How do you pronounce the name of the town in southwest Colorado that starts with 'M' and is about 30 minutes northwest of Durango?

Mike Tallent is a Mancos resident and he emailed Next about how even people who live there pronounce the town's name several ways.

Next called up the administrator of the Chamber of Commerce to find out how to say it. 

She told us it's pronounced "Mancus." With a "U" sound. You can hear her pronounce it in the video above.
