Delta United Methodist Church is again offering after-school care when children are released early from school. This outreach is for kindergarten-middle school children. Like last year, Delta County School transportation will have a designated bus for elementary school children to ride. They will be dropped off in the parking lot across from the church (near the fire station).
There is no charge for this program, and children will be provided snacks, crafts time, storytelling, games and help with homework. Volunteers are retired teachers and other staff and are first aid/CPR certified.
Fliers about the program can be obtained from the school's offices and permission slips should be returned to the schools or the church.
At about 9:50 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, officers of the Delta Police Department were dispatched to a robbery reported at Arby's, located at 107 Gunnison River Drive. An extensive search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.
The suspect was reported to have walked into Arby's and after a brief conversation with an employee, was able to leave the store with a small amount of cash and coins.
