Mark your calendars for inauguration day

At high noon this Saturday, April 7, the new Mayor of Divide will be sworn into office.

And to no one's surprise, the voters' choice is Walter, the three-legged cat. The front-runner all along, he finished with nearly 4,000 votes when voting closed at 7 o'clock tonight. Nakai the wolf was a distant second, at 1,761. None of the other candidates even broke 1,000.

Of course, the ultimate winner is Teller County Regional Animal Shelter, which benefits from the votes; they cost a dollar-donation apiece.

The ceremony will take place at the TCRAS (located at 308 Weaverville Road, behind the sheriff's office), with a barbecue lunch to follow.
