Free library yoga practice to focus on Tias Little DVD
Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free yoga session for February's community yoga practice focusing on Tias Little's "River Flow: Opening the Currents of a Yoga Practice" DVD at 10 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, in Library Hall. The 80-minute practice is designed for all levels to work at their own pace. Bring a mat and blanket.

As a community of yogis, the focus is on a different yoga instructor's DVD or CD during each session. Participants work at their own pace throughout each session and soak up the support of the local yoga community while absorbing the teaching of some of the world's most esteemed yogis projected on the big screen with surround sound in Library Hall.

'Steamboat Round the Bend' history book back in print
"Steamboat Round the Bend," a local history book by the late Dee Richards, is back in print through a partnership between Steamboat Pilot & Today and the Tread of Pioneers Museum.
To mark the re-release of Richard's book, veteran reporter Tom Ross and advertising representative Deb Proper, both colleagues of Richards during her 25-year tenure as editor of the Steamboat Pilot from 1965 to 1990, will share remembrances of Richards at a special event planned for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, at Butcherknife Brewing Co., 2815 Elk River Road.
The event is free and open to the community, and all who attend will enjoy one free craft beer. Richards' friends and family are also encouraged to attend and will be invited to share their memories of the longtime editor during the celebration of her book's re-release.
"She was the epitome of a country editor, Rocky Mountain style," Ross said.
In a column he wrote after Richards' death at the Doak Walker on June 10, 2007, Ross described his former boss as someone who didn't know the meaning of the word vanity and whose sense of humor "tilted toward self-deprecating."
"For me, she always had a personality of a magnitude similar to that of historical and mythical figures such as the Unsinkable Molly Brown or Annie Oakley," wrote Ross, who also noted that Richards influenced the lives of several generations of journalists in Northwest Colorado during the course of her career.
"Steamboat Round the Bend" is considered to be one of the premier history books about Steamboat's early years. The book was originally published by the Steamboat Pilot in 1976.
"The book has a wealth of information culled from early Steamboat Pilot newspapers, woven together with many early photographs and an interview with the founder of Steamboat, James H. Crawford," said James L. Crawford, local historian and great-grandson of James H. Crawford. "Dee wrote in a very entertaining style, with each chapter able to stand on its own."
