Spirit Awards deadline extended

       The deadline for submissions to the second annual Organization of Westside Neighbors (OWN) Spirit Awards has been extended to Oct. 26.
       The announcement of the winners will be Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Colorado Springs Police Department's Gold Hill Substation.
       The awards recognize residents and business owners who have renovated, remodeled or built new in a community-spirited way, according to County Commissioner and Westside leader Sallie Clark, who created the awards last year.
       People can nominate their own properties or someone else's.
       Details on the Spirit Awards and how to obtain an application form will appear in the quarterly OWN newsletter (coming out this month). Information is also available by calling 471-4023.
