Salida Lore – March 2008 – Colorado Central Magazine
THE BETTER HALF AND I were born and raised in Salida. As such, it is our hometown. In July of 1957, I left Salida to enlist in the U.S. Air Force. When Diann Ayers and I got married in 1958, she also left Salida. After I was discharged from the military in 1961, we moved back to Colorado, to eventually make our home in Broomfield.
