Yes, we’re still waiting for the ‘Today Show’ story to air, too

The NBC “Today Show” story on the Silverton Standard newspaper was scheduled to air last week, but producer Ian Wenger said it was “bumped” to make room for a special report on Kensington Palace.

The home for the British Royal family recently went through a 12 million pound restoration. “Today Show” host Matt Lauer flew to London to cover that story, thus leaving no air time for the story on the Standard.

At this point there is no telling when the story will air.

Prehistoric residents

to be topic of program

at Fort Lewis College

The Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College continues its program series, “Celebrating the Preservation of our Natural and Cultural Heritage”, on Tuesday, May 22, with a program on the prehistory of the Durango Basketmaker II population.

 May is Colorado’s Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month, and in celebration the Center is presenting results of 10 years of Fort Lewis College Archaeology Field School excavation and research at the Dark Mold site.  

Located just north of Durango in the Animas Valley and near the Falls Creek Rock Shelters, the Dark Mold site thrived from 700 B.C. until A.D. 450. Speakers Mona Charles and Dawn Mulhern will address the questions of: where did these people come from, what was their culture like, what hardships did they face, and what happened to the population.

 Refreshments will be offered beginning at 5:30 p.m., with the program to begin at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
