Now that cold temperatures have settled into the valley, motorists are letting their engines run longer. Carbondale has its eyes on this issue.

Valley Meats is a butcher shop in Carbondale, off of Highway 133. The clientele is mostly Latino. Spanish is mainly what you hear once inside.

  Dan Richardson won Cabondale’s mayoral contest, earning over 50 percent of the vote.

Three information kiosks will be stationed at the Launchpad, The Third Street Center, and later at The Village Smithy today. More will be installed next year.

 

The stations will provide information about creative businesses and hotels, as well as local events. It’s part of an effort to promote Carbondale’s Creative District. It’s a state designation that helps fund and support creative economies.
