Question: What Is The Significance Of The Teal Ribbons Around Town?

Answer: Teal Is The Color Which Represents Sexual Assault Awareness Month
The streets of Pagosa Springs are lined with teal ribbons as a visual reminder that unfortunately, there are people who experience physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Rise Above Violence raises awareness about this important issue in our community. Preventing acts of sexual violence starts with sharing with our community and providing education. 
Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program  or ACVAP promotes the belief that all people have the right to live free from violence. They provide support and advocacy services for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault and other inter personal violence. ACVAP has trained advocates that provide 24-hour assistance with emergency needs, crisis intervention, transportation, advocacy (including court), counseling, information and referral. Bi-monthly support groups for women, children and teens are available. Professional trainers uphold lasting community change through violence prevention education programs aimed at youth, specialized training to targeted audiences, and outreach efforts and events for the community. All ACVAP services are free and confidential in both Spanish and English
Statistics show that one in three teens in the U.S. experience physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Women between the ages of 16 and 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence. Sadly, only 18 percent of teens affected by relationship violence ever tell anyone. Everyone deserves love and respect. Let’s work together to support cultivating healthy, safe and respectful relationships.
For more information, visit www.acvap.org or, for support, call our 24-hour local hotline at 264-9075.

Dear Editor..

My wife and I bought a home in Pagosa Springs in 2005 as a second home. We have close friends who have had a second home here since 2000 and highly recommended we come here. We are so glad we did. On average, we have spent 2-3 months here a year. Although our primary home is out of state, we consider ourselves Pagosans and are proud to do so. We have spent tens of thousands of dollars furnishing our house from local businesses. We’ve had dozens and dozens of friends and relatives visit with us or come out on their own. Since 2014, we began renting our home out when we weren’t here. Although concerned about the impact this would have on our home, we found that we have taken better care of our home both inside and out due to our desire to make this a first class rental experience. We have spent additional thousands of dollars to upgrade our home for rental purposes. Team Pagosa has been outstanding in their insistence on quality control as well. We have had zero problems. I can’t begin to count the tens of thousands of dollars spent by our guests in local businesses; restaurants, Wolf Creek Skiing, golf, trail rides, balloon trips, souvenirs, hot springs, etc. Multiply this by hundreds of homes just like ours and you get a thriving economy which the local, full-time residents rely on to take care of their families. Pagosa Springs has always been a short-term tourist-based economy supported primarily by the short-term home rental due to a lack of hotel space. Pagosa Springs has made substantial progress in the last few years and needs to keep moving forward, not backward This is 2018, not 1958. We urge the leadership of Archuleta County to resist the small-minded interests of the few, to protect the long term interests of the majority.

Sincerely Proud Pagosans,

Chuck and Janet Chillingworth
