Letter: Thanks to volunteers for clean up efforts

Dear Editor: On behalf of the Bureau of Land Management White River Field Office, I would like to thank the volunteers who dedicated their Saturday on Nov. 5 to clean up a concentrated trash site on BLM land south of Rangely along the Dragon Road. The BLM partnered with the Rio Blanco County Road and Bridge Department to remove two large dump truck loads of trash gathered by the volunteers. These local volunteers included: Shane Brady, Bob Hazelbush, Daleen Hazelbush, Joseph Ingram, Martin Bills, Bob Kissling, Melanie Kissling, Bryce Rich, Alex Taveras, Dalvis Kendall, Marleen Kindall, Becky Bertoch, Bo Bertoch, Brady Bertoch, Ben Bertoch, Kim Bertoch, Joe Nielsen and Leslie Nielsen. We really appreciate their efforts to clean up public lands that belong to us all.

Sincerely, Kent Walter

Field Manager, BLM White River Field Office
