Silverthorne Police: above and beyond
The Silverthorne Police Department should be recognized for the great work they do, especially Sergeant Bryan Siebel and Officer Josh Mazone and how they went out of their way to make my children happy, especially my 5-year-old, who is not a police fan, after she witnessed her dad being arrested 3 years ago and then being deported. Ever since, she has been traumatized. She said the police are bad people because they took her dad because he doesn’t have “papers.”
I wanted to do something special for my 5-year-old so she could see that the police are not as bad as she thinks. I asked a couple of officers if they could deliver some gifts, and they agreed. On the morning of Dec. 24, 2013 both Siebel and Mazone delivered a bag of gifts to my daughters. At first my 5-year-old wasn’t too thrilled, but then she thanked them and gave them a hug. After they left, my daughter asked me: “Mommy, if the police are nice and they brought us presents then why did they take my dad?” My heart broke I didn’t know what to say. Anyway, thank you Silverthorne Police, Lydia Sanchez.

Volunteering with CASA
A CASA volunteer is a court-appointed, special advocate for an abused or neglected child in our community. This means when a child, through no fault of their own, is suddenly “part of the system,” they have one person whose only focus is to get them into a safe, permanent home quickly. A CASA volunteer listens to what the child wants, advocates for what the child needs, just wants what is in the best interests of the child, and communicates these things to the judge who is making the decisions about the rest of the child¹s life. The goal of CASA of the Continental Divide is for 100 percent of abused and neglected children in Lake, Eagle, Summit and Clear Creek counties to have a CASA volunteer. For that to happen, we need more CASA volunteers. There is an informational meeting at the Avon library Thursday, Jan. 9, at 6 p.m., and the next CASA volunteer training begins Jan. 25. Please consider becoming a CASA volunteer. For more information about the CASA organization or the upcoming training, go to www.mtncasa.org or call (970) 513-9390.
