Bringing up the lights

       A Colorado Springs Utilities crew erects one of the 41 new Old Colorado City streetlights March 7 on the south side of Colorado Avenueís 2400 block. Right: Pat Palacol hooks a line to the pole so it can be reeled into place. Below: With the pole now in place, Tony Espinosa (in bucket) adjusts the light heads while superintendent Jim Rhodes (far right) talks with Palacol and Jeff Lobato works on the wiring. Rhodes said that next would be installing the seven side-street lights. All the work is slated to be done before the end of March.
