Eran Schoellhorn and Shasta Foster in “Brilliant Traces.” The
performance by A Theatre Group is scheduled for Friday and Saturday,
March 30-31, at the Grand Imperial Theatre.
'Brilliant Traces' from A Theatre Group
A runaway bride in satin slippers, a hermit trying to Stay that way, and a whiteout in Alaska.
What could possibly happen?  
A Theatre Group will explore this question in their staged reading production of “Brilliant Traces,” a thought-provoking portrait of the human condition that will take you on a tumultuous journey of the human soul as it sorts the anguish of loss with the hope of healing through connection with another human. 
This unforgettable journey will have you laughing and crying as Rosannah DeLuce and Henry Harry warily explore the need to be understood by another human being.
The New York Times says the play “… deals with common issues of love and family, and does so with characters, story and dialogue so fantastic that they could exist only within the enchanted realm of the stage.”   
Shasta Foster and Eran Schoellhorn bring these two to life Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31, at 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Imperial Theatre.  
Box office opens at 7 p.m.  For reservations, call (970) 387-5262, end an e-mail to tickets@atheatregroup.org, or write to ATG, P.O. Box 56, Silverton, CO, 81433.  Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for children.
Harley-Davidson store coming to Silverton
Silverton will be the home this summer of the highest-elevation Harley-Davidson store in the world.
That’s according to Jeff Murray, general manager of Durango Harley-Davidson.
The company is already working to get its new shop ready at 1139 Greene Street.
But it won’t be selling the actual motorcycles in Silverton.
“It will be small,” Murray said, “primarily selling t-shirts, hats, pins, patches, etc. with our proprietary designs on them.”
He said the store will feature a banner at the bottom of the T-shirt designs that says Silverton CO, and promote it as the world’s highest Harley store.
“We will also sell the T-shirts online, which could increase the exposure for Silverton,” Murray said. 
“Assuming we have a good summer, the store will become a permanent seasonal outlet and will then be listed in Harley’s travel guide that goes to over 1 million Harley owners country-wide,” Murray said.  
“We also plan to have some special ride events from Durango to Silverton during the summer.”
Town warns of risk of water line freeze-up
Spring has officially arrived in Silverton, but that doesn’t mean there is a lower risk of water-line freeze-up for residents and homeowners.
Town officials issued a warning on Tuesday regarding the matter
“Please observe that we are NOT out of the woods yet with respect to water-line freezes,” said Town Administrator Jason Wells. “In fact, on the warmest week of the year last week, we were busy thawing out multiple lines around town.”
Town officials say homeowners should not be fooled by the warmer temperatures.
“Despite spring arriving, the frost in the ground continues to creep lower while less snow cover provides less insulation to the pipes beneath,” Wells said.  “As such, this is actually the worst time of year with respect to waterline freezes.”
Wells urged residents to please be vigilant and leave your cold water running just a trickle if you are on the “run list.”  You won’t be charged for this extra usage. 
 If you are not on this list but think you may be in a problem area, please contact the Public Works Department at 387-5523 to inquire.  
“And remember, if your service line freezes, you will be responsible for the costs of thawing it out and if the freeze migrates back to the water main, the Town may hold you responsible for the time and equipment costs associated with thawing the main as well,” Wells said.  “Thank you for helping us stay on top of the situation.”
