The newspaper recently received the Spirit of Fountain award from the city of Fountain in recognition for the paper's many decades of service to the community, and in light of the announcement of its closure.

Spirit of Fountain Award Overview - Mayor Sharon Thompson provided this background on the award: "The Spirit of Fountain award is a very special recognition that has been developed for the Mayor to recognize those who represent 'Pure Colorado' and all that Fountain stands for in their words, actions, and deeds. This concept was originally envisioned by Mayor Gabriel Ortega, when he was in office, as a unique way to honor those who have – often over a number of years – done something so important or momentous for the Fountain citizens that it needs to be acknowledged and proclaimed. The Spirit of Fountain is not an annual award, nor does it have a regular timeframe for consideration. It is given as the situation dictates. This is not a participation medal. Rather, It represents the highest ideals of service, partnership and collaboration, love of community, and sacrifice. All topped with a sincere desire to make our community a better place for current and future generations."
