Another hint of spring is in store for the weekend after a slightly cooler start Friday.

High temperatures will be in the 40s over most of the eastern plains of Colorado Friday, though La Junta and Otero county may reach 50. Light overnight snow will mostly dissipate by early morning, with clouds lingering later into the morning. Look for wind gusts around 30 miles per hour continuing through the day into Friday night.

If it was easy, everyone would do it!! Wrestling is not for the weak at heart and you must wear your guts on your shirtsleeves, you must give 110% to be satisfied with your performance and you must know that at the end of every match there is only one hand that gets raise.  The performance the County Line Rivals put on this weekend at Regionals was exceptional.  Each of these fine athletes came together and managed to pull off the Regional Championship in the Class 2A Region 2 tournament held in Sanford this past weekend.
