Former Mayor Ted Asti Turns 100 Years Old
The Town would like to recognize former Mayor Ted Asti, who turns 100 years old this month. Ted spent 32 years as Mayor of Superior, beginning his service in 1958 through 1978 and then again from 1986 through 1998. His influence is clearly evident in almost every aspect of municipal policy developed during and after his time as Mayor.  For more information about Ted and his tenure as Mayor, please CLICK HERE to read information from the interpretive sign at Asti Park in Original Town.
850 Pairs of Socks Collected for Sock It To Em Program
During the month of December, Town of Superior residents and friends generously donated 850 pairs of socks as part of the metro Denver Sock it to Em program. Sock it to Em was started to raise awareness that socks are the number one needed - but often overlooked - clothing item needed by the homeless population. More than half of the socks we collected were donated by Waste Connections, the waste collection company that services Superior. The Sock it to Em program encourages mayors to deliver the collected socks to homeless shelters or organizations in their community, wherever they feel the socks would have the greatest impact. This year we delivered the socks collected in Superior to a local charity organization familiar to many of our residents, Precious Child in Broomfield. Founded in 2008, Precious Child assists children and families facing difficult life challenges such as abuse and neglect, crisis situations and poverty. They work with more than 300 agency partners in eight counties to identify children and families in need. Their Resource Center provides an opportunity for families to obtain donated and carefully selected clothing and supplies free of charge.  

On January 4th my wife Leslie and our two sons delivered the socks to Precious Child and spent a couple of hours volunteering in their donation center. As regular donors to Precious Child we are pleased to continue supporting the important work they are doing in our community.

Colorado winters bring an average of 88 inches of snow to Boulder Valley every year! The Town of Superior is continuing to grow our snow removal assistance program that matches residents in need of assistance with committed local volunteers who will shovel sidewalks following significant snow fall. This program provides families, youth, and individuals with a direct way to help neighbors in need!

Need Assistance? Residents who may quality include:  
- Individuals with a disability or physical impairment;
- Seniors who are physically unable to lift or move snow and ice;
- Individuals unable to pay for a private contractor to provide this service;

Interested in Volunteering?  
Volunteers will be assigned a neighbor who needs assistance with snow removal. Upon pairing, contact information will be exchanged and communication will remain between the Snow Buster and resident moving forward. If possible, snow should be removed by 12:00 pm of the day following snow fall consisting of more than 2 inches of snow. *The only required section of property to remove snow from is the side walk in front of the home.*

For more information and to register for assistance or volunteering visit www.volunteersuperior.com or call 303-499-3675 ext 122

Historical Commission Corner
Commission members and volunteers wish all of you a Happy New Year as we enter the second month of 2018. The nation is currently hit with a serious outbreak of the flu and, sadly, there have been a significant number of fatalities. Our current situation in nothing compared to the Influenza Pandemic that began 100 years ago. It was in January of 1918 that this huge epidemic, also known as the Spanish Flu, swept throughout the world. So far there have been a small number of fatalities in this current epidemic. But from January 1918 to December 1920, over 500 million people were infected throughout the world and between 50 and 100 million deaths occurred. Authorities estimate this fatality rate equaled three to five percent of the world’s population. A walk through local cemeteries, including Superior’s, show many inscriptions with the dates 1918-1920 indicating deaths due to the epidemic. 

Fortunately, modern medical practices make even our current situation unusual. The flu was only one of many contagious diseases that plagued our ancestors in years gone by. 

To learn more about the history of Superior, drop in at the Superior Historical Museum on Saturday, February 3rd. It is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and located at 2nd and Maple in Original Superior. For more information contact Bryan Meyer, Town Staff, at 303-499-3675 or Larry Dorsey, Commission Chair, at 303-499-1969.

Pictured above: Mayor Folsom participating as a victim at RMFD's annual joint ice rescue training in January.
February 4-10 is National Burn Awareness week. Burns can come from fire, hot surfaces, fire places and hot liquids. Young children and elderly are at particularly high risk for burns. Prevention around your home can prevent life threatening and life altering injuries from occurring. NFPA has several burn prevention tips that will help you keep your family safe.

Despite warmer temperatures in Superior the streams and ponds still have ice on them. On warm days the ice on bodies of water begins to melt. Then when it turns cold again the water freezes again. This freeze thaw cycle makes ice weak.  The best way to stay safe on ice is to stay off of it. Teach your children to stay off the ice, their life depends on it. If your pet goes on the the ice, DO NOT go after them. If you go after your pet and fall in as well we will rescue you first and your pet will have to wait. Call 911 immediately for any person or pet that has fallen through the ice. Please keep talking to the person or pet and encourage them stay calm but do not go onto the ice yourself.  CLICK HERE for more information on ice safety.
