Spent last Tuesday night on special duty, acting as an Associated Press writer to cover the Rio Blanco County elections for the state media, and a heck of a night it was. I’ve done it before and it isn’t really any fun, but it is always interesting to see the work being done.
I applaud the nudge from the Town of Meeker requiring residents and landlords to pick up limbs and trash from their properties and to require thigh-high grass to be cut.
It was a fun weekend to be working. Can’t always say that, but covering the Meeker Kids’ Fishing Day on Saturday morning and traveling upriver to attend the Buford School benefit fish fry on Saturday afternoon reminded me of what is fun about covering local events for a small publication.
Father’s Day is Sunday, and once again Dad is being honored for the role he plays at home and in society.
It looks like there is eventually going to be a new dam in Rio Blanco County’s future. And that is likely to cause a torrent of criticism from the environmental factors in the county, the state and the nation. Time after time, the need has been shown for more water throughout the West and time […]
Memorial Day is special for a couple different reasons. First, but hopefully not foremost on everyone’s mind, it is the first holiday of summer. It is a time for family gatherings, perhaps a round of golf when the weather is good, as it was this year, or a time to take the family out fishing […]

I can see sunshine clearly out my window, and that may be a good thing. It may actually turn into spring soon, and that will cheer up a lot of folks in Rio Blanco County who are waiting for sunshine and warmer temperatures after a particularly prolonged winter.
It must be the first of May because all I see outside my window are a bunch of branches swaying and dust in the air. If you are a sinus sufferer, it could be better; if not, the last week has been pretty nice if you don’t
The view out the front and back windows looked pretty good on Saturday morning for two of the biggest events of the year in Meeker. Bright and early, hundreds of folks started making their way to Meeker Elementary School for the annual 9HealthFair.
Having had the opportunity to drive in Rangely and Meeker on recent Friday and Saturday nights about 8 p.m., it became immediately obvious that except for a few late-evening diners, there was nothing going on in either town as evidenced by a lack of parked cars or traffic on Main Street in Rangely or Market […]
Looking out the ol’ back window, last week was a crazy time. And since the look is a retrospective, we’ll start with the most recent and work back.
