Awesome Pueblo maker Diana Hall’s company ActivArmor seems about to really take off. The company scans and 3D prints custom casts and splints. The company is a finalist in a competition for additional capital as described in the Pueblo Chieftain. Go Diana!
At the 17 September 2019 meeting of Pueblo Makes, three teams of students from the Pueblo School for Arts and Sciences, mentored by teacher Drew Hirshon, presented their designs for a playground at Pueblo’s Nature Center. Pueblo Energy Academy Remastered (P.E.A.R) presented a plan with a zip line (with seat belt), benches, small animal structures (for example, a coyote), a main play structure, swings, and a poured rubber surface. Playground Inc’s proposal included several features with wheelchair access, including a merry-go-round and swings. They also had a slide, a low ropes course, a large snake sculpture in 3 pieces, and wood chips for ground cover. The Rockey team used the website Playworld which produces playground material from material from landfills. The teams answered questions from the Pueblo Makes members – all done with a high level of professionalism Drew will next be asking his students to work create videos on the topic: What makes Pueblo great.
We joined Historic Pueblo Inc a few months ago and have been to two events: a tour of the Elks Club building on N Santa Fe last month and a fly fishing demo at the Nature Center yesterday. We saw how fishing flies are tied. Fascinating!
At the recommendation of one of Mark’s friends, we tried Cuca’s, a small neighborhood Mexican restaurant, just north of Northern, on Routt. We expected we would be the only nonHispanic people there (and we were), but our money is green – and that’s good because it is a cash only place. We liked the food, the people, and the decor. Nice place to sit and relax with friends. Bonus: they serve huevos rancheros all day.
