Delta County Federal Credit Union and First State Bank are accepting donations for Hotchkiss residents Sam and Teri Fritzlan after their home was severely damaged by a fire on Thanksgiving night.
The Fritzlans were able to escape with their animals, but they don't have homeowners insurance and their home will need a lot of work before they can move back in.
Donations can be made at the Hotchkiss, Delta or Cedaredge DCFCU branches or at First State Bank of Colorado offices in Paonia, Cedaredge, Hotchkiss or Delta or any of the branch banks in the state.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
