Momentary Lapse

From the managing editor: A momentary lapse

By Matt Lit. Some of you like the idea of burning issues of The Crestone Eagle and do so regularly on social media. And some of you have been wondering why there haven’t been boxes of newspapers at The Crestone Eagle offices for fire starter. To that burning issue, I can respond. We simply didn’t print as many during our lean months to help save on costs. To those who continue throwing stones at us for not covering other burning issues, we’re trying.  The Crestone Eagle has made many changes and we want to make more. With a limited number of...
