    Episode 33: Medal of Honor tribute

    Jim & Paulette Stuart speak to Dave Moore about the Medal of Honor.  Pueblo is known as the Home of the Heroes but do you know the reason behind it?

    Pueblo is known as the hometown of four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients – William J. Crawford – Army – WWII; Carl L. Sitter -Marines – Korea; Raymond G. “Jerry” Murphy- Marines- Korea;  and Drew D. Dix- Army -Vietnam.

    To honor this history, The Pueblo Home of Heroes Association unveiled a new Medal of Honor Information Center for the Pueblo Convention Center Grand Hall. Dave Moore was part of the many contributors to the project. 

    It is designed to be a multi-generational interactive education tool.  It will feature the uniforms, medals and stories of Pueblo’s four Medal of Honor recipients just like the original design however it now will tell the stories of Pueblo Veterans, promote patriotism and illuminate the sacrifices our military service men and women have made for their country.

    In addition, it now will shows the viewers information about other military sites of interest in Pueblo, museums in the vicinity and places of interest in the downtown area.

    Episode 32: Fire Preparedness with A Pueblo Fire Captain

    This month Dave Moore talks with Pueblo Fire Captain Woody Percival about important fire preparedness tips no matter if you live in the county, the mountains or a populated part of town. 

    Even though southern Colorado had a late May snow and is seeing some rain, Captain Percival explains that we still need to be aware of potential fires. 

    He says a disaster like the Marshall Fire, Black Forest or Waldo Canyon Fire CAN happen in Pueblo County if we aren't careful.

    He explains how you can be fire wise and lists preventative measures you can do at your home, so if a fire does break out in your neighborhood you're likely protected.   

    He also explains what weather conditions are a perfect recipe for a devastating fire and what activities are and are NOT permitted during those times.

    Episode 30: A gateway to our future while embracing our past

    Episode 30: A gateway to our future while embracing our past

    Dave Moore is back for our 30th episode. We're welcoming Steve Nawrocki & Bill Zwick to the podcast.  These two men have been instrumental in designing, funding and planning the Gateway to the Southwest project. 

    You may have noticed one of the sculptures at Pueblo's north entrance at the Dillon Drive bridge.  The two sculptures intend to welcome people to Pueblo, encourage drivers to stop in our town and not just drive through, while also paying homage to the history.  Historically the border of the U.S. & Mexico ran along the Arkansas River, so Pueblo is indeed the Gateway to the southwest.   

    Dave chats with Steve & Bill about the accomplishments of the projects so far, how the pandemic set them back funding-wise and what you can do to help get the project completed.

    Since it's tricky to observe the huge sculptures on the side of the interstate, there will be Gateway Replica Sculptures  on the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk Project (HARP) in downtown Pueblo.   

    Tap here to learn how to donate.
