Let me start out with a couple quick reminders that are relevant this week throughout Rio Blanco County. The first is that daylight saving time ends this coming Sunday morning at 2 p.m.
MEEKER I Petitions are being circulated by a Meeker man who is seeking the recall of three veteran members of the Meeker School Board of Trustees.
MEEKER I It’s creepy. And it keeps getting creepier. Such is the Halloween tradition at Antler Taxidermy in Meeker for the past 34 years, and, according to owner Donna Wille, “it will likely continue for many years as me and my husband, Bill, truly enjoy Halloween and its scary, gory, graphic nature.”
Whether I sit close to the window or with my nose pressed against the pane, the subject of local ballot initiative 1A, which would pave the way for Rio Blanco County to get broadband, is clear as a bell a winning proposition.
MEEKER I The Meeker Chamber of Commerce has a new set of board officers this year with the election having been held Oct. 8.
Hopefully, the windows are clear and the vision is of a sunny election with ballot measure 3A passing so the Meeker School District can get on with doing what it is they are supposed to be doing, and that is offering students the best education possible.
MEEKER I Homecoming activities are happening all week at Meeker High School. Events started Monday and culminate in a volleyball match and Homecoming dance Saturday.
RBC I After more than six months in a row in which the Rio Blanco County unemployment rate fell by one-tenth (.1) of a percent, that good news was magnified several times by the county unemployment rate for August.
