Bob Ballard performs for Pueblo House-Fundraiser!

Our guest Bob Ballard arrived from California and played guitar and sang along the Pueblo RiverWalk on Friday.  Pueblo House collaborated with Operation Paintbrush from NeighborWorks (who are fixing and painting  2 blocks of homes on the Eastside of Pueblo) to do a fundraiser.  Then, on Saturday he performed at “The Daily Grind” on Union Ave. where he gave another stellar performance.  Bob writes his own songs and you can’t help but find yourself humming and singing them long after the music stops.

Pueblo police approach city council to make “new rules”

July 11th, 2015 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in Cinco de Mayo | City Council Meetings | Pueblo - (Comments Off on Pueblo police approach city council to make “new rules”)

Check out this video of a Pueblo City Council meeting July 7th.

Artists give the ‘V’ a makeover!

It was a lot of work removing the mountains of tape which secured the posters on one side of the ‘V’.  No matter how hard we tried, keeping it in tact and looking nice was difficult.

No longer will the pieces of posters being flying off as we occupy the roads!   All the stickers ad  posters have been removed.  The artists Alais Clay (from Denver) and Brett Jones (from Utah) have painstakingly removed all traces of stickers, cleaned, scraped and sanded this beautiful beast and have now transformed it into a work of art for all to see.   Everyone around the Country will be able to enjoy for years to come.   We don’t know how to thank these artists enough.   (more…)
