Meeker Locals: Aug. 6 edition

MEEKER | Fair week is kind of an end-of-summer warning bell. There’s only a few weeks until the start of the new school year. It seems like this summer was unusually short, perhaps because it was so cold and rainy throughout June. Maybe we’ll get an extended Indian summer this fall. Unfortunately, it will probably be too late for whatever’s left of our gardens!
haroldtymes4cIf you haven’t been out of town toward Rifle lately, be forewarned: road construction is scheduled to start up Aug. 10 on a section of Hwy. 13. Let’s hope this project goes a little smoother than the past two projects.
