Frankie Dvorsky – Greenhorn Valley News – September 27, 2002 – Courageous Frankie Passes Away Sunday – The brave son of Billie Jo and Dave Dvorsky (formerly of Rye) died Sunday due to illness, but most likely walked into heaven to a large applause for a courageous battle fought. The eleven year-old, stricken with leukemia just four years ago, was well publicized in local news for his loving attitude and active lifestyle. Once in remission, then rediagnosed with the illness just last year, Frankie touched the hearts of many Pueblo and Greenhorn Valley residents. In March, they rallied in his support to earn much needed funds for various expenses while he was awaiting a bone morrow transplant. Although he fell too ill for the procedure, family members said one could never tell he was a sick little boy. The day before he passed, Frankie had a high fever, then recovered for the rest of the day to enjoy his brother's first birthday party. That was typical of Frankie's thoughtful nature. Frankie's services were held Wednesday, Sept. 26. He is survived by his parents; sister Alexis; and brothers Daucin and Justin; grandfather Raymond Cordova; grandmother Nancy Dvorsky; and special friend Hunter Golab.

Dyer, E. F.
E. F. Dyer – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – August 13, 1875 – Lake County – From a letter recently received from Lake county, we make the following extracts: “All quiet now in the upper valley of the Arkansas river, but Brazee's court commences at Granite to-day, and we cannot tell, where we sit, what is hidden in the womb of the future. I am informed that Gov. Routt is determined to push things in Lake county, because we are small and easily handled, no doubt. We are so very little that we are not at all dangerous to handle. There is no need of sending a territorial posse to overawe the people into submission, as one man, having proper authority, can arrest every one of the anti-Gibbs-Dyer party in Lake county, but I very much doubt if they would allow themselves to be bullied, brow-beat, and insulted by barbarian militia from another county or counties. I would not be responsible for the consequences. It is barely possible, but not very probable, that they might be welcomed by bloody hands to hospitable graves. I am positive that we are abundantly able to regulate our own matters, without any outside aid or interference. E. F. Dyer was assassinated by one or two fanatics, no doubt, but not by the whole people of Lake county, and if so, why should the entire people have to bear the blame and be threatened with fire and sword. The people court investigation, and if all are proved to be breakers of the law, let us all be punished; and if only one or two are guilty, punish them, but not the innocent, and, as I said before, the people of Lake county, or enough of them, are loyal to the laws of Colorado, and are ever ready and anxious to assist in enforcing law and order.”
