Mallett Excavating in Woodland Park is doing multiple mitigation projects in the Ute Pass area. With the Rapid Installment Barrier System, RIBS, technology, the barrier bags are proven to be more effective than regular sand bags. Last week, Rick Mallett, left, and his son, Travis Mallett, installed the barrier system at the Alpine Autism Center in Mountain Shadows in Colorado Springs.
Corey McNellis was a two-time Colorado wrestling champion at Ponderosa. His older brother Chris was the Mustangs' first-ever state champ.
