Todd Markley, human resources director for Delta County Joint School District #50, is retiring at the end of the school year. Jim Farmer, longtime principal at Garnet Mesa Elementary School, will take his place, with additional duties in middle/high school curriculum and new teacher training.
On Monday, the school district named Joe Mock as Farmer's replacement. Mock will make the move from Lincoln Elementary School, where he has been assistant principal. The school district is also looking for a new principal at Delta Middle School.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
