[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E2497] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] TRIBUTE TO CAROL DODO ______ HON. SCOTT McINNIS of colorado in the house of representatives Monday, December 8, 2003 Mr. McINNIS. Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I rise today to pay tribute to a talented rancher from New Castle, Colorado. Carol Dodo is a family-oriented rancher who has been feeding the citizens of Colorado for forty years. Carol is an intelligent educator and active participant in the beef industry and I would like to join my colleagues here today in recognizing her tremendous service to the New Castle community. The Colorado Cattlemen/Cattlewomen's Association recently named Carol Dodo Cattlewoman of the Year for her long-time dedication to her trade. Carol runs a cow-calf organization at West Elk Ranch north of New Castle. She has been in the ranching business since the mid-fifties and has increased her involvement in the industry over the years by promoting and educating people about the benefits of eating beef. Despite the dwindling number of ranching operations over the years, the Dodo family maintains that raising cattle is a rewarding occupation. Mr. Speaker, Carol Dodo is a dedicated individual who is actively involved in the organization and facilitation of the beef industry in Colorado. Carol has demonstrated a love for ranching that resonates in her compassionate and selfless service to the Colorado Community. Carol's enthusiasm and commitment certainly deserve the recognition of this body of Congress. Congratulations on your award Carol, I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. ____________________
