  Foto Friday...Unbelievable, There's a Gas War in Delta, CO. Yes I really paid this for gasoline today. I was only disappointed because my tank wasn't on empty. Can you believe this price? This new station opened on Wednesday. I'll give them a plug. It's the station in the picture. There's another gas station across the street, and well you know how competition goes. A half hour before I took this picture, the price was 2.22 a gallon. I had to do a double take and almost rear ended the guy in front of me. Before I left town, I stopped by to fill up my tank and the price per gallon had already dropped. While I was pumping, the station across the street was lowering their price....AGAIN. I wonder how this all ended up. If this is what we do for fun in a small town, I want to have more f...

Delta County, Colorado Habitat for Humanity...Thinking Outside The Box. For a small, rural county, Habitat for Humanity of Delta County, Colorado is making great strides. Delta County has less than 32 thousand people. That means there's a limited number of resources and funds for the group to work with, but in the last year, the group has gotten a deserving family a house, done a complete remodel of a house for a family, put two new roofs on a house, and now it has this project in front of it. Delta County, Colorado Habitat for Humanity was given this bank foreclosure house. The house is very small with only one real bedroom. It wouldn't be suitable for a family. So the group partnered with Delta County's Drug Task Force (Drug Free Delta County)  and is fixing up the house to use as a s...

I haven't run into any personal situations where using electronic signatures would have made my life easier. These types of situations only seem to come up in my business. I have read many entries into this contest, and realize that if the use of electronic signatures was more widespread, it would make life a lot easier for a lot of people. But in my experiences, and need for simplicity, most of my needs for electronic signatures center around working with one entity. What's Up With Blue Ink and HUD...Docusign Would Be Better? Is the government purposely trying to make it difficult to get rid of their bank owned houses? You have to wonder? I've sold more than several HUD homes this year. The practice of requiring ONLY original signatures, in blue ink no less, is so last decade. HUD...Pl...

Stone Mountain Village, Delta, Colorado Real Estate Information. Stone Mountain Village is one of Delta's newer subdivisions. These homes were built between 2005 and 2008.

Sweitzer Lake State Park, Another Delta, Colorado Treasure. Located about one mile south of Delta, Colorado off Hwy 50 is Sweitzer Lake State Park. The park is one of our smaller state parks at 210 acres, but it offers a lot of fun in that small space. Here's some information most Delta locals don't know about the park. Sweitzer Lake State Park was the dream of Morgan Sweitzer as a place for everyone in the area to enjoy nature. The park opened in 1972. The Sweitzer family donated the land for the park in the 1950s.

The lake is a refuge on a hot summer day, and there is a swimming beach. Fishing is also popular and there are many species of fish including ca...
