Meeker Locals

Today is Veterans Day. Take time to thank a veteran for his or her military service. They have paid the highest price to ensure we continue to enjoy the freedom to bicker, point fingers, name-call and play political games with each other. Kind of puts things in perspective, doesn’t it? Thank you, veterans! By the way, the Herald Times still has copies of our veterans’ book, with stories and pictures from Rio Blanco County veterans, available for purchase.
Apparently Colorado’s moose have yet to figure out it’s the season to hide out on private land. Ten moose have been accidentally killed by hunters this year. Perhaps the procedure for obtaining a hunting license should include an “identify your target” test.
