forever Foundation on October 13, 2011 at 9:34am
Wild Forever Foundation is responding to the need of youth education in wildlife safety. We recently encountered a situation where some local children were holding and cuddling a baby skunk. WFF is preparing a presentation to deliver to local elementary school students about the dangers involved with wild animals, specifically diseases like rabies. We feel this program should be delivered directly to the children, along with educational materials to take home to their parents. If you would like to have this program presented in your classroom, please send an email to or call 719-475-9453 and leave a message with your contact information.

‎"COLORADO SPRINGS – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be closing Interstate 25 at Woodmen Road tomorrow night, allowing crews to install a large sign across the highway. 
Beginning at 10 p.m. on Thursday, October 6, all lanes of northbound I-25 will be closed at the Woodmen Road Interchange (Exit 149). All traffic will detour via the off- and on-ramp, with the traffic signals adjusted to provide additional “green” time for the northbound traffic traveling through the intersection at the bottom of the ramp. Some slowing should be expected through the area.
All lanes of northbound I-25 will reopen to traffic by 6 a.m. on Friday. "

We are the BEST non-profit organization out there!  We are a club of men and women who want to improve our Community, further strong Americanism, pat the Youth on the back as we honor them, and our national objective - to  FIGHT CHILD ABUSE.  Our Craft Fair in Falcon is designed to boost community involvement, bring in handmade items for the neighborhood to get as Christmas presents, and lastly - the MOST IMPORTANT - give a MOUNTAIN of canned goods, coats, toys and a PILE OF MONEY to High Plains Helping Hands and God's Pantry for those less fortunate.  The Exchange Club of Falcon is a CHAMPION!

Anyone near 423 North Cascade Ave last Saturday around 4:15 probably heard a large explosion.  That was the sound of lightning hitting the McAllister House Museum. It struck the metal rod on the roof bracing the chimney and traveled through the museum and to the Carriage House behind, knocking out the security system, Internet and producing four baseball size holes in the ceiling of the Children's bedroom.  We are still assessing what further damage it might have done.  The fire department has been marvelous, coming out several times to insure there was no chance of fire.  We have repaired the security system so we'll be notified if this happens again anytime soon and are in the process of making as many repairs as we can.  We are also looking into the possibility of installing a lightning rod, despite its lack of historical accuracy.  After all, the McAllisters didn't have gutters either and yet you'll see them on the House.

We will be conducting a fund-raiser shortly to help with the expense as we carry a high deductible with our insurance company
