You may begin cooking no earlier than 8 a.m. and judging will be at 3 p.m. If you need more information on cooking time please notify Camilla, Kirstin or Bethany at 675-8211.

You may cook more slabs if you wish. The judging will be done by a judging panel that has been preselected. There will be a cash prize awarded for first, second and third places. Call 970-675-8211 with any questions.
RANGELY — John Durfee was 10 the first time he smoked pot. He was 12 the first — and only — time he smoked, or freebased, cocaine. At 17, he entered treatment for alcohol addiction.
From poultry to photography, swine to sewing, here are the results of the recently completed 2009 Rio Blanco County Fair, which was deserving of a blue ribbon, for sure. Congratulations to all of the participants!
